i work eight days then get four off. i go to bed between 9:30pm and 10:00pm whether i work the next day or not. on work days i get up at 5:15am. my lifting schedule is constant also, same muscle groups each day of the week whether i worked that day or not. the problem is monday when i bench press. i cant sleep. any other night i sleep good but on mondays after benching i just lay in bed awake. could it be my body releases something more or extra hormone wise only after working my chest?

Are you using caffeine? If so how much? You could try 1-3mg of melatonin, 2 g of GABA ,5-HTP 100mgs.

4 mg of melatonin will work wonders. It will push you to sleep but it wont knock you out.....when you feel the urge to sleep, sleep.

I would up the melatonin to at least 6mg, replace the gaba with phenibut..1 to 2 grams, and substitute 2 to 4 grams of L-Tryptophan for the 5-http. Tryptophan is more effective because it's converted to serotonin after it crosses the blood-brain barrier, while 5-http converts to serotonin outside the brain.

thanks guys, caffiene, i was using 200mg at 5:30 in the morning before i left for work. not doing that anymore. i am staying up one hour later and sleeping better when i do go to bed. maybe i was getting to much sleep. my sleep seems to be good now. thank you again for your help.

your not overtraing m8 or using stimulants, take 1 week of the gym then see how you feel

i agree, giving the body some rest and letting it return to somewhat normal is always a good thing. NEVER anything wrong with to much rest unless you preping for a show. also take in consideration what your taking supp wise, over the counter or not.

this may be an odd suggestion, but sometimes when i elevate my feet in bed it helps me fall asleep alittle quick
