Tired of waiting around in the gym for the right weights to be free? New research form the US means you can make gym queues like this a thing of the past, as it proves that you can build muscle just as fast using lighter weights. Traditional exercise wisdom says that the quickest way to build big muscles is to lift as heavy as possible. However, the new study shows you can get equally impressive results from going lighter but performing more repetitions. The only condition is that you must do all your sets to failure. So, next time your preferred dumbbells are taken, just switch down and up your reps. You'll be out of the gym that much quicker and still see the growth you're looking for.
Post-Workout Performance After you perform a hard workout session, it's important to supply the body with the nutrients it needs to repair those torn tissues and build them up. Protein powder is one of the best ways to do this.* Since protein powder digests quickly in the body, downing a shake immediately after your workout can jumpstart that recovery process.*
