    How important is 8 hour sleep?

    How important is 8 hour sleep? I'm a college students and when it's midterm or final I sleep around 3-5 hours. LIke today I only slept 2 hours and just woke up. How does it affect muscle growth If I don't have good sleep? I really had a hard work out and I'm worrying that it might not grow.

    You grow when you sleep so if you only sleep 2 hours your obviously not going to recover and grow as best as you would getting 7 or 8 right? 2 hours is NOTHING you need to get 6 hours at the very least.

    I rarely get much more than 8, except on weekends, then it might be 9 or even 10 (if I'm being a total lazy-ass). With less than 7-7.5, though, I start feeling royally ****ty...

    I maybe get 6-7 at best a night and I'm doing well. Not to say I couldn't see more gains with 8+ hours of sleep, but just because you don't get alot of sleep doesn't mean you won't grow.

    Just wait until you get used to the human alarm clock and then he goes ahead and pulls a 14 hour nighter on ya! I've had to explain that one to the boss before.

    Anyways, 6 months in my son was pulling the 14 hours but he's ALWAYS been a good sleeper (thank god). It's the pottying like a big boy that he struggles with.... just wait...


    On topic -

    I rarely get more than 6 hours of sleep during the week. AT best i'll get 7 on a training day and on a 'rest' day i'll definitely get 8 hours (if I take a rest day during the week)- weekends anywhere between 5-10 depending if I use my cheat meal to have some drinks or not (this usually leads to late nights and less sleep).

    Awww. I just love their noses. Iwas so obsessed with my son's nose at that age that i'd nibble on it. Crazy I know.

    I'd post pictures of my boy but i'm a little stand offish about posting them in a public forum - it's just a quirk of mine.

    Back on topic,
    It is generally healthiest to get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep each night. Studies have shown (please don't ask me to track down the journal where I read this) that between the ages of 15 and 25 people should be getting about 9.5 hours of sleep per night. That is optimal for growth and overall health.

    On an ironic and related note, the US is one of the most sleep deprived countries in the world. My wife has so much crap going on that she needs sleeping pills a couple times a week to even fall asleep.

    sleep is very important. not everybody needs 8hrs of sleep, that's just a general guideline. but if you're getting less and are konked out allt he time, then that's a sign u need more and your gains are probably suffering.

    Exactly. I always go to bed early so I can get as much sleep as possible. Sometimes life gets in the way, but the majority of the time I average between 8-9 hours. I love sleeping, it's my second favorite thing to do in the bedroom

    when i get 10 hrs, my body is so sluggish and wants more. i hate that feeling.

    i think 8 is optimum but if u can get away with less then more power to ya...i've gotten my body to used to 6hours without feeling too fatigued and still seeing gains. (although with 8 i mite see more )

    If u want to grow, u must sleep. U dont grow in the gym. THink about it this way, would u cut ur workout short for any stupid reason? No, so unless u have to wake up for something important, sleep is EXTREMELY important, and its very important to get all the sleep u need

    I sleep 6 hours/day and I'm doing fine.

    Sleeping lots shortens your lifespan anyway.
