I'm currently working on my body building. I found that it is good to do some small exercises like weight lift and thandal on morning.

I’m waking at 5:30 am since I need to do some official work on that time (send an update mail to my US team) and I’ll drink a cup of water and then a cup of milk in empty stomach. Then, I’ll do the above exercise for 15 to 20 minutes. But, my office time starts at 10:am. So I’ll go for a small sleep after the excercise.

Is it good for health? Does it affect my weight gain process?

  • Yes, it is OK. Sleep is paramount for bodybuilding. Commented Jan 27, 2014 at 9:53
  • @ssteinberg, sleep immedietely after excercise is my question. is it ok? Commented Jan 27, 2014 at 9:55
  • Yes, there is no physiological reason I am aware of that would make it bad in anyway, on the contrary, it helps with recovery. Commented Jan 27, 2014 at 9:59

    If I were you, I'd have more than a cup of milk before exercising especially given your other question regarding weight gain. You can't expect to gain weight if you are not fueling your training.

Shouldn't do you any harm at all. If anything, it will probably be quite beneficial. Providing your nutrition is in check that is. After your workout, make sure you refuel your body/muscles with some good quality food containing proteins, carbs and fats. Then sleep.
