You have worked really hard so far. You consistently tried to increase your goals at Bench press. You never skipped those pain giving push ups and then a week came when you did not feel like going to Gym. What would happen then? The answer for the above mentioned question lies in itself. How fast your body falls out of shape totally depends on how long you kept it away from the fitness center. James Ting, M.D., a board certified physician with Hoag Orthopedic Institute of Irvine, CA once told that your overall fitness and the kind of workout you are missing will also impact your losses.
Do not glue your butt to your favorite couch while you are taking a break from the exercises. May be you can continue the running or some simple workouts that keep your muscles engaged. An immediate break is always harmful. It may be as short as a few days. However, more than that, may lead to a loss in previous weight gain. Moreover, few days off can also improve your mental fitness. Your body and mind both needs some time to recover from the consistent workouts.
