Sleep Your Way To Huge Muscle!

Hi Bloggers!

From we bring you another article on all the new findings on high tech and all natural fitness and muscle enhancements. Today we share a brief article on the importance of proper sleep and rest during your workout days and "off" days as well.

Never underestimate your bodies need for rest. There are studies which show that the overall body as a system becomes worn down and sluggish after prolonged periods of hard training – despite days off – and taking even as much as an entire month clean off from bodybuilding a year can help to ‘reset’ your system and produce great gains when you restart.

Some people are naturally active, and believe just because they feel OK to work out, that they should. They feel like they are almost cheating or slacking if they arent hitting the weights day in and day out. Resting is part and parcel of bodybuilding. Even the pro’s – who are as advanced as it gets, and use steroids like there is no tomorrow – who work out like machines need rest. If they didn’t get adequate rest for their bodies, they wouldn’t grow. It’s about training smart.

Try at the least to get 6-8 undisturbed hours of sleep each night. As far as resting between workouts use our basic rule of thumb: "For every workout day incorporate a rest day in between. Do not workout more than two days in a row regardless of what muscle group you are working. During rest days avoid any strenuous physical activities. If you workout two days consecutively then take the next two off and visa versa for one day of workouts.".

So why is Whey a better protein? Whey protein is a high quality protein powder from cow's milk. Milk has two proteins: Casein (approximately 80%) and Whey Protein (approximately 20%). Whey protein is more soluble than casein and also has a higher quality rating. It is often referred to as the "Gold Standard" of protein as it is the most nutritious protein available.

Why is Whey Isolate a better choice than concentrate? Yes, there may be a large difference between the two. Whey protein isolate is the most pure and concentrated form of whey protein available. It contains 90% or more protein and very little (if any) fat and lactose. Whey protein concentrate has anywhere between 29% and 89% protein depending upon the product. As the protein level in whey protein concentrate decreases the amounts of fat and/or lactose usually increase.

Whey protein is a high quality, complete protein, with all the essential amino acids. Whey protein is also the richest known source of naturally occurring branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine). These are important for active individuals, individuals who exercise and professional athletes. The body requires higher amounts of branched chain amino acids during and following exercise as they are taken up directly by the skeletal muscles versus first being metabolized through the liver, like other amino acids. Low BCAA levels contribute to fatigue and they should be replaced in one-hour or less following exercise or participation in a competitive event. Many athletes consume a BiPro beverage both before and immediately after exercise or an event to help repair and rebuild lean muscle tissue.
