Number One Performance Enhancer!

Sleep

Let’s be clear out the gate. Sleep is the Number 1 performance-enhancing activity that we can do for EVERYTHING we do. Regardless of your training program or how hard you push yourself if you aren’t recovering as well as you could then you simply aren’t going to perform to your max potential.

Now, I hear you already saying either “I work fine on 5-6 hours so don’t tell me to get 8” or “I’m too busy to get 8 hours”.

Ok, let’s deal with the I am fine with “Insert number” hours gang first. The best description of this I’ve heard is “this is a testament to human resiliency and determination more than it is to human performance”. No question, you WILL perform BETTER on more and better quality sleep. Guaranteed.

Now for the “I don’t have time” crew. Ok, I reckon there may be a few of you out there who this MAY apply to, but for most, you’re lying to yourself. Stop watching TV and go to bed. Whatever it is that you are filling your evenings with you are making a CHOICE to not get 8 hours of sleep. IF you are that very very small minority (I’m talking newborn baby, or work a million jobs minority) who genuinely cannot get 8 hours then let’s make the 6 hours you do get the best possible quality.
