Is there such thing as muscle memory?
If it took someone roughly 2-3 years to gain about 40 lbs of muscle and then they lost it all after an injury, how long would it take for them to get back to where they were. Not surpass it but just get back what they had before the injury. Would the same length of time be required or would it be gained at a quicker rate?
I know that a specific amount of muscle when someone first starts working out is gained neurally(the signal from the brain to the muscle) before any increase in muscle size. I'm hoping the body can remember what it once was!
Whats your guys' thoughts on this?

It's hard to say how fast it'll come in a given scenario, but it does come more quickly.
Try this thread for a bit more on muscle memory:
What is behind Muscle Memory?
In Africa, every morning a gazelle awakens knowing that it must outrun the fast lion if it wants to stay alive.
Every morning a lion wakes up knowing that it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It makes no difference whether you are a lion or a gazelle - when the sun comes up, you better be running!

my arm was so small i thought id never get back in shape.
i also got spinal meningitis and just about didnt make it.
