The day of or the day after a gym session I'll often grab a nap on the couch after work around 8pm. I'll fall asleep for a couple of hours and wake up on my own. When I do wake up I feel like I'd been hit by a truck. I'm well rested, but not energized.
I can't go to bed for a few hours after that; for example yesterday I didn't go to bed until 2AM.
Am I lacking sleep, or not enough rest or lack of protein. I've recently started taking BCAA which has been helping me to recuperate a lot faster from those gym sessions.
Any idea why? I do take my multi-vitamins, Omega-3, protein shakes and BCAA.
