Default Sleeping and Deadlift

Just curious, does anyone have trouble sleeping the night they do deadlifts?

I work out after work usually around 7:45 pm and I've noticed each and everytime I hit Deadlifts/Back HARD I have trouble sleeping that night.

I feel no pain or discomfort just wide awake. I'm assuming it's because it's hitting my CNS pretty hard but of course that's just an assumption. I'm just curious as to any other people have experienced this.

Interesting, I have the oposite happen, when I hit heavy deads, I could take a nap right there in the gym after my last set.

Yup, I get completely wired...

I wouldn't mind it so much except that the next day I'm sleepy and lethargic.

No big deal I guess.

That does sound wierd. You're pumping the largest muscles on your body so maybe they're just not ready to shutdown when you are.

Is there any way you could do your dead workout in the morning?

Mornings may not be such a bad idea aside from the will power it'll take to wake up, work out, back home to shower, and back out to work.

It would be worth checking out just to see how I react.

I have the opposite effect also. You don't go to bed at a different hour after that workout, do you? I assume you don't, but I can't not ask..... Are you supplementing with anything?
