“You give your body the chance to repair, recharge and grow during your sleep, it’s the perfect time to fill up on nutrients and since your body doesn’t move, it allows the muscles to repair.”
In addition to inhibiting growth hormone production, which increases during deep sleep, lack of sleep can decrease your energy, alert level, weaken the immune system and make you more distracted.
How long do you have to sleep? There is no rule. Try to sleep seven to eight hours a night. Despite some sleep problems like sleep whose detection requires a polysomnograph, others can be corrected thanks to simple tricks like those that follow…
1. Do not train for a short time before you go to bed
Yes, training can help you fall asleep and improve your sleep. However, going to the room shortly before bedtime can increase your body temperature and make your mind work, which prevents you from sleeping. Certainly, you are very busy and you must surely try to cram a workout as you can, but try to train at most three to four hours before you go to bed if you have problems with insomnia. This will leave time to your body’s temperature to drop.
