SLEEP

HOW MANY OF YOU GUYS LOVE SLEEP AS MUCH AS I DO? Not only is sleep possibly one of the best things on this good Earth, but it is also the most important part of the fitness process in my opinion. Sleeping is the point in the day where your body is recuperating from all the hard work you put in, your muscle tissue that you worked so hard that day is getting repaired so the next time you use them they are stronger and faster. Your body is re-energizing making sure that when you wake up, you are ready to face the day head on. I notice in myself and in people all around me that everyone is tired all the time, and I ask myself why. I think the real reason is not enough sleep! If you ever talk to little kids and ask if they are tired, they say no and it is very apparent by their actions that they are not. You can play the “well they are young and don’t have many stresses to worry about” card, and to that I call B.S. Kids are not tired because they sleep as much as their body wants to sleep, if they sleep poorly that night, odds are they will take a nap and when they wake up from that nap they feel amazing. Gains are not only made in the gym, in fact the gym plays a much smaller role in “gains” than many people think. Gains are made outside of the gym, in the kitchen eating right, and sleeping right, allowing that recovery process to take place.
