One can lose muscle mass that quickly through inactivity and a poor diet. And muscle memory is a concept that explains how someone who does the same set of movements over and over can repeat the task with a high level of precision.

If Franzen has lost a significant amount of muscle, his road to getting it back won't be any easier than yours or mine would be. It's amazing how quickly conditioning and muscle are lost when someone becomes inactive.

Either way, I think it's noble of him to want to play in the Olympics, but he's being a fool about it. He should realize that even if he doesn't rush back
