The importance of sleep. Whenever you talk about sleep, especially around a group of lifters, these questions then come up, “Should I be ingesting protein before I go to bed? Does that mess up my metabolism? Does that gonna make me jacked in four weeks? Is this a good thing? Is it a bad thing? Should I get up in the middle of the night and consume protein?” All very good questions. I did a run many, many years ago of where I got up in the middle of the night and consumed some protein. I would put an insulated cup in the bathroom with ice in it and would set my alarm for around three in the morning. I would get up and consume that and then go back to bed cause I wanted to keep the anabolic response going as much as possible again, an n = 1 experiment. But was that necessary?
