 I am the exact same way also, but lately I started taking Melatonin...I am sleep maybe 15-30 minutes more but I am sleeping much deeper.  Give it a shot and see.. take it 45 minutes before bed.


every pharmacy/drug store carries it.. 5mg

HA! U crazy Johnhey. I'm 6'1" and have been sleeping anywhere from 4 hrs on the low end to 6 hrs max for my whole adult life. The other night I slept 3hrs and woke up and was so restless, I got up and hit the gym in the morning before my 8hrs workshift. Sleep is essential and overrated all at the same time. I just sleep as much as my body tell me too

damn . Cheesy
seriously tho, My best friend is 6'2 or average height. And he only sleeps 4-6 hours a day. If he take a nap, even for 30 minutes, it fucks him up and he can only sleep for 2-3 hours that night. He said he been like that all his life.

7 is what I strive for on weekdays, but its usually between that and 6 hours

5 hours occassionally (and I still have great work outs in the gym)

Any less than that and there is no way I can function/train!

8 hours+ on weekends!
