    I would think as much as you need. Anything less than 7 and I'm off track. I shoot for 8-8.5 hrs a night.

    The more the better...
    Don't over think it...

    One thing I've been learning is going by how my body feels when I do certain things.

    9-10 is what I aim for. I have gained a lot of muscle since going from 6-7 to 9-10 and I am much happier.

    My body wants at least 9 but my life in the last year says i get around 6 on average. Whenever I get the chance to go all out I'll sleep up to 12 hours. That doesn't happen lately unless say I have a heart attack lol.

    Remember that we all have to do it 100% in the gym. But it only counts about 30%
    Them other 70% that's left. Come's from enaugh rest/sleep and a proper diet !!

    I sleep about 7-8 houres every day. And that's enaugh for me. But if i stress around all day. And not think about my diet. Do i find it hard to gain.

    i would say sleeping and diet are 90% training just breaks muscle down, which is obviously important.

    I get 5-6 a night and feel great. If I get more I'm tired and sluggish. Hell gen. Mccrystal used to get 2-3 and functioned off that. I think everyone is different, but 8 is the general recommendation. Find out what works for you.

    more is obviously better but i think if you can get about 6 each night you will still be ok and still be able to make good gains if everything else is in place. just make sure the sleep you do get is good, quality sleep. powerfull always gave me quality sleep and had me feeling rested when i woke up even if i didnt get an optimal quantity of sleep.
