Here’;s a closer look at how proper sleep can take your workouts and training to the next level.

A recent study published in the journal Sports Medicine highlights the effects of sleep loss on exercise performance. Researchers suggest that sleep loss can have a significant impact on athletic performance because it triggers autonomic nervous system imbalances. The autonomic nervous system controls breathing, heartbeat and digestionbaby pillows, so any imbalances to this system can impact athletic performance. The effects of this imbalance can cause symptoms similar to overtraining, such as an inability to sleep.

Nervous system imbalances can make it difficult for an athlete to recover after a strenuous workout or competition. A study published in the journal PLOS ONE shows a link between sleep and the immune system function. Sleep is a healing process, so anything that interferes with quality sleep can affect the immune system, which increases the risk of getting sick, and may slow recovery from injuries.

If you’;re learning a new routine or training new muscle groups, it’;s even more important to get some quality sleep between sessions to fully prepare your body and mind. The experts at the Harvard Medical School Division of Sleep Medicine report that the short-term effects of lack of sleep can increase our risk of accidents and injury.
