    Anyone sleep more after working out legs?


    I sleep about 7-8 hours, but the days after I do deads or squats I want to sleep 9-10 hours and sometimes still feel a little tired.

    Now that I think about it is true for me too. I usaully can only stay asleep for like 7 hours on any regular day and I feel good, but after a leg day I wake up after like 8 or 8.5 hours and I'm still tired. Weird...

    I've been wanting to ask this for a long time. Anyone else stay up later on squat days finding it harder to fall asleep? It's been very apparent the last few months that when I squat I end up staying up really late like 3-4 hours later than normal. I just keep eating but I cutoff carbs like every other day but I'm still wide awake. Sometimes I've stayed up all night because of it and it totally screws up my schedule. I still only sleep 8-9 hours though.
