    Just how important is proper sleep while on gear??

    I only get about 5-6 hours nightly. I have to be up at 4:30 am every morning to go to work. I also have a wife and child that I have to spend time with. Any info would be helpful.

    Best to get at least 7 if not 9. I can't hit it hard in the gym if I only get 5 or 6. I struggle if I only get 7.

    I think it will depend on the person. Some people just require more sleep than others. However, good growth and recovery will require ample sleep.

    Definitely just depends on the person. Some people simply need more sleep than others. I am one of them, I am no good without 8-9 hours.

    dont forget you only grow in your sleep! more important that how much you sleep, is how much you eat right before you sleep. imagine going from 10:00 am to 6:00 eating nothing? no fun... ESPECIALLY if the only time of day you could grow was 10:00-6:00. get my drift?

    On cycle I can only sleep for about 4 hours. Especially on Dbol . Sleep doesn't even feel necassary. I guess that's what they call "the sense of anabolic well-being". lol

    wow, i don't sleep much. I think I get 6 on an average night. I don't set alarms or anything, I just automatically wake up after about 6 hours. I wish I could sleep more, it would fill some of this spare time I have

    I'm taking this summer off and doing absolutely nothing since I'm heading to graduate school in the fall. I want to have a nice little break before I spend a few more years busting my ass. Free time is great
