Compromise Between Sleep And Weight Training
I'm relatively new to Bulletproof but it's been always my passion to optimize whatever I do. One thing I'm working on right now is finding a compromise for gaining muscle mass while sleeping as less as possible (without affecting my health). What got me thinking was Dave's comment on the relation between weight training and the amount of deep sleep needed.
But let's see how I can structure my ideas more clearly:
Goal: to find the amount of weight training and sleep I feel best with
- Quantify the critical factors like daily calorie intake, workout intensity, amount of (deep) sleep
- Set monthly goal for muscle gain -> calculate how much effort is needed based on workout variables
- Find out how I can calculate the amount of sleep needed based on workout variables
The last point is where I'd be grateful for your help: I was wondering what science knows about the relation between how many calories we take in / how intense we work out and how much sleep we need.
Thanks for reading!
