Wondered if any fitness experts could help
Recently I have increased my weights routine to a few times a week (Mon/Wed/Fri) but as soon as I did this I have been getting night sweats and wake up 3/4 times a night if its been an exercise day. I have just had my blood tests come back from the doctor and that was all clear and satisfactory so he suspects its the exercise being too intense (but i can't just stop exercising!).
However, it has been a nearly 2 months and doesn't seem to be calming down as my metabolism gets used to it. Which is weird to me.
Does anyone have any tips for changing my routine to help reduce the sweats. My room is cool enough and duvet switch to thin now its summer.
At the moment as I say I work out Monday/Tuesday/Friday at lunchtimes with dumbbells/home gym for around 40 minutes targeting most muscle groups. I then have a whey protein drink (i have 2 30g scoops of bulk powder with 400 ml water) as during the working week this is the easiest way to get protein in.
There's just so much garbage out there if you google it that not sure what to change... thinking maybe taking protein drinks on the rest days too, moving the exercise earlier, decreasing/increasing the protein drink measurements... etc. any advice welcome to make my sleep better.
On a basic level it would be good to know the science behind what causes them and adjust accordingly.
I'm 34, 5 ''6 and about 10 stone if thats relevant
