If You Bulk Up When You’re Young, Your Muscles Will Remember How to Get Big

Your body’s muscles, at least according to researchers who tested their theory on mice, truly have “muscle memory,” remembering their former strength abilities even if you quit the gym for years and begin a diet of bacon and cheese. Which means for those of you who were fit as young people, it should be easier to regain that strength when you’re older. If you were teased for being fat on the playground, well life sucks doubly for you if you want to look like this guy in middle age.
