So I’m well-versed in the necessity of sleep to T-levels, cortisol, insulin, etc. etc. etc. my issue is that I work a lot of overnights on EMS and in the Emergency Room. I find plenty of time to squeeze in workouts and I’m not overly focused on hypertrophy (as a rugby player I’m 6’2", 240 lbs at my position which is ideal size.) However, I want to work on strength and overall athleticism which I know requires sleep. I’m wondering if
- Anyone has any advice as to how they work overnights and still get healthy sleep
- Anyone can point me toward research and the timing of sleep
- Research regarding sleep and sports performance in general
I’m familiar w/ sleep cycles etc, take ZMA when I can, I just generally want to see what anyone else has to say.
