Improving Sleep Monitoring sleep during training is practical and feasible using sleep logs and actigraphy. Sleep logs provide a rough estimate of sleep as they primarily contain the time the person started trying to sleep and the time that they awoke. Actigraphy can provide additional objective information, such as the time that the person went to sleep and the time that they awoke with an accuracy of one-min. The athlete needs to wear only a wristwatch-size actigraph to bed every night. Data need to be downloaded only once each week and sleep scoring has been simplified to a menu selection.
