5 reasons sleep is important to your bodybuilding routine. You’re not afraid of the dark are you?

I’m going to give you  my top 5 reasons for why sleep is important to both your diet and exercise as well as your overall health!

Take that for what it is. A step forward. You did something, when you could have been doing absolutely nothing, you got a result (Even if its not THE result you wanted) and it was a positive one at that.
