And, Sleep....

Do any of you have any knowledge on sleep, amounts of sleep, etc, and its correlation with fitness/muscle training/bodybuilding any of the above?

I did read somewhere online few weeks ago(can't remember where now, i read from so many different places) that a study showed not getting enough sleep can effect your health and recovery from exercising. I would think with bodybuilders this would be especially the case since they are breaking down their muscle tissue even more than the average athlete.

I believe this article recommended 7-8 hrs of sleep a day.

I know a good piece of advice is do not go on the computer after 8pm because the light coming off the screen will wake you up again. From my experience going to bed at 12am after a late shift at work I sleep better than if I go to bed at 12am after playing on the computer.

You guys take naps? I feel like naps right before I go to work make me feel awesome.

Oooh good tip! I have learned about lighting, being in the dark a hour before bed is better for sleep. I never thought about computer screen light being a factor. That is really good to keep in mind.
