I have constant trouble sleeping. It takes me an hour often to fall asleep. And that’s despite me taking GABA before I go to sleep. It used to be less a problem, but now I try to always get a solid 8 hours and I’ll admit I’m somewhat stressed and with mood swings that probably is partly responsible, but my therapist suggested that it could be the 300mg of caffeine in Spike that I take each day before lifting. Apparently caffeine increases stress levels and stimulates you much longer than originally thought.
Anyone have thoughts or experience on this? Do you think he’s right? Is the caffeine-free Spike as good? Any other things you’d suggest instead to boost energy and focus before a workout, especially on days when I’m tired?
