I've been having a hard time with sleep recently. What tips, tricks, secrets and strategies would you fine gentlefolk recommend for when quality sleep is hard to come by?
Thanks for the PDF! This could be really useful as it seems I'm having to do something of a balancing act between the mental health boost and the physical repercussions of training almost daily. I'll be interested to see what sort of numbers these formulae will yield.I've had success with melatonin and GABA. I've also found that if I drink coffee regular enough it helps me be less sensitive to simulants that would otherwise keep me awake. Also, if I train too late in the day it keeps me up; if I train in the morning I sleep better.
Couldn't say if it's your volume or not depending on what % those loads are for you. Maybe try calculating your sessions using intensity number of lifts (INOL) to see where you're at daily and weekly. Attached is a pdf if you're not familiar with INOL.
