Most of us experience muscle fatigue, but why do our muscles get tired? First of all, Muscle fatigue is a symptom that decreases your muscles’ ability to perform over time due to exhaustion. It is where the body gives up due to a power overload.
There are generally 2 types of muscle fatigues:
1. Acute fatigue a.k.a exercise induced fatigue - it often occurs during daily activities.
2. Overtraining fatigue, happens when there is an imbalance between training and recovery.
How do we combat muscle fatigue?
Creatine acts as an antioxidant, improving mitochondrial activity, increasing athletic performance and delaying muscle fatigue. The ultimate add-on for improving strength, strength, and overall workload, improving performance and delaying fatigue.
Your muscles use BCAAs while exercising. This will reduce blood levels. When the blood level of BCAA decreases, the concentration of tryptophan, an essential amino acid in the brain increases. Your brain converts tryptophan to serotonin. Serotonin is a chemical in the brain that is thought to contribute to the development of fatigue during exercise.
Sleep, rest and proper nutrition are all important to reduce muscle fatigue. Lack of sleep leads to reduced protein synthesis, which reduces the body's ability to recover from muscle damage. Without proper recovery, muscle growth is impeded and exercise stress remains high. And, of course, without proper nutrition (especially protein intake), energy levels drop and muscles begin to weaken.
