    wouldn't the higher reps cause me to burn more muscle. I can do roughly 80 pushups nonstop situps i'm almost at 1000. I don't think that light weight will help me too much... I think i'm at more of a damage control stage. Anyone know what i can do to minimalize loss of muscle?

    Considering when I done this program I gained muscle and endurance with the proper diet I dont see the problem.

    Get enough protein and calories. You'll have two weeks rest instead of one.

    Do them super-slow, 10 seconds up and 10 seconds down. It isn't how many you do, it is how intense you make exercise. If you are so good, super-slow doesn't phase you, add weight, have a kid brother sit on your back for pushups, hold a gallon of milk on chest for crunches. Use that mind to increase intensity of everyday movements

    Two weeks is not too long. As long as you don't take two weeks often you dont have to worry!

    I supposed it varies slightly from person to person -- but with a two week break, I don't notice any loss whatsoever. Sure, I am sore as hell after the first workout, but I really don't have any strength or size losses. I suspect if you lose any strength at all, it will be tiny, and will be easily made up within a week or two.

    Don't worry, the break might actually do you some good. Last time I took a break (10 days), I came back and put up a few personal bests.
