Sleep Beats Lifting, Study Suggest

Modern life is so packed with career and family obligations that it’s possible, even likely, that we can be over-scheduled and sleep-deprived and still not have time to train. When a few precious hours are freed up, should you get some sleep or head to the gym? A stack of research votes for hitting the sack rather than the weights. A study conducted by the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the State University of New York, Buffalo, showed that lack of sleep can increase insulin resistance. Scientists from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School published a study that detailed how sleep deprivation increases inflammation and the risk of metabolic syndrome diseases. Finally, the journal Experimental Brain Research shared findings that postural control and stability is compromised when you are behind in your sleep. That means if you show up to the gym yawning and you try to squat, row, overhead press, or lunge, you might have wished you stayed in bed.
