You can’t be big all the time!
In the world of bodybuilding, losing muscle size is a cause for concern… in fact, when Steve Cook started to look noticeably smaller, many people chimed in to comment on his loss of size recently. Now, if you’re unaware, Cook was a pretty big guy and always has been, so it’s a little strange to see him smaller than he usually carries himself. But this is not at all a bad thing.
In the old days, people probably wouldn’t think twice about such a thing, however, as we progress through the years, we’ve been conditioned to always want bigger and better.
Well, it turns out life is not always about how big you are at any given moment (Even for fitness celebrities). Cook has experienced what we like to call “life” and he can afford to let his foot off the gas pedal to get his mind and body prepared for what’s ahead.
Cook addressed the reasons for his loss of muscle mass in an Instagram post…
“To those that might think I look skinny or that I’ve lost muscle- you’re right I have. Pretty Much took the month of December off. And I feel great about it.”
Cook has been busy modeling as well as running his gym, and according to his post, taking time off allows him to fall in love with training all over again. He explained how important taking time off is for yourself but he’s now back to training.
Here’s a video of Steve Cook training chest for his first day back in the gym with an explanation of his workout.
It’ll be a great 2019 for Steve Cook as he’s fully recovered and hitting the gym hard like usual.
