It’s a simple formula.
The quicker you can recover from a hard training session, the harder you can train the next day, and hence perform better.
The principle works in all aspects of life. The student who rests well at night and gets his/her nutrition right will be able to study hard again the next day.

Diabetes is on the rise worldwide. It is a side effect of both our lifestyles and dietary habits. Diabetes is said to be a silent killer, in that you can have it without knowing – it can take years before the first symptoms appear, by which time damage has already begun.
