Your Perfect Muscle-Building Day
The hour-by-hour guide to building more muscle, all day long.
1. Take a nap
Skip out on the afternoon coffee and instead opt for a mid-afternoon nap. The quick snooze will leave you feeling rejuvenated for the rest of the workday. Afternoon naps also lead to increased productivity and memory function. To make matters even better, you only need a short time (10-30 minutes) to reap all of the benefits. Can’t skip out on work for a quick sleep session? Practice meditation instead. The quiet time can help you refocus your energy and attack the rest of the day with vigor.
While the rest of your coworkers are searching for energy drinks, load yourself up with a cup of water instead. The continued focus on hydration will help to replenish fluids lost during your workout as well as maintain energy levels. It also helps with digestion and prevents cravings for the sugar-filled temptations that lurk in the kitchen cabinets.
