The most Underrated Factor In Fitness..

Did you know that with regular comprehensive exercise programs like those found on the US Sports Online Strength and Conditioning System; it is during sleep that the body breaks down excess body fats to be used by the muscles for the next workout. In essence you can train your body to burn fat while you sleep! That is provided you get enough sleep. Below are some tips to help you sleep better:
Tips for Good Sleep
(AP) - Having trouble getting to sleep at night, or awakening too early in the morning? Experts have these tips, based, in part, on a new study:
  • Maintain a regular sleep-wake cycle, even on weekends. Staying up late, with the lights burning, tends to reset the brain's sleep clock, making the body cry out for more sleep when the alarm sounds Monday morning.
  • If awakened during the night, try to remain in bed, with the lights out and your eyes closed. This will help sleep return and will not affect your normal sleep-wake cycle.
  • If you must get up, keep the lights as dim as possible. Bright lights tend to reset the brain's sleep clock. One hour of bright light exposure at night shifts the clock forward by about 10 minutes.
  • Avoid alcohol, tobacco and caffeine before bedtime.
  • If sleeplessness is caused by a disorder, treat that disorder specifically instead of trying to force sleep with pills.
  • Afternoon or early evening naps may make it harder to fall asleep at the regular time.
  • American travelers who fly overnight to Europe should try to nap immediately upon arrival. After a few hours of sleep, get up and walk in the sunlight. This will help reset the body clock to European time.

    Hi my name is Tawan Downs from Detroit Mi, a student athletes for UAPB last summer I was recovering from a back injury. The pain in my back was serious, but working with Mr. Lewis the pain in my back is gone. I'm 100% ready for the season. Working with Mr. Lewis I lost some weight and gain alot of strength preparing me for the season I can honestly say I'm going into in the best shape I've ever been in. I recommend him to anybody he will work with you and no rush but will help you finish your program. Thank you so much Nate Lewis and looking forward to working with you in the future.
