We all know sleep is necessary for recovery and that somewhere in the neighborhood of 8+ hours is ideal each night.
What about post work out naps? Does an hour or two of sleep illicit the same hormonal response as a full night albeit on a smaller scale?
I train early in the morning and have a few hours afterwards before my first class. When I don’t have homework or a test to study for, I usually veg out on the couch or go back to bed.
Is pwo sleep like that beneficial at all? I’ve done some limited research (google) and can’t find much info. The key words I use always bring up the topic of sleep at night.
