The Importance Of Sleep And Recovery Time
You'll need to do 30 minutes of cardio today.
Lifting weights tears your muscles. In order for muscles to get bigger they need an adequate amount of nutrients and an adequate amount of time to repair. Without a proper amount of recovery time, your body may actually become smaller by losing muscle mass.
Workouts act as the stimulus for growth, but your body will only grow outside of the gym. Train hard, eat all of your meals, rest and get a full 8-10 hours of sleep, and your body will gain muscle mass.
This program is setup to allow adequate recovery time between all workouts.
You need at least 8 hours every night. Little sleep equals little results. You could workout all day until you couldn't move but unless your diet is on point and you're getting enough sleep and recovery, you're not going to see any results.
