This is a question I get ALL the time from people! When many people get into fitness, they are paranoid about losing their hard gained progress. Many people who ask this are worried about losing muscle mass and strength while on summer vacation, relax! If you are worried about this, you are most likely on the verge of overtraining anyway and 1-3 weeks away from the weights is probably the best thing you could possible do. Vacation is a great time to let your joints heal and any overuse injuries subside.
