Many clients are worried about what supplements to take when they’re forgetting the most important factor after putting the hard graft in the gym; which is SLEEP!⁣

Sleep has several benefits such as improved mood and cognition, reduced stress, improving hormonal levels, RECOVERING better.⁣

If you’re serious about athletic performance and general well-being then you need to start prioritising your sleep. Here are a few things that have been proven to increase quality and quantity of sleep:⁣

1️⃣ CBD - Lot’s of research has been published on CBD’s benefits for improving sleep, anxiety and much more.⁣

2️⃣ Blue light blocking glasses - Blue light emitted from screens at night will disrupt your sleep/circadian rhythm.⁣

3️⃣ Routine - Falling asleep at similar times helps your body get into routine, your body will thank you for it.⁣

4️⃣ Magnesium glycinate - Helps calm your nervous system prior to sleep.⁣

5️⃣ Avoid eating late - Allows your body to concentrate on getting ready for bed rather than digesting large amounts of food.⁣

6️⃣ Reducing caffeine intake - Careful on timing of caffeine ingestion as it has a half-life of 3-5 hours, which will keep you up at night if taken in the evenings.⁣

Flexibility - the ability for a muscle/joint to lengthen passively.⁣

Mobility - the ability for a muscle/joint to move actively through a range of motion.⁣


It’s all good being flexibile, however if you can’t drive any force from those ‘flexible’ positions, then essentially it’s a useless range of motion.⁣
