The better, and faster, we recover, the sooner we can continue to train. And, we recover when we sleep, particularly when we experience “deep” sleep. That’s when the muscles are repaired.
The above video highlighted several sleep positions that have interfered with my sleep. For the past week, I made a simple adjustment to ensure I sleep either on my back or side. I put a pillow at my side under the covers. The pillow stopped any turning onto my stomach, and provided support for my leg when on my site.
The result is remarkable. I awake without neck or back soreness. And, I sleep longer, and more soundly averaging 9:20 hours of sleep per night, with 4:22 hours of “deep” sleep.
Are you getting the sleep you need?
