Sleeping After a Workout

As Abu Dhabi’s go to place for information on Abu Dhabi’s Personal Trainers we here at abudhabipersonaltrainers.ae receive lots and lots of questions about all things health and fitness. One question of late that has continued to pop up is people seeking advice on post workout sleeping issues so below are a couple of suggestions from our experts.

  •  Do NOT consume any caffeine based products before your session. I suggest at least 3-4 hours before.
  •  Cortisol (natural based steroid hormone) AKA the ‘stress hormone’ can sometimes negatively effect sleep. This hormone can be ‘blunted’ by staying well hydrated
  • Take a slightly longer hot bath/shower than usual before you head to bed
  • Try drinking chamomile tea before bed
