    Oversleeping increases the risk of the following:

    1) Diabetes

    2) Heart Disease

    3) Obesity

    4) Depression

    Doctors recommend between 7-9 hours of sleep.

    From Harvard school of Medicine (Article)

    In recent years, the ideas of sleep as a restorative process have gained support from empirical evidence collected in human and animal studies. The most striking of these is that animals deprived entirely of sleep lose all immune function and die in just a matter of weeks. This is further supported by findings that many of the major restorative functions in the body like muscle growth, tissue repair, protein synthesis, and growth hormone release occur mostly, or in some cases only, during sleep.

    Sleep enough. But don't oversleep. 7-9 hours is what I would shoot for. Oversleeping can lead to a host of problems as well as under sleeping. Recharge, wake up, and carry on

    I try & get 8 hours, but it doesn't always happen.. Sleep is essential to bodybuilding & general health... the importance of sleep is definitely underrated.

    8 in the rack, most always. Prolly only 6-7 actual sleep however. I tend to battle mild insomnia. Wish I could get an epic 8 hours of pillow-slobberin' happy knock-out time....le sigh...

    I shoot for 8 but get an actual 6-7 also. Melatonin tolerance is too high.
