Do you find yourself struggling to make the gainz that you want even though you’re training your butt off?! I have one question for you- how well are you recovering?
If you are not taking the right steps to recover from your awesome workouts then you will find it extremely difficult to make the gainz that you want to see.
Our bodies take a beating when we workout so we have to turn around and treat them well! Here are a few ways you can accomplish this:
1. Rest Days
Sometimes the last thing we want to do is take a day off of working out, especially when we feel great. A rest day lets your body recover from all the hard work you put in at the gym. It allows you to mentally and physically recover. So, once a week take a day and chill!
2. Drink Water
Ideally we would all drink at minimum half our bodyweight in ounces of water daily! And even more ideally we’d drink a bit more than that daily. As humans we need water to live but we also need it to recover and get gainz! Buy yourself a big water bottle (I like my 64oz bottle) and make it your goal to finish it before bed everyday.
Speaking of going to bed, how much sleep do you get a night? Sleep is the time our muscles use to heal and grow stronger. Without enough sleep we cannot function mentally and physically to the level that we need to make gainz. Try getting an extra hour or even 30 minutes of sleep every night for a week and see what a difference sleep can make.
P.S.- If you struggle staying asleep try taking some magnesium before bed!
So give these tips a try and see if you can hop back on the gainz train!!
