πŸ‘ŸπŸ’ͺ HOW TO GET QUALITY SLEEP AFTER EVENING TRAINING

Sleep is king πŸ‘‘ and the absolute best recovery tool you have, but if you’re like me and often train in the evening, then there’s a good chance your sleep that night will be all over the show.

EXERCISE is a form of STRESS, and when we ask our bodies to jump higher, run faster and lift heavy things a cocktail of stress chemicals (e.g., adrenalin, cortisol) is pumped around the body so we can do what we need to do.

However, jacking your stress response 2-4 hours before bedtime is not a great ingredient for quality sleep, so to minimise the impact post-training you need tools that shift your mind and body from fight/flight/freeze (sympathetic) to rest/digest (parasympathetic).

You can find a simple breathing protocol on my website (HERE) that does just this. It gets more potent with practice, and personally, I can go from very wired/alert to dozing on the floor in 10-20 minutes.
