  3. Now that I'm on summer break I'm getting 10+ hours everyday. Feelsgoodman

  4. 7hrs of sleep following a training day? Do you also wake up feeling like crap? Just wondering because on 6hrs sleep after a day of training I wake up tired but the one guy at my work claims he regularly gets 5hrs sleep and feels great lol.

    Nice man, with that kinda sleep you must be able to train like a beast!

  6. Given the options would you guys sleep more and train less or train more and sleep less? These are really my only options for the week, on the weekends though I should be able to kill it at the gym and get some sleep.

  7. It's not just the amount of hours, but also the quality of the sleep.

    Yea i just don't think 6hrs is working for me on days that involve lifting, cardio not so much an issue. 8hrs on workout days and I'm fine but anything less and I feel like garbage. Tried splitting the routine up more to spend less time in the gym but it just doesn't seem to workout for me.

    Life gets in the way. Invest in a pre workout like enhanced or iforce has a great deal on the planet which has conquer. The new pre by them along with hemavol. If you can go to bed earlier or take some gaba/melatonin that mite help.

  12. 7-8 hrs per night. I make sure I'm in bed with enough time to get those hours every night. If I'm feeling like I won't fall asleep quickly enough I will take zQuil and that usually does the job.

    Zquil has acetaminophen in it. Its a nsaid. Can prolong recovery. Another topic for another day.

    Why would they have a pain reliever in a sleep aid? I thought that was acetaminophen free.

  15. It is not a question of supps but definitely how much sleep I get. If everyone else on here is getting 8hrs+ than I know I need to fix my routine to focus heavy lifts on the weekends. Legs is probably the most taxing so I guess that and chest for saturday and sunday?

  16. Sometimes you just get what you can I average anywhere between 4-7 hours. 8 would be a treat.

  23. i get in bed so i can get about 8.5 hours of sleep, i then usually fall asleep to get 8 hours, but i do wake up at least once a night

    i do find that something like 6.5 hours of sleep rather than 10 or 11 hours is better for me.....over sleeping kills me

    I have a 3hr round trip commute to work everyday. So basically I get up 5:45am and leave the house at 6:30am. I get home at around 7pm and then I eat and get ready for the gym. I'm in the gym 8-8:30pm finish up at 9:30pm eat, shower, etc. and go to bed at about 11-11:30.

  25. I usually get 6-7, that will probably be less in September when our baby comes! I lift at 5:45 in the morning so usually try to be in bed around 10, usually takes me til around 11 to fall asleep, sometimes longer. Sometimes it's tough to wake up but once I'm up I'm pretty good to go throughout the day.

  26. anywhere from 3 to 9. i have lots of other hobbies besides working out that can keep my up late some nights.

    but whenever i go to sleep i set an alarm to wake me up between sleep cycles. in other words every night i try and wake at a 90 minute interval. i started doing that back in january and even if i only get 6 hours a night i find i feel much more refreshed during the day. i was actually amazed. i thought for sure it wouldnt make a difference.

    i got one of those apps on my phone that i used for a few months that recorded movement and sound. i used to toss a lot at night and make a lot of noise. i hardly make any noise now and dont move much.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Even if I wake up after 6 hours sometimes I just wanna lay there in the bed for another half hour.

    What's the app called? I think that would be pretty interesting to check out

  29. There were a bunch of them. I used several paid ones and used the 30 day trials then would switch. I use the app sleep timer to set my alarm based upon cycles.

  30. I make sure I'm in bed around the 9 hour mark so I'd say usually 7-8.5 hours. I also take melatonin which I've found helps me fall asleep quicker. I'm still pretty bad about tv or the computer around bed time though so quality varies I suppose.
