How Sleep Improves Lean Muscle Mass
If you want to feel and perform your best, you probably already know it’s important to fuel your activities with quality food and be consistent with your workouts throughout the week. Whether you train at the beginning of your day or at the end, you’ve made your fitness goals are a priority – but what about your sleep goals? If your fitness goals don’t incorporate a healthy sleep routine, you are doing yourself and your hard work at the gym a disservice. Recovery builds lean muscles and sleep is the best recovery.
The problem in today’s busy society is that sleep does not receive the credit it deserves and is often put on the back burner. It’s seen as a waste of time rather than a vital process to embrace. Over thirty percent of Americans are sleep deprived and are not sleeping the recommended seven to eight hours per night. This, in turn, is leading to a host of health problems. A healthy sleep regime is foundational to your overall health and fitness goals as it gives the body the chance to preserve energy, recover, and repair, as well as time to develop, muscles worked during gym sessions.
