Post workout nap
I work in the defence force and have had 3 weeks off to return home for a break. I have been trialling a training/nutrition regime which would not usually be possible if I were working. I have been hitting the gym at the crack of dawn on an empty stomach, and working the major muscle groups with the main lifts. Once my sessions over I have a post workout shake with fast digesting carbs (maltodextrin),i then head home and about half hour after the end of my workout I have a high protein and slow digesting carb breakfast, typically oatmeal,fruit and whey mixed together or eggs whites and oatmeal. I then go straight to sleep for an hour and a half. Upon waking up a will consume a smaller high protein meal,usually a steak, egg whites or chicken breast. I will then usually go on to train a smaller muscle group later in the afternoon as part of a two a day regime. I've only been doing his for 2 weeks, and once I go back to work i obviously can't continue this training regime but I feel like I am getting good results,with greater energy throughout the day an a quicker recovery turnaround. Just interested to here some thoughts on this regime and maybe any science behind napping directly after a workout.eg,possible impact on recovery..ill also add that my current goals are to add muscle while keeping my body fat stable,currently about 8-9% as pursuing a bulking/cutting cycle is not something i like to do...
