Muscle Recovery When You Sleep

Filed Under: Sports Nutrition at 5:09 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak
Leg musclesWorking out in the early hours is tough. We have to admire people waking up before the sun is out to hit the gym, getting the workout done, taking a shower and then going to work.

The majority of people prefer to workout at night, after work or even late hours, schedule permitting.

People playing sports face the same problem, as all the recreational activity is after the sunset in weeknights.

Several sports supplements are helpful products, boosting energy levels and promoting muscle recovery. However, some people are sensitive to caffeine and, if working out at night, may not be able to get a good night of sleep after taking the product.

If that’s your case, look for caffeine-free sport supplements, still providing enough minerals and amino-acids. Several companies are also adding creatine, often taken by athletes, for those wishing to gain muscle mass but also helping with one of the most common problems after exercising: fatigue.

Muscle fatigue from extreme exercise may cause injuries and may be responsible for an overall exhaustion of the whole body. Your muscles have limits and you may feel muscle weakness when your physical activity is too intense.

A good “night time” supplement may prevent this problem, recovering muscles as you sleep, minimizing possible setbacks and avoiding sore muscles the next morning.

Everyone has a different system, diet and exercise program. Some people may not need to take a supplement everyday or may not need to take the full dosage. A little help won’t hurt you; in fact, it may prevent you from getting hurt.

    If you are using a muscle-building workout routine, taking an HGH-stimulating supplement is a good idea, too. The majority of our HGH is produced during sleep, and taking a supplement 30min before bedtime is a good way to boost that production.

    I used to workout exclusively in the early morning. For years!! No matter how much I warmed up, it was insufficient. I have never tried these supplements to help in this case, but I can say that, if you overdo it, arnica is a lifesaver!
