Light and Sleep

Just to let you guys know, I will be bringing my rings with me for anyone who wants to attempt to get their first muscleup during training on Monday.


Here's a very well written article on how light affects our sleep cycle -

As well as some free software that automatically adjusts your computer screen's color to help diminish the effect of its light on your sleep cycle. It works pretty well!

As you all know, sleep is very important, it is what allows us to recover and reap the benefits from the hard work we put in in the gym. Getting plenty of quality sleep is important, try to shoot for 8-9 hours per night. If you don't get enough sleep, you can dip into overtraining, and no amount of work will bring you out, additional training will often actually make it worse.


Great video of the Utah Sectionals
