My situation is this: I just graduated college this past June, and I am working for a law firm as a paralegal. I get a decent enough base salary, but I also earn time and a half for overtime, so I like to take every opportunity I get to work that overtime and earn the extra cash (I have many, many student loans to pay off). I understand the importance of getting to work on these loans earlier so I can free myself from that debt, so I am committed to that.
Now, to bring it back to training, I have been training in the early morning before work to make sure I have the time to get my lift in, and also be available for the overtime. My question, as it relates to sleep, is if it is more important on a night to get my sleep and miss a lift in the morning, or if it wouldn’t matter to go on 6 hours of sleep or so and go to the gym.
I guess I’m probably going to get lots of answers from guys who only get 6 hours of sleep a night if they are lucky, and find ways to train, which would be good news, but do y’all think that my strength and growth will suffer (significantly) so that I should make it more of a priority to get 7.5+ hours of sleep than to train as often as possible?
I hope this all make sense…
