No drills or techniques here! Today, we're going over SLEEP. We highly suggest getting that (ideal!) 8-10 hours of sleep each night, however, we understand that sometimes that isn't possible. There are a couple of things that you can do to help with those sleep deficits.
1. Tactical napping- 20-30 minute nap followed up with a quick hit of caffeine.
2. Sleep Banking- This is ideal when you know you'll be missing out on sleep soon (think time-changes or travel). To combat this, for 6 straight days, bank sleep by getting an extra two hours of sleep each night.
Give these two a shot if you are short on sleep or you know you'll be short on sleep and let us know how it goes.
At Athletes' Potential we help active adults and athletes in the Atlanta area get back to the workouts and sports they love... without surgery, stopping activities, or relying on pain medicine. Life is too short to avoid doing the things that you love.
