Sleep Enhances Athletic Performance

Sleep Like A World Sports Champion

Hours spent in the weight room, interval training, speed training, and a well-balanced diet all affect athletic performance. But, there’s one common factor that’s often forgotten – sleep. When you consider the strain that an athlete’s body undergoes during a competition, it should come as no surprise that adequate rest is necessary for peak performance.
