Howmuch sleep is optimal during bulking? I have a hectic schedule where i work 40+ hrs a week sometimes...and all i can seem to manage is between 5-7....would 7 be good enough?

This is an individual thing and depends how fast you get into the deepest form of sleep... REM (Rapid Eye Movement). I think it has been found that those who enter REM fairly quickly require less total sleep than those who take a long time to reach this stage.

If you are recovering between workouts and able to progress with your lifts in the gym, then i'd say what you are currently getting is fine

petedw said it best, but generally a minimum of 7 hours is good. Then again you have guys like Jay and Dexter only getting five hours a night

Smokers need an extra hour. I imagine that people who drink would also need a little bit more . . . a lot of people have mentioned that when they are leaner, they need less sleep.

okay thats good because i am probably around 7% right now..veins on my upper abs/back...legs...etc...and i recover faster than i know what to do with my workouts, lol. I try to get no less than 8 meals a day and probably closer to 10 on average, so I think that also helps

I need ten hours, especially when training hard.

If you look at REM cycles, the cycles don't get any deeper/longer beyond the 9hr mark, so really sleeping more than 9hr's isn't really beneficial.

As long as I need, varies from like 7 some days to 10. Sometimes i take naps though and that makes me sleep less later in the night.

I used to preach the whole 8 hour minimum thing...
once i got used to 6 hours or so... i'm actually more energetic and feel less tired.
been sleeping around 5-7 hours for the past 6 months or so... from the way i feel, i wouldn't want to waste anymore time sleeping. it's shitty enough that i have to spend 9 hours at work... need some time awake and enjoying life :D

It's quality of sleep time. I often feel shitty with light sleep over an extended period of time versus a 2hr power nap in middle of the afternoon.

Aother factor is SLEEP APNEA. A lot of bodybuilders suffer from this sleep disorder due to the additional mass they carry and increased neck size. With this condition you wont get restfull sleep unless using a treatment option such as a CPAP device. So if you suffer from sleep apnea you will not get a lot of REM sleep and even 8 hours wont get you fully rested. Sleeping on your back makes it worse so sleeping on your RIGHT side will lessen it and therefore give you better sleep.

I have severe sleep apnea and it sucks. I am only 248lbs 19 inch neck, it sucks.

i love getting 10+ a night, but its a rarity for me.. i usually get anywhere from 3-7 hours a night during the week, then 1-2 days a week i get upwards to 10-12. when i get 3 hours a night im a little tired, but im still able to progress in the gym.. so.. its an individual thing.
