HERE ARE SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT SLEEP AND ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE:
1. Tennis star Roger Federer sleeps for 11-12 hours each night!
2. The Toronto Raptors dedicated 4 days to “sleep camp” in their pre-season training.
3. Sleep repairs your tissues and replenishes your energy stores.
4. You build muscle in your sleep!
5. If you have a good night sleep, you’ll repair your body from that day’s workout AND you’ll be able to perform better the next day.
TODAY’S EXERCISE: SLEEP DIARY
Fill in the “Sleep Diary” exercise on page 7 of your Athlete Workbook.
For the next week, keep a sleep diary. Log what you’re doing in the hours before you go to sleep and what your sleep is like that night (sleep duration, quality of sleep).
