Exercise in the evening and sleep

2018-04-17 22:06:08

Often I can only exercise in the evening, but I don't do it because I fear the effect on sleep and circadian rhythm.

I am thinking I should have a better understanding.

So how does different forms of strenuous exercise close to bedtime affect sleep and circadian rhythms?

In my case it would be HIIT-like sessions, possibly lower intensity, for 5-15 minutes.

Resistance training in the evening is usually "Anti DOMS" maintenance or "getting back in" where I try to train light and not cause microtrauma/DOMS (But often I miscalculate)
