I am talking about no more than 7 hours no less than 5.5. Do you still get up and go to the gym?
Hell yeah! If I didn't I would never train!!!
Sleep is important for sure and I definately could do with more but I'd still suck it up and train... and try to take naps where possible. I know everyone says who has time for naps but you'd be suprised at how and when you can sneak in 20 mins here and there if you really try.
Yup. I still train. I shoot for 7 hours, but I end up getting 6 more than I would like. I just try to make up for it with a few naps during the week and hopefully at least one day to sleep in on the weekend.
The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
I've never gotten that much sleep, and i find that even if before a work out i feel half-dead, if i push myself to at least work out a bit i'll feel wide awake afterwards.
I do get the odd crap workout though, if you really dont think you can handle a whole work out, tone it down a bit. Have a back up routine that doesnt take as long to do, like 3/4 or 1/2 the time of your usual routine.

Yes, I train without adequate sleep too. Usually hit the hay around 10:00 p.m., wake up at 3:45 a.m. and then drive to work. Weekdays, I work out after work. I eat my pre workout meal on the way from work. I get to the fitness center around 3:30 p.m. and put in 60-90 minutes.
Weekends, I always get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. I train on both days.
just for the record. Skip La Cour won Mr. Team Olympia 2 years in a row. He has won many other competitions and between him and jeff willet they are the biggest and best "natural" bodybuilders around. He only sleeps 6 hours a night. Goes to bed at 10 and sleeps till 4 and goes the the gym by 5.
Wish I got more but half the time it's only about 5 or so. I get up at 4am to get my first meal and sups in then to gym by 5 for 1st workout. I do a second cardio in in the afternoon. I am also a massage therapist so I sometimes feel like I am training all day ( I do deep tissue work). I try to nap when I can as well. I just don't like to miss a workout..LOL
Usually, no I've been really picky about my sleeping habbits lately. these past couple weeks, I've been getting 11-12 hours of sleep a night just because school is finally giving me a "break" so to speak. Any less than 10 hours, and I wouldn't train.
