It’s also important to get enough protein in your diet. Experts recommend that 10% to 35% of our daily caloric intake comes from protein, while other studies suggest a high-protein snack within 2 hours of working out, as it will help the body recover faster from exercise.

Don’t forget to include rest days in your workout schedule, as your body needs to recover, ultimately helping you gain strength and muscle size. This also includes getting more sleep, and while this might be a challenge at first, there are different options to achieve a full-night sleep and well-deserved rest, including melatonin supplements, a relaxing skincare routine, and even a Silk mask from DROWSY for some extra comfy sleep.
