After workout

The workout is over. It would seem that you can now forget about physical exercises to the next time and wait calmly for desired muscle growth or slimming. Absolutely not! Actually, it is only beginning. A zealous workout is an important, but far not the only condition to achieve the goal. Anyway, you will hardly forget the previous workout (especially if it was your first). Those, who have now remembered their first workouts, are surely know what am I talking about. Yes, it is the thing – muscle pain. If you were exhausted after the workout, first thing, that you feel in the morning: your muscles ache. Why? I will uncover a small secret for you: actually, muscles doesn’t grow because of exercises. Even more: muscle fibers get injured and broke down during the workout (this causes pain). The task of the after-workout process is to provide optimal conditions not only for your organism recovery, but also for its growth (also known as “supercompensation”).
