How Much Can One Night of No Sleep Affect Your Workout?

May 11, 2015 2 min read

We've seen professional athletes follow some pretty strict schedules, especially when it comes to pre-game sleep. So just how much can it affect our workout if we skip out on a a good nights rest?

How Much Sleep Do We Need

Science says we generally do our best on 7 and a quarter hours of sleep per night. That being said, the lucky sleepers of the world may need just five hours while other may need up to nine hours. Fact is, everyone's rest needs are different and genetics play a big role in determining that sweet sleep spot.

Acute Sleep Loss

Here's the good news: Your body is designed to absolve one night of inadequate sleep. On a single night of lost sleep, you won't necessarily feel good the next day, but you'll live. Fitness wise, your performance shouldn't suffer too much.

Chronic Sleep Loss

If you're overworked, or can't shut your mind off at night, you could start to accumulate sleep debt that will be hard to rebound from. Over time, a lack of sleep could start to seriously wage war on your body - and your fitness levels.

Chronic sleep loss can lead to blood pressure increase, blood sugar levels become worse and risks of heart-related issues.

Play Catch-Up

If you're not sleeping like you usually do, start making up your deficit with short rests each day. If you're able to, take a mid-afternoon nap, but for no more than 45 minutes.

Regardless of how bad of a sleep you had, try to always wake up at the same time each day. If you must hit the snooze, sleep in no later than an hour.
