    Question Which type of soreness makes sleeping the hardest to come by?






    After today's pull day I remembered how tough it is to sleep on a sore upper back. No other type of soreness prevents me from falling asleep the way my upper back will.

    On a side note, in the morning I like to stretch in bed ever so slightly as a part of awaking. However, if my legs are sore, its the pits.

    Shoulder was the worst for me. It woke me up constantly, because I am spastic during sleep.

    Legs for me

    Im a fuckwit when it comes to sleeping, everything has to be 100% right otherwise i'll never get/stay asleep. Most soreness pisses me off in that way.

    Takes me over an hour to get comfortable sometimes. The worst is probably upper back or hamstrings though.

    lol.

    But yeah, i've actually gotten better - sound no longer bothers me as much.

    My current room in the complex where i live is right next to the front door of the block, the mechanism that works the elevator is in the wall next to my bed, the stairwell is above my room, and theres a train track behind the building.

    No shit. At the start of the year i was considering mass homicide when the fuckers upstairs wouldnt turn their music down.

    Im vaguely oblivious to it all now.

    Yeah, I forgot about noise. I've contemplated getting a drum kit to pay back neighbors that kept me awake all night with music, but I found another way.

    Go out for a mid week session, come back really late, point the speakers at the floor face down. Crank it up, jump around. Paybacks a bitch. That shut the fuckers up.

    feather pillow, and i lay one under my arm to give elavation to my back when its sore. same with shoulders works for me. chest i have not found any thing to help. as for noise i turn the tv on a low volume then focus on that sound. makes it much easier to sleep. hell i used to live next door to a damn crackhouse those ass holes would be yellin and screamin at each other bout 2 am. i learned to tune it out.

    Being sore doesn't hinder my sleeping at all.

    +1 here. I feel like I know what the anorexic girls go through in their mindset when they look in the mirror. I am always critiquing myself, and talking myself into a bit of insecurity of how big/strong I am. But on our end of the spectrum, that just provides us with more drive to achieve better results, ultimately making us healthier and better in mind, body, and spirit.

    I guess. Not all of my habits are healthy. If I knew I would live to be 70, I would trade 10 years of my life for 10% more lean body mass.

    i never used to have trouble sleeping from soreness...until I started working construction/landscaping. my lower back and shoulders keep me up at night... so lately ive been killing myself at work, coming home and killing myself at the gym, and downing 5 beers and passing out at 8 pm. wake up at 6 and repeat.

    Not so much muscle pain...Occasional bouts of RA (and associated joint pain) are a killer for me. After experiencing that one, muscle pain is almost enjoyable.

    Soreness doesn't keep me up at all. Quite the opposite, being sore makes me want to pass out and sleep for 16 hours.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?
