    I would recommend eating some protein after. Or at least have a creatine shake.

    I second that...

    If it works for you man, keep it up. As long as you are not having a hard time going to sleep
    The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens.

    Definitely not recommended. For one thing, after you workout, your pulse is much higher, and it can take a while before it gets back to normal. You should only sleep once you're relaxed. Also, I really think it's important to get in a solid meal after working out or at least a good protein shake. And how are you supposed to sleep right away with that in your belly. If I were you, I would look into rearranging your schedule so you can workout earlier, preferably the morning if at all possible. As far as lowering bodyfat goes, I don't know if there's any scientific evidence to back this up, but I and many others have found that early morning workouts were much better for overall performance including fat loss.

    My energy levels are crap is i work out in the morning. I tried it for a week once, and it wasn't good. My reps went down because I didn't have the energy to do those last few reps I'd usually have to grunt up. My energy levels are best in the afternoon, so that's when I usually work out. I guess I'm just not a morning person.

    I have never had a problem working out late at night. Went right to sleep.

    Would recommend getting some food in your stomach before going to bed though.

    Should definitely help you sleep, haha.

    As long as you eat a good meal after your workout I think it should be fine.

    chemistry

    Working out at night followed by sleep means your body is mobilizing fat stores and repairing itself immediately, once you sleep (sinc esleep is when the body repairs itself. Theroetically this would lead to muscles hardly getting sore and repairing quickly. However, wweight lifting in the day mobilizes fat stores to replenish energy and therefore would burn more calories for a few hours after the lift. Afternoon is the optimal time because you still burn the fat after the lift for a few hours then eat dinner (hopefully high protein meal) and then sleep (rebuilding). Lifting in the morning generally is for time constraints with work or wanting to get the lift done and over with if you dont enjoy lifting. I dont have the links to the studies, but there have been a few showing that gains are about equal, and fat loss is greater with morning and afternoon workouts.

    Older fatter persons with higher risk for CVD who lift directly before bed have been shown to generally have higher incidence of heart attack or stroke durign sleep because of the mobilization of fat, cho, and protein clogging up the arteries when the body slows down fro sleep

    With my work schedule, I can only lift at around 5:45 pm on Weekdays (if it's not an off-day) and on weekends, I can get in there way earlier (9am - 10am). And boy, let me tell you... 5:45pm in a gym is not only crowded, it's crazy sometimes! haha...

    Personally, back when I was in college I was lifting some weeks at 6am, the ass-crack of dawn, and it was unbelievable. There's nothing like it. Other weeks, I'd lift very late at night. I've been told it isn't good to vary up work-out times too much, but I didn't mind and it didn't affect me much.
