If you’re taking your exercise routine seriously, you maybe finding yourself tired and sore.  There are many ways to help maintain your muscle strength including eating more protein and getting plenty of rest between workouts,

Some new research suggest that vitamin D may also help support muscle strength.  Subjects had their vitamin D measured and then exercised one leg, letting the other leg act as a control.

They found that vitamin D levels were associated with muscle weakness immediately after and days after a workout.
