  • how many hours do you sleep?

    just seeing how everyone else has their sleep set up. playing around with different hours while doing some magnesium before bed. i still wake up with the urge to stay in bed despite trying many different sleep hours.

    also, commentary on your recovery with different sleep times is appreciated. one night i took a huge meal in before bed and knocked out for about 10 hours, waking up ~2-3 times in between. felt great but wasted a lot of the day.

    Have you ever tried a polyphasic sleep cycle?

      This is interesting.
      You're perfect, yes it's true. But without me...you're only you.

        In bed at 10 and up between 6:30 and 7:30 - usually have to get up twice during the night to use the bathroom.

        Those polyphasic cycles are interesting, but don't seem feasible for those who work a normal job.

            This guy from the same website didn't seem to like it much:

            Definitely an interesting concept though

                QUITE interesting. have you tried this? i also wonder if this messes with recovery for lifters, since i am assuming most of the people with those different cycles were not serious lifters.

                          has anyone noticed their sleeping habits affecting their recovery in a positive/negative way?

                            It's not any better in Fanta-sea.

                            In bed by 9:30-10 pm... up sometime between 2:30-4 before my alarm goes off at 4:15.

                            The anxiety is gone, but I wake up and can't sleep anymore. So I just study til 6, then do a bit of cardio.

                              Weeknights, I get around 6.5-7. I carry my lunch every day and am able to get about a 20-30 minute power nap weekdays after lunch. I know a lot of people can't do this, but I sure can! It helps with my energy for the rest of the day and my workout that night... On weekends, I get closer to 9-10 hours.
