It takes just one night of poor sleep to trigger loss of muscle!
A study by Uppsala University in Sweden found that after a single sleepless night, muscles show signs of protein breakdown. That’s why you go like jelly after a party weekend!
The good news is that you must listen to your body and rest when it says rest from the gym, do exactly that. As research has also found that having a mental break from the gym or from your work could help you to nod off. Maybe mid-week dinner with a friend is not so inconvenient after all or a mid-week sofa sesh with all your favorite magazines?
