Firstly I'll explain why many people don't see the results they crave at the gym. In order to recover from exercise whether it's weightlifting or cardiovascular activity, your sleep & nutrition have to be in check with your training regimen to see progress over time. It's also very easy to have the mentality of pushing your body to the extreme through doing too much activity leading to overtraining but I could make a whole other video about that topic! The more activity you do the more sleep you'll need in order to see muscle growth & to allow your body to fully recover before your next weightlifting session. Not only your sleep but also your nutrition plays a very big role in the whole muscle growth process. How long should you sleep for muscle growth? I will be sharing a sleep and muscle recovery study on where they compared two groups of people. One group having around 5 - 6 hours of sleep per night compared to another group getting around 8 hours of sleep a night. Watch the video throughout to find out how much muscle each group exactly gained throughout the study. Getting adequate sleep & recovery is the most optimal way on how to speed up muscle growth naturally as sleep enhances growth hormone secretion during sleep. As well as other hormones such as testosterone a key hormone that contributes to muscle growth.
