What Makes Muscles Grow?

by Arena Ready on November 23rd, 2015

This is a cool little video from the folks at TED-Ed that illustrates and summarizes things pretty well. Watch and enjoy! 

‚ÄčWe have over 600 muscles in our bodies that help bind us together, hold us up, and help us move. Your muscles also need your constant attention, because the way you treat them on a daily basis determines whether they will wither or grow. Jeffrey Siegel illustrates how a good mix of sleep, nutrition and exercise keep your muscles as big and strong as possible.
