    I work overnights so I get up at 3-4 PM. I aim for 7 hours a night and still feel like I never get enough sleep. Even if you can function reasonably well on 5 hours per night, it's going to catch up with you sooner or later.

    Less sleep equals less progress. I sleep 8-10hrs a day. I manage to make great gains every year because of this.

    I refuse to be tired if I can help it. I hate being tired. It just drags everything down...attention, stress coping, physical recovery, immune system.

    I get between 7-9 hours a night, that seems to do it. Usually in bed around 11pm.

    To be fair, Arnold told a kid once that he ate a lb of salt to get that big.

    But, I feel like I never get enough sleep either. You need your sleep to recuperate, especially if you try to get 100% out of your body daily. You grow when you rest/sleep, not in the gym.

    I'm on call 24 hours 6 days a week, with an 11 year old. So my sleep is all over the place. As long as I get 5 hours on a bad day and 6-7 the others I'm OK. And on my scheduled day off I sleep till I wake up on my own. For me I need atleast 5 hours or I'm a miserable fuck. You can only get by on less than 5 hours of sleep for so long, then daily life becomes hard let alone lifting and eating right.

    6-7 hours most nights. I don't wake up to an alarm most days either. I get up usually about 30-45 minutes before my alarm sounds.

    I work 9-12 hr days construction, this is with 1 1/2 hrs working out before...So 7hrs is a minimum if I want to function and have decent days.
