Study finds night workouts do not hinder sleep
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2013 -- According to new studies conducted, late-night or pre-sleep workouts are not a bad thing. In fact, it turns out that exercising in the evening is linked to better sleep overall.
For those who like a night jog or enjoy walking in the moonlight, the news simply could not be better. Night exercising works for some, and for those individuals the new advice is encouraging for the interest.
Most individuals can sleep fine after a workout, according to experts from the National Sleep Foundation, who relied upon the evidence from a growing body of research collected from a new poll taken early this year.
The 2013 Sleep in America Poll found that individuals who exercise at any point in the day report having better sleeping cycles, and those same individuals tend to feel more rested overall when compared to counterparts that do not exercise. The research also noted that those who exercise in the final four hours before their respective bedtimes report sleeping just as well as those who do so earlier in the day.
"The timing of exercise ought to be driven by when the pool's lap lane is open or when your tennis partner is available or when you have time to get away from work, not by some statement that has never been validated," says Barbara Phillips, a University of Kentucky sleep medicine specialist who worked on the poll.
Over 50% of those who partake in vigorous and moderate exercise regimens reported sleeping better on days which they exercised, even if it was near bedtime. Out of 1,000 individuals surveyed, 3% of those who did late-day workouts reported worse sleep.
