1st full week of no gym!
I don't know about you guys but this week my anxiety has been high and spent hours every day on social media.

Building muscle is a process of stimulation - overload - recovery - growth. We stimulate the muscles by performing an exercise that targets that area. Studies show that a rep range of 6-12 repetitions will benefit us best when building muscle is our goal.

Recent studies suggest the best time to train is early evening, between 5pm-7pm. Studies support this with research showing our bodies are naturally warmer and testosterone levels are higher at this time of day.
But does this work for you?
For some people this is perfect and is their preferred training time. For me, No, I'm taking classes and personal training sessions. Does this stop me from getting a good workout or achieving great results? Definitely not!
