    As far as sleep per night, most people need between 7-9 hours per night. However, some can get away with 5-6 hours and some need/could use more. For me, I am way more tired on workout days for obvious reasons, and it stands to reason since your body needs to recover. As for any differences between the times...probably not, if that's your schedule every night. If not, though, you could really confuse your body.

    Well, it depends on your lifestyle. I would recommend 8, the usual answer. However I usually only get 6-7 and I recover pretty well.

    And the difference between 10pm-7am and 3am-12pm is that humans are not designed to be nocturnal. Your mind cant work as well during the night than during the day. But thats probably the only real difference, but once again, it depends on your lifestyle.

    I shoot for 8 usually get 6-7.

    The difference between 10-7 and 3-12 will depend on your current lifestyle. For example I go to bed at 1 am every day and wake up at 9 am. My body is used to it and been doing it for 5 years because of work. Others may have a hard time for this. Your body can really adjust to any sleeping routine just make sure you shoot for 7 or 8 hours.

    Honestly, the time frame that you sleep in isn't that big of a deal in my opinion. I usually get to sleep no earlier than 2 AM and sleep untill 10-11 AM. As long as your body is accustomed to the sleeping/waking intervals, I think you're fine. I can typically get by on 7 hours of sleep.

    As BoyFromAus said, I usually wake up at least once to take a piss (usually very early in the morning) so that may also effect your sleep cycle, but I haven't noticed this effecting my recovery.
