Working Out Late At Night May Not Change Sleep Patterns

Working Out Late At Night May Not Change Sleep Patterns
3/4/2013 2:35 PM ET

Those who workout vigorously may get the best sleep, says a new study from researchers at the University of Kentucky. For the study, the researchers collected data from the 2013 National Sleep poll, which include about 1,000 adults.

They found that those who reported the most vigorous exercise also reported feeling the most satisfied with their sleep habits. One surprising result was that even those who work out late at night claimed to sleep better.

According to lead researcher Barbara Phillips, only 3 percent of those who work out late at night reported having trouble sleeping. She tells USA Today that people should not be afraid to work out late:

"The timing of exercise ought to be driven by when the pool's lap lane is open or when your tennis partner is available or when you have time to get away from work, not by some statement that has never been validated," says Phillips.
