The effect of night‐time exercise on sleep architecture among well‐trained male endurance runners

Abstract : The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of night‐time (21:00 hours) high‐intensity, intermittent exercise on sleep architecture among well‐trained athletes in a laboratory setting. In a randomized, counterbalanced order, 11 well‐trained male runners completed a simulated trail‐running exercise (TRAIL) on a motorized treadmill and a resting condition (REST; no exercise during the day). After each condition, nocturnal autonomic nervous system activity and core body temperature (CBT) were measured and sleep was analysed using polysomnography and actigraphy. Markers of muscle damage (maximal voluntary contraction [MVC], plasma creatine kinase concentration [CK] and perceived muscle soreness) were recorded before and immediately (POST), 24 hr (H24) and 48 hr (H48) after exercise. TRAIL induced a high level of fatigue and mild exercise‐induced muscle damage, as determined by a reduction in MVC (−9.4%, p < .01, d = −1.36) and increases in [CK] (+176.0%, p < .01, d = 1.49) and perceived muscle soreness (+4.5 UA, p < .01, d = 2.17) compared with REST at H24. A trend for increased non‐rapid eye movement (+4.2%; p = .10; d = 0.86) and reduced rapid eye movement (−4.4%; p = .07; d = −0.87) during sleep was observed for TRAIL compared with the REST condition. Moreover, compared with REST, TRAIL significantly increased CBT and nocturnal HR during the first part of the night. In conclusion, sleep architecture was modified after night‐time, high‐intensity exercise among well‐trained runners.
