🔹 The Zygomatic Bone is…your upper cheek bone. Very important in fitness 😂 (yeah I struggled for Z haha)
🔹 Zzz…sleep. We all know that sleep is important for many health reasons, but why in fitness in particular?
🔻 Sleep is when the growth hormone is released. You’re not going to build muscle without it.
🔻 Sleep deprivation changes your Insulin balance (the master storage hormone) which can lead to weight gain.
– Effective Insulin = fat cells remove fatty acids from the blood and prevent storage.
– Becoming Insulin resistant = lipids pump out more Insulin and stores as fat in the liver and other places.
🔻 Lack of sleep can make you more hungry due to other hormone imbalances.
🔻 Lack of concentration. You can’t hit your PB’s when you’re tired!
