The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I have gotten back into training after a few years off. I was wondering if my growth hormone release would be impaired by my lack of sleep? I get about 7 hours a night, but I have an office job where I do a lot of sitting. Is it possible for me to gain mass on 7 hours of sleep a night during the week and 8 hours of sleep on the weekends? Or is it imperative that I get 8+ hours of sleep?

    It's certainly possible to gain mass on that much sleep. But still, more sleep is better. I shoot for 8 a night on weeknights (don't usually get it) and at least 10 on weekends. If you can get to where you sleep at least 10 a night, look out Ronnie, here comes some mass!

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have seen some mass gain lately, but I can tell that I need more sleep. I have a one year old son, so he is still trying to train me to his schedule. ha ha.
