This Post Will Put you to Sleep

Back in the day when Michael Phelps was crushing his competition in pretty much all Olympic events taking place in a swimming pool, I ran across an article detailing his training regimen. One of the things that stuck out to me the most was that he slept a total of 11 hours a day.


11 hours. I’m pretty sure I read somewhere else that the average American gets 6 hours of sleep, which means you are probably several hours of sleep away from sleeping like an athlete.


Pole is no different from any other sport in this respect. You will be a better, happier, more coordinated, more lusciously beautiful performer if you sleep more. If you are placing more demands on your body, you need more calories and more sleep to help yourself recover.
