Sleep, a key for those dream Muscles!

Yes, you heard that right! Research shows how sleep is most imperative to build muscles. So don’t compromise on that much needed time in bed. It efficiently helps recover worn out muscles and even gain strength and achieve that dream size. It is popularly said- “Muscles are torn in the gym, fed in the kitchen and built in bed”

The latest supplement, a nutrition programme and a gruelling workout regimen will not guarantee the desired results, if not followed by sufficient sleep.

In deep sleep cycles, your body muscles relax and the natural growth hormone (HGH) is produced. So don't forget to follow good and healthy sleeping habits. Choose the best mattress that helps you rest easy because it relaxes your muscles and helps you get a good night's sleep.

Energy consumption is lowered as we sleep, allowing us to use the high-quality food we eat during the day to build muscle more efficiently. Muscular recovery and regeneration is improved when growth hormone is released. The brain also recharges while we sleep. For building muscles this is important because a rested brain is a focused and motivated brain. When you sleep, to put it simply, you recover, and when you recover you repair, replace, and rebuild, and for optimal results all of this are essential.

Repairing of Muscle and Other Tissues, Replacing of aging and dead cells

Fasting and sleeping for a long duration at night is similar and this is essential for muscle growth. However, if you eat just before you this this process will be reversed, and protein synthesis increases in the gastrointestinal tract instead of the muscles. Hence make sure to eat at least two hours before bedtime.

During this time of starvation muscle is actually broken down to provide our stomach with amino acids. To offset this eating before you sleep at night is vital.  

When you sleep human growth hormone is also released. In men more than half of daily human growth hormone secretion happens throughout the deepest sleep cycles, which happens during early sleep. Without proper sleep human growth hormone levels will be negatively impacted. Make sure to sleep latest by 11pm and for at least eight hours.

The body is able to refurbish bones, organs, and tissue; circulate human growth hormone; and replenish immune cells during REM (Rapid Eye Movement: explained later) sleep. On physical well being and muscle growth sleep has a profound effect.

So next time you are heaving and hoeing in the gym, remember to catch up on that extra bit of sleep your body has been craving of late!
