WHY SLEEP AFFECTS PERFORMANCE
There is only so many hours in one day, and it is a consistent topic that people try to get their heads around because we all want more hours, more time in our pockets to get what we need done. Regardless of whether you are a full-time parent, employee, athlete or businessman/woman we all want more time.
A lot of people want more sleep, definitely the people who are grinding their way to the top. They want more sleep to feel more energised in order to give more in their lives. In our case it is fitness. We want to make sure that we are getting enough rest so that we can train to a higher level and excel more.
Especially people who are currently trying to lose weight, we have to find a balance in our lives to ensure that we are fully rested, because if we are not it can have negative effects on our bodies.
A lot of people discuss the training level and effort that is needed in order to lose weight, but they forget that sleep is one of the key factors that also contributes to your goals. It is suggested that if you are in full time training that you should be sleeping between 7-10 hours an evening, depending how the rest of your lifestyle is like. If you are naturally quite active, then you may need more sleep to recover. If training is pretty much the only active thing that you do, you don’t have any other commitments like children, then you could get away with sleeping less.
"Charlie was recommended by a friend who had achieved amazing results on his program. A little skeptical about the usual internet ‘before and afters’ I gave it a try and I’m so pleased I did. I feel, look and train better than ever before.
Charlie is an awesome coach and genuinely cares about getting you to reach your goals. He’s on hand whenever you need him and pushes you to keep going when you’re feeling down.
I’m on my second phase now and will continue to work with Charlie to push myself and see what I can achieve! If you’re thinking about giving it a go I highly recommend it. If you put the work in the results come...along with a bowl of coco pops" Matt from the UK
Tons of people, oddly enough successful people are the ones that are telling you to not get sleep. Though for some of the time it is very much true, if you’d like to really excel in life and not just for weight loss that you may have to give up things like sleeping to achieve it. But over the longer course of your life, you cannot keep that up. We are designed to sleep, that is how we best recover. It isn’t meditation or salt baths or keeping our energy level up with an endless supply of caffeine. The best way is getting your head down pushing towards your goals when you are awake, and then really shutting off at night to recover.
So what are the benefits to getting more sleep, let’s check it out.
Overall, as much as making sure you are eating the right food, working out correctly and doing everything you have been told to do. Please do not neglect sleep, as that is one factor that is just as important as the rest of them.
