i know everyone should aim at about 8 or more hours..
i tend to get about 7 hours 30 mins regularly (as long as i dont take too much PWO)
im just interested in seeing some honesty about sleeping habits
Sleeping and quality sleeping are two different things. Protein synthesis only happens when your body reaches deep sleep and your REM's are at their highest. So you could get 8 hours of bad sleep or 4 hours of good sleep and be better off.
Ideally I get around 8 on non work days and about 5 on work nights.
do you work out the day after you only sleep 5 hours?
reason being, im getting like 7 30 every night and like 12+ on the weekends lol
and somehow im STILL tired, still making gains but, i dont get it
maybe 6 hours a day? 8 at the most
Comic Sans makes me feel gangsta
always shoot for 8 usually like 7, weekends like 8 to 10 on sunday
I'm back from a longggg nap!
I'd love to get 8, but i work and have kids that need to go to school then sports after school. So i'm lucky if i get 6. I don't remember what it's like to sleep past 7:00 am anymore.
Typically 6 hours for me. Sucks.
Ummm 6 during school time and 9, cause i go more hardcore on the workout, during brakes. It matters if its good sleep or not. Also from what i've read sleep is 90 minute cycles so you want to aim for 7.5-9 hours. 8 is in middle of cycle.

Rosie, how much caffeine to you take in daily?
I get 8 hrs a night and after a workout I tend to need more like 9.5hrs.
from 8-830pm to midnight I'm out.....after that I fall back asleep around 4, just in time to get up at 5
So 5 is good average
IDK why but I don't like it!!
I gave up tobacco like 5 mos ago, so that can't be it.......WhoTF knows!!!
And for some damn reason, sleeping pills give me a "fight to stay awake" feeling, although I'm just listening to myself breathe, trying to shut my mind off and drift away.....its stupid, really.
I give a f**K!!
I sleep 7-8 hours a night and don't need a nap in the day. If i get 6 or less, I definitely need a 1-2 hour nap. Sleep is conducive to a healthy well-performing body. I have heard most professional athletes sleep at least 10 hours a night and pro bodybuilders even more.
I shoot for getting 7, am happy if I end up with more than 5, can function on as little as 2 for as much as 3 nites in a row. Luckily after a couple 2 hour sleep nights, i generally get a good nights sleep. Even using meds, its hard for me to regularly get full nights sleep. There was a point where OTC products worked well enough, now not even prescription works all that well. Some days HGHPro works, some days even trazadone doesn't.
