    Nap after workout

    Is it good to take a nap post-workout because after my workout im just so exhausted that i need a nap. I get 7-8 hours of sleep a night and im not tired when i wake up, in school or when im working out. This also occurs on my rest day. What I want to know is it okay to take a nap about 30 min to an hour after workout or should i wait until nighttime and sleep at my normal time.

    It's up to you. 30mins - 1 hour isn't really a good nap though... ~90 minutes would be better in my opinion

    It would probably be even better to take advantage of being tired and just get a good long sleep at night though.

    Napping is an integral part of my daily routine. It can REALLY help you recover from your previous workouts.
