"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

 

This is one of 93 photos of Andy McCutcheon that are used in The New High-Intensity Training to illustrate the recommended exercises.

Interesting article from NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/...2&ref=nutrition

Also found this interesting, regarding genetic variability:
There is a small portion of the population ? he estimates it at around 5 percent or even less ? who, for what researchers think may be genetic reasons, can maintain their performance with five or fewer hours of sleep. (There is also a small percentage who require 9 or 10 hours.)

I never realized how valuable sleep was until my 2 kids were born. I went through 3 1/2 years of sleep deprivation.

3-4 hours of sleep per night.

I think this is one of those things you sort of have to experiment with yourself. The normal recommendation of 8 hours always left me feeling like a zombie. About 5-6 hours is my optimal time to feel well rested the next day.

The amount and quality of sleep seems to vary among individuals.

Circadian rhythms for humans seem to indicate that most humans do better when they sleep at night -- at least from midnight to 6 a.m.

Decision making is often the worst and fatal traffic accidents more common around 3 to 4 a.m.

Many poor decisions were made overnight at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the Challenger Space Shuttle accident as well as the Bhopal chemical disaster in India.

For several years in my 20s, I worked overnight shifts in radio. After a few years, I just burned out -- physically and emotionally.

In my opinion, the best way to determine how much sleep your body requires is to go to bed at your regular time on a day you do not have to work.

Then sleep until you awake naturally without an alarm clark, or someone waking you.

But I do understand that many on this forum have trouble with sleep because of babies, work, etc.

I have been there too.

Well, if you feel like I have the last several days I would say all day and all night when you aren't twisted in half by pain and other complications.... Thing is, Saturday's workout was really good and in spite of feeling horrible and unable to eat much I have gained weight and feel stronger. And yet I am wiped out.. makes sense but doesn't.

I can imagine that if you can even workout and gain at all while being racked up with this celic crap you'd look like the hulk by now if you didn't have that disease.
