We are back with another entry in this mini-series in which we are highlighting the importance of sleep, this time focusing on injury prevention. # Injuries are the number one factor that stop people from achieving their strength and body composition goals – if you are hurt, you can’t train and you can’t make progress. # Sleep loss has a similar effect on our brains to being drunk – it makes people overconfident and more likely to make bad decisions, ignoring possible negative outcomes. Sounds like the perfect scenario for ego lifting, which significantly increases injury risk. # The increased injury risk after not sleeping enough is well documented in the scientific literature. Different studies have shown that athletes who sleep less than 8 hours per night have an almost two-fold increase in injury risk. Furthermore, extending sleep beyond 8 hours per night decreases injury risk by 61%. # If we look at the overall picture, we can safely say that sleeping enough is crucial for having longevity in our sport and remaining injury free as much of the time as possible. # #rpstrength #rplifestyle #diet #transformation #grind #hustle #rpdiet #weightloss #fatloss #motivation #iifym #paleo #cleaneating #health #healthyeating #flexibledieting #science #girlswholift #macros #recovery #sleep #injuryprevention #science @szotaktme
