I go to the gym after work go home shower and sleep, is this good?
I go to the gym late at night and as soon as I get home I go to bed. I know that its better to go to the gym in the morning but I cant. I always thought that if I workout and sleep right after my muscles will be nice and recovered in the morning. What do you guys think?
i was always told its better to work out in the am to let muscles grow and recover during the day. When I used to work swing shift the only shift I could seem to get a workout on is right after 2nd shift then sleep like you but it didn't seem to recover as fast on days that I can workout in the am. I look at it as get the workouts in whenever you can just give your body time to adjust and recover to the next workout.
I would personally agree with that... if you cant work out in the morning, you cant. Simple as that. I personally train super hard sometimes in the gym, so working out in the morning would throw off my entire work day, especially if i had to do any lifting and such.
I think as long as your taking a protein shake PWO and are getting 7-9 hours of sleep you should be good. You could also add in some L-Glutamine powder, as ive heard that it helps speed up muscle recovery.
