    Everyone is different mate

    Some people need 12 hours, some 4

    A routine is always good, and the best is deep uninterrupted sleep

    arnies foster parents have stated that he sometimes only got 3 or 4 hours sleep a night and look at him.if you dont get enough sleep i would have thought it would affect your body motabalism.ie body clock when to eat etc.yet there are nightworkers who are very accomplished builders,so you must be right mate thanks for that

    IIRC TT said he only gets 4 odd hours (am i right toxic lol) It's not just sleep im sure your muscles will also grow when you rest i.e. sitting down watching t.v./reading etc....

    As far as i know, your body secretes around 60-70% of its Growth Hormone during sleep, so it is important, but people vary.

    I tend to get about 5 hours at the moment with working late on a night until 5-6am.

    Not really.

    Get in about 5.30am on average, sleep for a few hours. Get up, take ECA, go back to bed for 30 mins then on the treadmill for 45 mins.

    Weights are doing well at the moment, as long as my diet is good, which it is, then i feel fine.

    Don't know how you do it, I really don't.

    5 hours, I need at least 8, I like 9-10. I always want more sleep in morning, but when I'm up it pass's very quicky.

    It can be less to be honest, i mean sometimes i get in at 5am, then im up for morning cardio at 9.

    I used to sleep in all the time when i was at Grammar School, every chance i got i would sleep for 10-12 hours, but now, im lucky if i get half that.

    You need about 6 or 7 hours min if your human! If you sleep less than that then your not getting enough sleep and its not good for you in the short or long term, It might not effect you too much, you will still grow with training ect but it certainly takes its toll on you long term.

    when I was working in a biscuit factory on the early shift, ie. 6-4. I was getting about 4 or 5 hours sleep a night, max. sometimes less, and it had a SERIOUS effect on my mental health. half the time I felt like I was living in a dream, the other half I felt like killing myself.
    which I didn't, obviously
    sleep=GOOD
