    Sleep

    I know that sleeping is very crucial to weight training, and trying to lose fat in general, but I was wondering do you HAVE to sleep early? I mean you need around 7ish hours of sleep a day, does it matter when you get those hours?

    As far as my broscience is concerned, I feel sleep is much more crucial when trying to build muscle and not so much as important when trying to lose weight as that comes down to being in a calorie deficit.

    As long as it is 7 hours continuous. Many years ago I tried a 3rd shift position, and never could get adjusted. I would sleep for 3 hrs when I got home from work, wake up for a few hours or so, then sleep again for 5 hrs in the evening. Even though I got 8 hours of sleep, it wasn't continuous and I felt like crap all the time.

    Consistency is important when it comes to sleep (or anything really). If you want to sleep from 3am to 10am, your body will adapt to that schedule as long as you are consistent about it. The challenge about "different" sleep schedules is making sure you can properly darken your room and make sure you can sleep peacefully. There are a lot fewer potential interruptions from 11pm to 6am than if you would sleep from 2pm to 9pm.

    I suppose a proper bedtime ritual also helps to fight your natural circadian rhythm.

    Still, it's less natural to not sleep during dusk/night so there might be a possibility that your sleep will be less qualitative. It goes against our evolution and natural melatonin production. Maybe someone with experience can comment on whether melatonin supplements are a good idea in a case like this.

    Theres something to be said of keeping the same sleeping pattern. If your sleeping 9-7 one night and 2am-9am another, might not be ideal.

    has no effect on fat loss or weight training. sleep is sleep, lifting is lifting.
    There is always someone less fortunate, with real hunger, with real adversity, who made something of themselves. What is your excuse?

    Best time to sleep is at night and should be continuous, i.e. 7-8 hours consecutively instead of 4 hours of sleep then awake then 3 hours of more sleep later. There are evolutionary mechanisms (Zietgebers) that will induce hormonal changes with regards to sleep. And you have to keep this routine consistent (i.e. must sleep at the same time every day) or your circadian rhythm screws up which will cause hormonal imbalances. For example, growth hormone (GH) is spiked at terminal point of your long sleep and when you wake up til your first bite of breakfast. If you are nocturnal, exposure to Zietgebers like change in natural light intensities (i.e. evening changing to night) will conflict with your circadian rhythm. Better to avoid nocturnal states. Most of this will only directly affect the state of your mind. I was nocturnal for years, I still made gains in exercise but mind was a goner and the gains were not optimal.

    Believe it or not, sleep doesn't do **** all for the body. Its only for the mind. But if your mind isn't right, your body is the victim.

    good thread
    yes it matters, ofc only night sleep will help you.
    Also, if still relevant, you can find some information here that will help you get your sleep in order, as well as make a plan for your diet.
