Don't Forget About Recovery Work
Heavy lifting, compound exercises, and cardio will definitely tire you out, which is why it's important to do recovery work. Instead of going hard 24/7, be sure to implement yoga and stretching in your weekly workout schedule. Don't forget about getting enough sleep every night. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults should get a minimum of seven hours of sleep per night.
Heather explained that the tiny tears that occur while lifting weights get repaired when you sleep. So in order to improve your muscle quality, health, and strength, you've got to rest!
