O/T - What time do you get out of bed?
I generally get up at about 5.10am in order to get to the gym and train at 6.00am..... Get to bed by 10.30pm most nights (or before if I am particularly stuffed). That would mean that most days I get a grand total of 6.5 hours sleep. I generally try to catch up on wednesday (non training day) or the weekend.
I'm in the same boat as Brando. One week out of every 6 we do a week of dayshift where i'm up at 7am. Other than that i sleep till whenever most days.
I usually need 8-9 hours sleep but when I am close to a comp my body seems to be way more efficient at recovering and I only need 6.5-7hrs. And that's going to bed absolutely stuffed.
5.30 am ready for gym or cardio at 6.00 am. In weekends try and get up early to make the most of the days! 🙂
5am up, Sun is already rising at that time here in QLD. Gym at 6am. Bed about 930pm (sound like an old man) Same on weekends, like MC, hate sleeping in and wasting the day! Nothing like sitting on the beach, with a fresh baked pie (off season) and watching the sun rise at 5am, already mid 20 deg's at that time in QLD:)
Cannibal - 9.30pm my bed time too! Yeah finally someone who has the same sleeping patterns as me!!!

I average about 4.51 hours of sleep a night and feel like I've been kicked in the nuts. A few years ago I remember not being able to sleep enough and feeling really good.
I get more than 8 hours a night lately and loving it! Feel a lot better. Sleep is vitally important i think, not just for physical health but mental and emotional too.
Zac your sleeping hours are virtually ideal. If I lived in a perfect world, I'd go to bed at 10 and wake up at 6. It is important that you keep the same hours, whether it's the weekend or not. Unfortunately my job involves constantly rotating shifts, along with an entire week of nightshifts once a month. So my sleeping hours are constantly changing, totally fucking me up physically and mentally. As a result, I rarely sleep well these days-and most days I get up after 8-10 hours and feel like I haven't even slept at all.
Thats no good Stanaman.
5am every morning , back to bed between 10 and midnight....
Same as Stanaman,alot of rotating shifts which does make it hard to train and compete.Its not much fun when your breakfast is at 4pm.
Yeah. One week breakfast is at 4 or 5 PM and the next it's at 6 AM. Arrrrrrghhhh, I'm trapped in a living hell!!!!!!!!!!!
I naturally wake up when the sun does, so in winter it is hard to get up early. I'm generally up at 0500, bedtime ATM is after cardio and around 23:00-midnight. If at all possible I try to have an hours nap in the arvo.
