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.

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.

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.

I find once I get much past 2.5g caffeine in a day that it starts having the reverse response, and starts making me sleepy. So I try and modulate, keep caffeine lower than that, but add in other stims

4-5 hours on work days. Usually a solid 8 one day on the weekend, and depending on my body 9- 10 hours on the other day on the weekend. Crazy I know!!!

one of the advantages of working from home is that i get to wake up when i wake up. sometimes at 8am, sometimes at 10am. that makes me wake up rested regardless of hours. but in general around 8 to 9 hours. i cannot function on anything under 7
