    Such a thing as lifting too late at night?

    Is late at night bad for an intensive workout? Perhaps 11pm?

    As long as you can fall asleep when you need to, then no.

    I find if I do that my body is kicking in high gear and I am unable to sleep. If somehow you don't find this to be a problem, then no it should be fine. If I was you though I would go to bed earlier and workout in the morning.

    Make sure you have adequate time for post workout nutrition too.

    I'm all for late night workouts! After some time in the hot tub/shower and good nutrition post workout you should be able to fall asleep with no problem

    As long as you do what was already said (food) and sleep enough into the morning to rest.

    Sleep is very important.
