Make no mistake, achieving maximum fat loss and getting that ‘ripped’ look that you see on the cover of your favorite health and fitness magazine is a 24/7 endeavor. If you aren’t on top of the game at all times, there is a large chance you’ll falter.
One specific component that very often gets overlooked is that of sleep. No one ever thinks of sleep being a factor in success since after all - you are barely conscious while you sleep. How much damage could you really do to your progress while you are sleeping?
The answer is that it’s not what you do while you’re sleeping per se, it’s the quality and quantity of sleep you get.
- Along with diet and exercise, sleep is an important factor in fat loss.
- Lack of sleep increases Cortisol levels which hinder your fat loss.
- Sleep is the primary time to recover from training and rebuild muscle tissues.
