This may have been discussed to death if so I apologize for not being a more skillful searcher.
After a weightraining session , how soon do the muscles begin to grow and when does growth stop? From what I have read optimal growth may occur during sleep because of growth hormone release, but I would imagine growth would also occur during the day assuming adequate stimulus and nutrition.
There has to be some parameter where growth can be kept at a maxmimal rate, even if it superficially appears to be overtraining. I would imagine there may some variety from person to person, but has anyone come across any scientific studies or research?
