Rest and recovery... R&R. Yeah, we all need it to recuperate; to re-energize; to heal, the mind and the body. Problem is, too many of us see R&R as a luxury. How many of us have skipped vacations and time away from our jobs? How many of us stay at work, running on that neverending treadmill, day after day? Good ol' R&R is perhaps the single most overlooked and least considered element of the mass building equation. But without it, you're cooked. Serious training leaves you depleted. As we've all come to understand, you're only as good as you can recover. Nutrition plays a critical role in accelerating healing, sure. But with the crushing stresses of heavy iron and the toxic environment that surrounds us in this crazy world, eating and supplementing right only goes so far. So what are you missing? Easy. . .
Sleep. If you can't sleep properly and maximize the recuperation opportunities that come with your down time, you'll never build the physique you desire. Period. You can train like a maniac, but the growth you seek happens outside the gym. Sleep time, put quite simply, equals growth time. With the busiest of schedules strained by work, family, training and commuting - the first thing to get cast to the side is adequate sleep. And without adequate R&R, you won't reach your full potential.
Few of us reside in a perfect world, living a utopian existence simply predicated on optimizing our growth as bodybuilders. Our resources, be they monetary or time-related, are finite. For the busiest among us, we must manage our time to in all things get the best bang for our hard-earned buck. This is the case when it comes to muscle recovery. If all we can manage to allot for is six hours of sleep, bet your ass it needs to be the best six hours humanly possible. If quantity can't always be within grasp, our quest for quality must take on even greater significance.
It was in the pursuit for optimizing rest to promote maximum recovery that the hard training fellas in Animal R&D decided to push the envelope, searching for any void in what is the most hardcore and comprehensive line in the game. What did they come up with? Only the most complete, ideal nighttime recovery supplement, something to lend that elusive edge to the most serious brothers in the game - those that regularly toe that fine line between training intensity and insanity. For them, there is Animal PM.
