We all know sleep is important. Sleep is essential for our bodies to function properly and just as important as eating healthy and exercising. When you sleep, your brain signals your body to release hormones and compounds that help decrease the risk for health conditions, manage your hunger levels, maintain proper immune function and retain memory. But, did you know your sleep could be affecting your fitness goals and your gains in the gym?
It’s a well known fact that writing your goals out and making a plan increases your ability to achieve them. This same outline can be applied to your physical fitness and exercise goals. Whether you are training for a physique contest, building strength for powerlifting, or just trying to get back into your favorite clothes. Planning your workouts out and sticking with your plan can really maximize your results. Seeing these results first hand is added fuel to your fire to keep you pushing forward and keep you chasing after your goals!
