Training Competitive Athletes with Mike Lee
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but sleep is vital to your recovery. Without great recovery practices, you will be unable to perform any task well.
“The one lifestyle piece that athletes have to do right now is sleep. Sleep is such a major characteristic for recovery. When we’re doing lots of intensity, and we’re doing things that are really hard in training, the last thing we cannot do is not sleep throughout the night. Major emphasis and focus needs to be put on sleeping throughout the entire night, sleeping in a dark room, making sure the temperature is right, so you have that restful sleep. We can come back the next day or the following day and continue to build that intensity. Sleep is definitely the number one thing.”
