    Unhappy insmonia after workout

    i always have a issue with sleeping ( deprivation-insomnia ) the day when i workout any type of intense workout like crossfit ,I thought I might be over training, so I took two weeks off to rest, but the same came right back when I started up again , i generally do my workout at 6 pm and i also tried to workout earlier in the morning but the same happened ..! anyone help me

    update : i am male 24 , i dont think its a glycogen delpletion beacuse i may do 50 squat and same happens ( i dont think 50 squats would deplet glycogen ).!!!!

    When you are actually asleep, your sleep cycle results in cortisone eventually being released to wake you up.

    Intense exercise gives cortisone a momentary bump. It's quite logical that it would interfere with getting to sleep if it's in the evening..

    Crossfit is needlessly intense, and therefore gives you a needlessly pronounced and prolonged cortisone bump.

    Don't do crossfit.

    I realize you may not like that answer.

    There are other explanations for insomnia, but this one is exercise related.

    I always work out in the morning. When I'd workout or run in the afternoon, my sleep sucked. I don't know the physiological explanation or it, nor do I care. Working out late in the day will ruin sleep...period.

    Your workout probably revs you up too much to allow you to sleep. Maybe you should work out in the morning.

    To be fair he has said (twice) that he's tried training in the morning, with no benefit to the sleep issue
