It's always a good idea to get restful sleep for the body

A normal Clemson football player has a lot of demands to juggle on their daily schedule with a full academic load, lifting weights, practice, media obligations, football meetings, social life, and other things that are common for today's student athlete.

One of the main things that can be hindered by anyone with a busy schedule regardless of their station in life is the all-important sleep.

However, Clemson is trying to help their football team improve their sleep by contracting out Rise Science, a Chicago-based sleep coaching program to help their players recover from workouts.

“We’ve already seen our student-athletes improve their sleep, and they feel the benefits,” Joey Batson, Clemson’s director of strength and conditioning, said in a statement via sporttechie.com. “We know how hard it is for student-athletes to prioritize sleep, but Rise provides individualized sleep plans and feedback and the program is really easy for our players and staff. Rise isn’t just showing our athletes how they are sleeping; the program helps them improve sleep discipline and increase overall sleep time, which we know will translate to better performance on and off the field.”

Anytime a sports team can try to get a slight advantage over their opponent before the game has even started, it's a smart idea to experiment with it. Trust me, I know how much better I feel if I just get one more hour of sleep on a given day than usual.

This is truly cutting edge technology in the world of Sports Science as Clemson is one of a handful of sports teams that are using the program alongside the Chicago Bulls, Chicago Cubs, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, West Virginia, Northwestern, Tennessee, and others.
