    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    can sleep affect your training?

    i have been doing bagwork and running everyday for like 2 weeks and had great improvements but recently, i feel really tired doing bagwork, and i started sleeping 3 hours a night(normally 4)

    i havent changed anything else so is it the 1 hour of sleep that is effecting me or is it something else?

    i have another kickboxing match in jan. 26 and cant afford to go into my fight being tired, should i consult with a doctor??

    You normally only sleep 4 hrs a night? That's odd to begin with. Were the Holidays stressing you out, maybe? Or you're just anxious about the fight? Work stress?

    Go see a doctor- you should be getting 8 hours, even more at your age. Come back AFTER you go and see a doctor.

    truepwrz, this has already been discussed. Sleeping 4 hours is just unhealthy; three is even worse.

    It is beyond me why you even have to ask if 1 less hour of sleep is going to affect you when YOU KNOW should be sleeping more to begin with!!!!

    If you are suffering from insomnia, go see a doctor (and I hope you find a solution). If you are sleeping so little because you are doing too many things at once, don't be a dumbass and stop now.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    You need 8 hours sleep if you are working out.
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    Yes, sleep deprivation fucks up your training. I haven't slept for the last 36 hours (I blame the gin and tonic) and I can't bloody lift a damn weight.

    Man, I need some sleep.

    Let's say that your body only needs 4 hours sleep (theoretically). During those 4 hours your muscles repair and grow and your brain is taking time out. Suddenly getting 1 hour less is seriously going to hinder these things. You may be one of these people who doesn't need much sleep but even you will suffer when you get even less.

    Dude, what the **** is wrong with you. Turn the internet off and go to sleep. Lack of sleep results in overall low physical and mental performance, insomnia and possibly impotence. Turn the internet the **** off and go to sleep. Why are you only getting 4 hrs anyway?

    4 hours of sleep a day... Are you serious?

    Why don't you just start chain smoking and binge drinking, with a side of a cocaine habit?

    See if any of those things affect your training.

    Are you joking? You;'d think if he is staying up on the internet and only getting a few hours sleep, he could at least READ any number of sources regarding lack of sleep. Or better yet, god forbid open a book... or even go to a doctor regarding medical issues.


    Anyway no way, lack of sleep will not have any ill effects on your practice or the rest of your life. GO for broke, don't sleep at all. (For all you literal types the tounge is in the cheek.
