Additionally, many athletes find daytime nap further increases their body's ability to build muscle. Don't over-stress or over-exhaust yourself and have a proper sleep and diet, use healthy diet supplements and avoid alcohol, sedatives, drugs and smoking. Pregnant women and mothers who are engaged in breast-feeding must NOT do heavy workouts.
