Increase Client’s Muscle Development by Encouraging Restful Sleep

Woman lying in bedYou maximize your client’s time at the gym to help them reach their muscle-building goals and you teach them the importance of including a variety of exercises, switching up routines, teaching them proper nutrition. All of the bases should be covered, yet without a solid sleep schedule, they only see smaller results.

As a fitness trainer, your well-rounded approach toward your client’s muscle gain is key, so don’t let your job stop when they walk out the door. Muscle growth and repair occurs during rest and sleep. This critical component of a health and fitness program can make or break your client’s success. If your client is not getting a full night of sleep, they are not fully recovered for the next workout session. A tired body and overworked muscle tissue can lead to strains and tears that can damage the body.

The goal is to teach your client how to achieve the deepest level of sleep so that their brain and body are at a completely relaxed state. This is where muscle repair and growth occur. Sleep is divided into two stages: REM and Non-REM. REM sleep is the most beneficial and deepest state. If you have a discussion with your client and discover sleep difficulties, suggest a supplement to help them enter a deeper, more restful state. Seditol® is a plant-based sleep-boosting supplement that contains Magnolia officinalis bark and Ziziphus spinosa seed.

According to the November 2012 issue of Neuropharmacology, the bark of magnolia officinalis has been shown to increase the number of REM cycles. This natural way to improve your client’s sleeping habits may be just the push needed to break through a workout plateau.

Educate your client on the value of important sleep and ways to enhance a night’s rest. For example, use the following sleep tips to create a greater muscle-boosting sleep:

  • Eat a pre-sleep, protein-rich snack of approximately 40g to enhance muscle building
  • Keep the bedroom reserved for sleep and avoid watching television or working on a computer in bed
  • Soak in a warm bath to calm the mind and the body
  • Follow the same nightly routine every day to prepare your mind and body for rest
  • Avoid exercising late in the evening
  • Set the bedroom temperature slightly cooler than the rest of the house

Your goal as a fitness trainer is to help your client succeed. This includes providing information on proper sleep habits to enhance their muscular growth.
