okay so i work a full time job from 6 to 230 pm M-F. its hard for me to get a full 8 hours of sleep. but i usually get 5 then come home and nap for 2 or 3 hours. does it matter when i sleep the 8 hours or does it have to be all at once?
some is better than none, but if it's @ once, it's a lot better
it is tough for the body to slip into REM given only 2 hours of sleep, so you could be just tiring yourself out. try to follow your biological clock aka carcadian rhythm. We are all configured to follow it exactly, within an hour or two difference.
I cant post a link, but if you wikipedia carcadian rhythm they have a good diagram.
its better to have 8 hours of rest. The longer and deeper sleep you have the more GH you will release allowing your body to recover better and grow

I also think there have been studies on the "power nap" that show to get a little recharge, then you should limit nap to around 30 mins. That way you get a bit of rest, but don't usually get to REM sleep. When you get to REM, and only stay there for a short period, usually you feel worse than not napping at all. Try to get another hour or so at night if you can and take a shorter nap in day.
If you workout after work in afternoon, then don't nap. I would think that 2-3 hours of sleep after 230pm but before 11pm or midnight would wreck a good nights sleep. Skip the nap and add it to bedtime if your schedule allows.
