The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Sleeping Issues

    About 3 months ago I had a sleeping issue where I had 2 completely sleepness nights in a row, I took Nyquil for about a week and got back to normal sleeping habits. But.. ever since then more and more lately it's like I cant get any quality sleep.

    Ive tried every reasonable amount of sleep and nothing works. I always feel a little rundown and have bags under my eyes as of late. It's definetly affected my weightlifting and it's been getting worse. I lift my ass off and eat well, but I believe quality of sleep may be the reason my lifts seem to be decreasing of late.

    Ive already tried averaging 10 hours of sleep a night, nothing. Ive considered I was sleeping to much, nothing. Tried in between, same problem.

    When it comes to sleep, it can have a lot to do with how old your mattress and pillows are. It could be as easy as that. That is kind of the expensive way to do it, but I changed my bed and I am getting better rest and my back hurts much less(along with stretching). If you dont think its that... then you may have developed insomnia?
    My sig scared getfit.

    This could be it, ive had my bed as long as I can remember. Thinking about going and buying one of those memory foam things for my bed, good investment?

    You may want to try Calcium Magnesium Zinc or ZMA. This has helped me get to sleep and stay asleep as well.

    Is that a pill or what food are high in that?

    I think im going to go ahead and buy a memory foam pad or something along those lines in the near future. It's about time I wake up to the 21st century on bed technology haha.

    Calcium Magnesium Zinc is a supplement normally found in pill form. You can get a bottle of 250 for about 12 bucks and I take 3 every night. ZMA is another pill supplement, which I have never taken but have heard that it helps with sleep issues. I am no nutrition expert but I believe that if you have a Magnesium or Zinc defiecency that is causing sleep issues than both of these should help. Easiest way to find out is to try it and see if it helps.
