With depriving my sleep, my gains from last week barely made any impact on my gains. The worst part of depriving my sleep was it effectively messed up everything about my progress. My mind was nowhere near as fresh, my frustration tolerances were much lower, and the biggest impacting factor… I was not eating properly to fuel muscle tissue repair. Over this past weekend I tried my best to kick myself back into proper sleep and eating, but it wouldn’t be until today that I would finally get enough sleep to get my body back into track.
With finally giving my body the nourishing sleep it deserves, I feel the tissue healing and much less soreness. I am glad to have gotten more sleep today rather than hit the gym and half-ass my progress or produce additional soreness. I just need to get back into high gear and then I’ll be seeing my gains again.
