Sleep....

Ive been doing the 5x5 routine for the past 7-8 weeks, and its going well so far. but anyways after about week 4 or 5 I have noticed that I sleep ALOT longer than I used to. I would usually go to bed at 11:30 or and wake up at 7:30 easy, now I go to sleep at around 11:30 but i won't wake up till around 12 to 2. I figured that I just need more sleep, but just wondering if this is ok? It screws up my whole diet plan haha. I have to eat with smaller resting periods now.

    Yeah it's ok mate. It's when you lose sleep that you need to start worrying.

    then take break from the routine for a week or somthing like that. Then get back into it. It sounds like your body is telling you something. Listen to it.

    WOW - I wish I could stay in bed until around 12 - 2pm!!

    Seriously though, Windows' advice seems good, I was also getting very tired using this routine but then I took a week off to recover and I'm fine again now.

    Windows has a point in my opinion getting enough sleep is a good thing but your doing 12/14 hours. Listen to what your body is telling you take a week off.

    Make a note of how much you sleep during your week break. It will be interesting to see if you do sleep much less.

    yeah, i'm 20 and all i want to do is sleep. i usually sleep in late on weekends and later in the day i get tired. probably due to over-sleeping but oh well, all i know is that i sleep an awful lot now.

    just got off break and don't sleep nearly as long as when i was before. the long sleep periods were because of the work i guess. now im sleeping only 9 hours a night instead of 13-14. well about to start my next routine which will boost it back up to 12+
