So I am 21 years old and have been heavy lifting for many years. I have always had sleep problems on the days that I lift. I only lift around 3 days a week (45 minutes a workout) but go balls to the wall every time. I now consistently cannot sleep every time I lift. I will go from feeling fatigued then the second I lay down to sleep, instantly I am wired again. I don't see this as over training because I don't lift too often, but it is pretty consistent.
WTF is my deal.
The most I have taken off is a week at a time for the last several years. When I am in an offweek, I oversleep 12 hours a night but when I am lifting I lay in bed for hours feeling wired. Any suggestions would be great. I like to stay away from sleep aids. Thanks
