My job requires that I wake up at 3:30am, yes, the middle of the fucking night!
Now my body has pretty much got used to getting up and sleeping at like 19:30 - 20:00, granted, I'm half asleep and have to resist sleeping on the floor/ anywhere for the first 3 hours of my shift, but I manage, just.
I'm wondering if there could be any long term detrimental effects to waking at such a ridiculous time, considering the internal clock that ticks within all of us, will my body fully adapt to my forced sleep cycle? Will it screw up my hormones and muscle building potential?
Cheers lads and lasses.
