The Sleepless Elite
I don't encourage this lifestyle and I am definitely NOT in this category of people.
However, this article from Melinda Beck in the Wall Street Journal was interesting about the functioning habits of "short sleepers". Amazingly, some people can accomplish a lot on little sleep.
At the end of the day, our bodies are generally very good at adapting to what we train them to do. But everyone is different. When I think of myself, I know I need a good seven to eight hours each night.
Studies repeatedly have shown that maximum amounts of sleep also help benefit training. So, don't be among the "sleepless elite" and get your sleep.
