Counting Sheep? Try This ‘Superior’ Exercise
Let’s face it. You’re not yourself when you don’t get enough sleep.
Just one bad night’s sleep can make you feel like the walking dead the next day.
And if you suffer from poor sleep, chances are your friends, family, and even your doctor have all fed you a laundry list of ‘remedies.’
From sleep meds… to mattresses… and even special pillows and blankets…
If you’ve been lacking in the sleep department, I bet you’ve already tried them all.
And you’re STILL not getting the rest you need.
Fortunately, there’s a way to enhance both the quantity AND quality of your sleep WITHOUT taking a single sleep aid… or whipping out your credit card to pay for some unproven gimmick.
Strength Training: The ‘Superior’ Secret to Better Sleep
It’s no secret that staying active and getting plenty of exercise (of any kind) is good for your overall sleep. Studies have found that exercise increases your sleep quality by reducing sleep onset (the time it takes to fall asleep) and decreasing the amount of time you lie awake in bed.
But according to a new study, incorporating strength training into your fitness routine can give you the most bang for your buck in the sleep department.
Researchers at Iowa State University looked at how various forms of exercise affected overall sleep patterns amongst folks that had trouble getting at least seven hours of sleep each night.

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
At the end of their 12-month study, they found that sleep duration increased by an average of 40 MINUTES amongst the folks that incorporated resistance training into their lives three days per week.
In fact, study leaders even went so far as to deem resistance and strength training as the ‘superior’ form of exercise when it comes to helping folks get more sleep.
It should be noted that other forms of exercise (i.e. cardio) did help folks sleep more… but on average it was less than resistance training.
If you’re already incorporating weights into your workouts, keep it going! But if you’re new to the world of resistance and strength training, you don’t have to join a gym or workout alongside a bulging meathead.
A quick Google search for “chair exercises” is a great way to find simple, effective resistance moves that can be done in the comfort of your own home.
You can also brew yourself a cup of ashwagandha tea to help your body wind down.
The leaves of the ashwagandha plant contain a powerful compound called triethylene glycol.
This compound has been shown to promote sleep induction – helping your body wind down and prepare for sleep, improving overall sleep quality.
