# Muscle growth
best sleeping positions to optimize your muscle growth
Sleep helps our body repair and is particularly needed after a workout session. Your sleeping posture can impact your sleep quality and, in turn, your muscle growth. Sleeping on the back is the best sleep posture for muscle growth. Ensure that your head is facing the ceiling and your knee is supported with a pillow. Fill any gaps between your body and the mattress with pillows for additional support. This posture will optimize your sleep quality, meaning that your body and muscles will repair better.
