How do you stay on a good sleep sched.?
Depends on what you mean by good sleep.
I'm sleeping 4 times a day, hour each. Feels just fine.
Do you recon it to be possible to have a 7x 30 minutes sleep schedule and still work out to any sizeable degree?
Currently I'm napping 4 times a day for 20 min, sleeping 3.5 hours at night. Diet is not a problem.
Plan is to jog 8 to 10km interval every 5-6 phase, and do muscle separately with free weights, maybe in between every other set of jogging. Also swimming every other day, with some increment in intensity.
Sometimes long distance without interval.
Plausible/lethal? Will my body be able to recover with minimal sleep? Or am I being retarded?
From personal experience, anything besides full 7.5 hours or 6 hours plus 30 min nap, is unsustainable over extended periods of time. Preferably 7.5 hours + 30min nap to stay energetic throughout the whole day.
Your needs may be different of course, but I'd be very sceptical about not getting several complete sleep cycles every night.
Anything right of the "everyman" pattern is nonsensical. You need to sleep for at least and hour or two to descend into REM sleep. To put it in layman's terms: Non-REM sleep will only rest your body. REM sleep will rest your brain. If your brain doesn't rest, it will perform at a less-than optimal level (if it performs at all).
As can be seen on the wikipedia page this graph was on, it's titled "Claimed sleep patterns", which I think, says quite a lot.
Why not try it and see what happens. What better way to know how you feel, how you recover from training, how your mood is, Immune system function, mental clarity?
FWIW, it can be highly dependent on the individual. I know a number of my friends who have 4 hours sleep a night and are just fine, I however don't function well at all, as my wife and business partner tell me!
An example you can look too immediately, is Manu Grewal, (http://forum.a1supplements.com/showthread.php?20828-Manu-s-Training-Journal-Go-Big-or-Go-Home!)
He goes on 3-5 hours sleep a night, is a successful fitness model, Researcher, bodybuilder etc. He's a machine, the exception to the rule IMO,just like my friends, but you might be aswell.
Looking for a pdf of "Powerlifting Basics, Texas-Style: The Adventures of Lope Delk" By Paul Kelso
Any god out there with this book?
It should be in one of these dropboxes. If not, enjoy all the other amazing info they have to offer. Get 'em.
Looking to get an idea of what I should work on and any advice. Just started lifting again after many years off. Any advice would be appreciated.
Get on a diet, you seem kinda fat. It's gonna make it way easier for you to progress in your work out if you lose some weight.
Cut for a while until you stop getting stronger. You'd look way better with less fat
Do you think the majority of adults can benefit from regularly consulting with a psychologist?
Psychologist are like hypnotist. It's entirely dependent on the person. If they feel that the psychologist is helping, or they want to be hypnotized, then placebo will kick in.
However, psychologist have never really helped me through any problem because the entire time it was "You are getting paid, you care nothing about solving this issue" so each session was a waste of money. The only reason someone should go see a psychologist is to get a perspective they might not have seen, but unless they drag it out, that can be done in one or two sessions max.
I had a reaction to a fluoroquinolone antibiotic and all my tendons and joints got completely wrecked to the point of being in a wheelchair.
I think I'm slowly starting to able to walk again after 2 months but the doctors won't help me much and I need to do some exercise to get a blood flow going.
So far I can't walk far it hurts too much, but am trying an exercise bike on easy mode. My knee hurts a bit after but achilles is okay with it.
What good exercises can I do that don't put pressure on joints but get some blood flow going and maybe keep muscles from atrophy? Have to rule out swimming for now.
Also sorry for triple-posting and fucking up posting all over the place. This is actually OP and I completely forgot I posted this here (braindead). It's also in /grim/ now in case you want to know how bad this gets. Trying to do anything after some weeks was a mistake and only created more pain and exhaust precious energy. And creates depression for days.
For the record the only things I'm sure helped were magnesium, NAC and ALA but it's not enough in the end. Maybe they work better while you're taking it.
Hi, thanks for the reply. I was already done with my dose, but I'm sure this will help someone else.
The ankle pain is gone. Still have issues related to the epididmytis. Prior to that I was lifting pretty heavy weights. I'll probably restart in a week or so and start moderately light and build back up slowly to what i was doing.
I live with a guy who had an epididimitys too and neither got healed with the quinolones. You could try another antibiotic instead, maybe CMX. I've heard of well results with it.
This is going to sound idiotic, but what exactly is a 'healthy' sex drive? I recently had a complete physical/blood test. With the follow-up, the doctor was asking me about how active my libido is.
I grew up in a household that demonized sex, and though I never drank the kool-aid, it wasn't until the doctor asked that when I realized that I don't really have much of a sex drive. I figured it was more the fact that I hit 27 last March and I'm not overflowing with raging hormones, but according to the doctor, I should have desires to have sex more than once every couple of months at my age.
However, I have absolutely no frame of reference of what should be considered a healthy libido. The doctor couldn't really describe it to me, other than medical terms (certain hormones were lower than average, etc.) However, I've really grown to prefer not masturbating every day.
So my question is, what is considered 'healthy' and is it really that big of deal to have one?
I know I shouldn't. From 16-24, I had what I assume is a naturally healthy libido (once or twice a day) but that became annoying really quick. (I got shit to do other than masturbate). That's sexual prime when hormones are telling to to stick your dick into anything.
Then around 25, it slowed down to maybe once ever other day. 26 it was like once a week, to once a month, now at 27 it's like once every couple of months.
I figured that was typical. I know sex drives slow down. But with my check-up, apparently it's not supposed to come to a screeching halt like that. The doctor wants to prescribe me some hormone treatment, but I do not want to deal with the sex drive again if it's going to be how it was 10 years ago.
I'm just wondering how often should I want to bone as someone my age.
like every other day
Don't let the doctor reverse slut-shame you. It's weird how we've done a complete U-turn with respect to sex and now you're labelled a weirdo for not doing it. Just enjoy life and forget about your doctor's expectations about your sex life.
