    Every time i go gym and do a full body orkout the next day i seem to be smaller, not alot smaller but my arms certainly feel smaller. Then all of a sudden the day after that i seem to go back to normal size. Is there any explanation for this or is it all in my head.

    my guess is that when you flex in the gym after a workout you look MASSIVE, then the next day you feel smaller

    maybe right after your workout you look in the mirror and appear bigger from the blood in your muscles and you remember that picture in your head?

    the disks in your spine compress, once you sleep and lie down for a longer period of time you will regain your normal height.

    I suggest that you take photos of yourself after each month, so you can see the real progress and keep yourself motivated!

    I think it's psychological. We are often deceived by our eyes. But your arms are tired and your whole body is worked, so you do shed some weight. Maybe its the way you feel. Because your muscles are literally ripped and when they recover you feel stronger.

    I hate people that stand infront of the mirrors at the gym and pose. Self love should be kept private.

    Flexing between sets actually keeps muscles warm, blood flowing and CNS ready to contract for swole lifting.

    I do it on the sly when I go for a slash cause I like seeing how wtf I look like with a huge pump.

    Guilty as charged. It was a running joke at my old gym that I came in for the mirrors! :o:

    my guess is the day after the workout your muscle fibres are torn and would look smaller than the pumped up ones in the gym. The following day your muscle fibres start repairing and adding new fibres to your muscles, bringing you back to the same appearance or looking slightly more pumped.

    This is what I think and would have said.

    Same happens to me, I need to wait until two days after my workout to get back to, or bigger, than before the workout.
