Recovery And How Important Is It? (Sleep And Days Off Between Workouts)



Recovery And How Important Is It? (Sleep And Days Off Between Workouts)

If intensity is fifty percent of your ultimate HIT results, the other fifty percent is rest and recovery. Some HIT theorists have the balance weighted even further in the direction of rest and recovery to the tune of 75 / 25. No matter how you slice the bread a proper attention to rest and recovery is absolutely vital to your bodybuilding success.

The Importance of Rest Days

HIT philosophy and broader training science both share the opinion you need in the neighborhood of 72 hours of rest between training sessions for each of your body parts for them to be fully recovered. Depending on your own genetics, age and diet you could need even more than this.

Does this mean if you train more often that you won’t see results? No, of course not.

What it does mean is that you won’t be able to train with maximum intensity if you skip rest days. This is impossible to do because you aren’t fully recovered. On top of this you will also not be training in an optimal training environment – where your body grows with the least amount of effort. This is something most of us aspire towards with HIT training. Getting the best results out of the shortest amount of time spent in the gym! After years, it’s liberating not spending twenty hours a week at the gym – while getting even better results – believe me!

Sleep and Build Muscle

Even among HIT enthusiasts sometimes the effort to get enough quality sleep is brushed aside and neglected. When you pay attention to your recovery days and combine that with making the most of your sleep you have created the perfect environment to build muscle, so don’t make that mistake. These tips could help!

Sleep and Build Muscle

Even among HIT enthusiasts sometimes the effort to get enough quality sleep is brushed aside and neglected. When you pay attention to your recovery days and combine that with making the most of your sleep you have created the perfect environment to build muscle, so don’t make that mistake.

These tips could help!

* Get in at Least Eight Hours of Sleep. Eight hours of solid sleep is really the minimum you need when training heavy and intense. If your lifestyle permits, the closer you can get to ten hours of sleep after hardcore workouts the better. Consider sleeping a second body building
session if you must because you won’t achieve your goals without it!

* Try to Sleep without Interruption. Broken sleep is not ideal. Turn off the television and let friends and family know you are in training and to only wake you in an emergency. It may take a reminder or two, but eventually they’ll get used to your more disciplined sleep schedule.

* Consider Sleep Aide Supplements. If you really need help getting in your rest don’t fall into the trap of taking potentially dangerous prescription drugs. These can be addictive and can even cause you to pack on body fat! A better solution? Melatonin, kava kava and Valerian root all can all work wonders towards fighting insomnia. It’s a bit beyond the scope of our Guide to dig into specific issues, but they are generally safe and inexpensive. If you need to, do your research and consider adding one (or all) to your own diet program.

It takes a bit of self-discipline to master the winning art of total intensity when training and total relaxation when recovering. With a little practice I have no doubt you can do it. Big rewards await!
