1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Weakness of muscles due to stopping physical activity takes several months .
You can become deconditioned very quickly with muscle loss when hospitalized or fighting of physical illness that requires bed rest. A few weeks off does not affect you and it is important for your body to rest.
