    the importance of sleep?

    I've been getting 6 hours of sleep each night this week. I feel a little tired when I wake up. Is this going to have adverse effects on my training and muscle development??? I'm eating right still....
    thanks

    It could. Deep sleep (REM) is when your body repairs itself. Usually 8 hours is the recommended minimum, but some people can adjust to less hours.

    I have nothing scientific to back this up but I think sleep plays a huge part in gaining muscle. Whenever I have a bad workout I blame it on either
    not enough sleep
    not enough food
    not enough recovery time

    6 hours seems slim, try to get more. I usually get between 6-9 hours myself, and it's a constant battle to try to get more for me.
