    Not getting enough sleep!

    Hey everyone. Happy to finally be posting on the forum.

    I got a major question that I'm not sure if my own logic can answer.

    Sleeping is a vital part of exercise, obviously. But here's my main question;

    "If I work out, say, my arms and shoulders and pull an all nighter the same night in order to study for an exam. Those muscles won't repair/grow during that period right? Does that mean it will grow/repair during the next night I sleep or will nothing happen at all and I just wasted my time working out?"

    Thank you.

    I know it's an absurd question but I just had to ask.

    When you say "all nighter" do you meaning staying up till the next day without any sleep what so ever?

    Well this is not good and yes it will effect your muscle gains, testosterone levels will also drop and you could possible end up over-training as your body hasent had any time to "rest" sleep is important for muscle growth/recovery.

    I always get at least 6 hours sleep minamum, during the week its usually 8 hours but on the weekends i usually only get 6 as most of the time on a friday/saturday night i go out and dont get home till maby 3-6am, but whatever time i get home i always make sure i get atleast 6 hours sleep from that, if i dont go out i will get a good 10 hours sleep though.

    New years how ever i only got probally less than 1 hour sleep, but apart from that always 6 hours sleep MINAMUM. Sleep is important man.

    Your muscles repair when you aren't taxing them. While you're pulling an all nighter, they will repair. Will they repair as well as while you're sleeping, and your body is at rest? No. But they will still work on recovering.

    Ideally, you want to get a full nights sleep each night, however, this is the real world, and reality throws speed bumps along the way. So, do what you can.
