Everyone says to rest and recover in order to gain strength and mass, but what exactly is "proper rest and recovery?"

The things I do right now are take long hot showers and make sure to sleep at least 8 hours a night. I know diet also contributes to recovery, but how?

Here is some reading on the subject. If you don't read it and pay attention you wasted my time and everyone elses.

Cool, not quite certain why I jumped ugly on you. Nutrition plays a huge role in training and recovery.
