Just for clarification, I'm slow sometimes you mean that he WILL be developing good muscle, not that he already is yes?
Not being difficult, just trying to understand, I can see that if he is feeling better and his meds are working his muscles may look different, but it will surely take weeks to develop muscles...
OK, just typing that makes me think.....I believe that muscles are actually built up by by the tearing and healing of fibre, well so my gym rat son tells me, so he tells me off if I work out without days off inbetween, he tells me that is when a person gets sore, you have to let the developing muscle heal a little then tear some more.
I totally understand him having to move so his meds work, I totally get trying to free him up and get him looser moving, but wouldn't muscle building as such come later on?
