Sleeping, simple enough right? Let’s think about it.
-You walk into the gym
-Set up your 1RM
-Stare at the barbell
You wouldn’t call this an effective training session right?
But you do this with your sleep. You just sort of lay down and hope you fall asleep rest well.
WE HAVE TO BE AS INTENTIONAL WITH YOUR SLEEP AS YOU ARE WHEN YOU TRAIN.
So what can you do?
It’s all about routine:
1. Pick a REGULAR TIME that you go to bed and wake up. Yep, even on the weekend.
2. No T.V. in your room. You don’t need the noise.
3. Make a stick to a “wind down” routine. Read a book, do a crossword puzzle, or meditate.
4. Limit day time naps.
5. Don’t eat gut irritating foods 2-4 hours before bed.
As you work on improving your sleep you will see the benefits in your daily life and training.
SLEEP IS QUANTITY & QUALITY
