He wrote, “I believe to build muscle you need to workout with intensity and training to fail but if you don’t get proper sleep and you don’t give your body parts enough Time for recovery you will not build muscle.”

He continues to explain how even if you have had a really intense workout for hours in the gym but fail to give your body 7 to 8 hours of sound sleep, the entire workout becomes ineffective. He said, “If you want to grow, you need to rest; that’s when your muscles grow. Muscles don’t grow when you’re lifting heavy, that’s when they break down.”

It is the same with legs. He finally says, “So the key to muscle growth is to make sure you let your muscle recover, and you need proper sleep and letting a muscle recover.”
