Sleep is critical when it comes to seeing results. Whether trying to gain muscle or losing fat, you must have sleep. When you want to see results, you must get enough rest.
6-8 hours is the best amount of sleep. When you’re not getting at least 6 hours of sleep, your body does not hit deep REM sleep allowing you to shut down and reset. If you don’t reset, your cortisol levels stay elevated. Cortisol is a hormone that your body produces under stress.
Tip: Focus on trying to plan your day so you don’t procrastinate and stay up later than you should. PLAN AHEAD!
