Sleep & Recovery Resources + Sources

Accorrding to Raman K. Malhotra, Associate professor of Neurology explained in his Journal study “Sleep, Recovery, and Performance in sports” that poor sleep can lead to decreases in performance and recovery for athletes. The article explains how sleep disorders and symptoms are commonly seen in athletes, and may be unrecognized. It is important to educate athletes on adequate duration, quality, and timing of sleep. Some rest interventions mentioned and discussed include changes to practice times or careful planning for sleep and recovery habits. It is important to screen and treat sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and insomnia in individuals who engage in fitness and athletes. As a personal trainer, this topic is so important because the majority of athletes and fitness professionals have a challenging time making time to sleep and allow the body to recover mentally as well as physically.
