Sleep. Something we tend to sacrifice but it is arguably as important as exercising or our nutrition.
HOW MUCH DO WE NEED?

7-9 hours for most of us.

HEALTHLINE SUGGESTS THAT SLEEP IS ESSENTIAL FOR:
  • Maintaining critical body functions
  • Restore energy
  • Repair muscle tissue
  • Allow the brain to process new information
WHAT ABOUT SLEEP AND TRAINING?
  • Fewer calories are consumed during the day and as a result, achieve their body composition goals

It is suggested that a lack of sleep impacts the balance of hormones in the body that affects your appetite, therefore interfering with your body’s ability to regulate food intake correctly.

  • Sleep is essential for growth and repair from training
  • It allows the brain and body to slow down and engage in processes of recovery, promoting better physical and mental performance the next day.
  • It can improve your training performance

Sleep provides more energy, better coordination, better mental functioning and is crucial if you want to optimally perform in the gym and produce those personal bests!
Alongside this, there are lots of other key benefits to sleeping from improving memory, reducing stress, decreasing heart disease or strokes.
