Re: Napping after a workout

Mike Mahler talks a lot about naps right after workouts and the positive effect they have on hormones- I think it was growth hormone in particular?

Re: Napping after a workout

I love my nanny naps - had a good 2hr one after doing Fran this morning - and i do believe it does help with recovery etc - I usually have a boiled egg or small steak then nap - I also don't eat pre workout but drinks a 1.5lt bottle of H2O when finished
You have to discipline yourself, and through this discipline will come some level of achievement, and from this achievement will come your pride.
