Maybe I'm a freak, but honestly, that keeps me up, at least for another little bit, then I'll be quite tired.

Man, I can definetly relate, university life ain't easy, and even when you get time to sleep, sometimes you've been so busy you just can't... like right now, haha. Honestly, I always watch something on my computer (TV show, or whatever) before I go to sleep. While going to sleep, imagine things, don't think about sleep, honestly, when I go to bed I think about boxing a lot, and things to do, and not to do, and change, or whatever, and eventually I just fall asleep. Hope that helps,

Peace,

P.S. The whole warm milk thing isn't an urban legend, if that's an option you wanna pursue too

its only been getting worse man last night i couldnt sleep till 12:30 today i cant even sleep at 1:30 and im noticing my days are worse and worse as i go like yesterday i couldnt focus at all i was just too out of it and got whopped in sparring, im really concidering taking a day off school and rest the whole day! even though i already have took 2 days off this semster, would you guys take a day off school if you really needed the rest and even though you already took 2 off would you take a third off and take the ****ty side of it and make up a days work of homework in exchange for a days rest?

Now in university, no one cares if you skip or not, basically you **** yourself over as they say. Haha, I **** myself over all the time. My train of thought is that if I'm too tired, I'm not really bein' productive anyways, so I'll take the day (or at least the morning) off. You don't wanna get sick man. Missing your morning cardio? Ok, crappy, but how bout missing a week of entire training because you were sick? Now that's ****ty.

Pretty sure warm milk is sick yo!! :puke: Not so sure bout wankin off either, that usually makes me really hungry haha. Sleep is good, I listen to music...nothing else puts me to sleep but that, it has to be the right music to. Granted I work on 5-8 hours of sleep..sometimes less haha.

I dream about the next time I get to eat a chick-fil-a chicken sandwhich...true story.

Well, its depends on what your taking. If there are classes that are easy for you and you know you wont really miss much..**** it. In my history class exams are taken from NOTES only. So, I dont give a **** if im passin a kidney stone..ima be there! Unless a friend helps me out. But sure if you think you need to rest go for it.

haha I heard that! For example my english lit. class. All we do is read ****..and discuss it. Thats easy and hell...so iv skipped some. But, we got 3 papers due so thats the hard part. Although it helps when you have had the same professor 3 times in a row :P IMO, check out your syllabus see if it says what yall are doing on that day or the week. Just so that you know what you might be missing. Alot of professors will give their students a detailed outline for the semester (atleast all mine have). Really helps out if something comes up and you gotta miss...you can just study and be at least half prepared.

I couldnt fall asleep until 3 then when I woke up at 7 to do my roadwork, I fell back asleep before I could even roll over to get out of bed. Then I slept in past my class because I didnt reset my alarm.

Bad way to start the week.

There are any number of explanations for disrupted sleep patterns. Is there any chance that you could see a physician who specializes in sports medicine?


In my experience with young boxers disrupted sleep patterns usually come about from two problems, either over-training or under-scheduling. The body can only take a limited amount of training so it is silly to push too hard. Excessive training can not only result in physical injuries and exhaustion, but weird psychological problems. Today most people are ware of the dangers of over-training, but there isn't the same awareness of under-scheduling. To get maximum efficiency from training it should be done on a regular daily (and weekly) schedule. Not only training, but meals, rest periods and sleeping should be scheduled. This may not sound too exciting, but it has been proven long ago that scheduling produces better results. The body's metabolism likes to work in predictable patterns, and scheduling makes it more efficient.

Force yourself into a schedule, after awhile it will just become a routine.

I have trouble sleeping too. Sometimes I dont fall asleep til 12:30 and then wake up at 2 then 3 then 4 then 6 then 7 to go to school. No matter what I do i will get hardly any sleep. I drank warm milk, didn't work. I pushed harder in my workouts, and I got tired, but couldn't sleep. I took days off of working out, couldn't sleep. I stayed consistent with a schedule, and its been working, but in a different way. I still can't sleep, but I feel better with being on a consistent schedule. I am very sleepy during the day, but come time to box I get pumped and I get a very good workout. There are certain things to do if you want to sleep more and workout better. If you want to sleep more, you shouldn't workout everyday. **** what anybody else says, you want to listen to your body. If you feel tired, don't work out. But don't be too inconsistent either. I mean don't workout for a day or two, not until you feel better. People will say "You need to workout daily" but how can you workout daily if you can barely stay awake standing up? just rest. To workout better, you have to say **** it, no matter how tired you are, give it your best. Even if you got an hour of sleep, if you really want to, you can work out good. Willpower overcomes physical power.

The only reason I can think of why you can't sleep good, is stress. And if you take days of workingout off, and don't get a good workout, then deep inside you truly don't want it.

Not to be rude or anything, but how do you know what another man wants deep down inside? Stress is everywhere, some are harder than others. Everyone is different my friend, taking a off a day or 2 from working out doesn't mean you truly don't want it, it means you need a break lol.

No i dont mean taking a day or two off to rest, but looking for excuses to take a day off and not go to the gym. But i'm just saying that people who truly want it, will make excuses to go to the gym, even when they're tired, hurting, etc. Because if you think about it, if you really wanted, you would go no matter what, I've never heard anyone say, "Damn i really wanted to go but I was just too tired." But that's just me and about a hundred other people I know. So don't get offended, this is just my opinion, Im not saying I really do KNOW what another man wants deep down inside, just what I THINK he wants. You're entitled to your own opinion too.

Oh ya man, I wasnt offended hehe. I just thought it seemed like you were assuming to much of people. To be quite honest with you, iv had days when im beat to hell, and I dont go lol, and there are days when im beat to hell and I go anyways lol. ****, I went from dam near 290 to 230 and I cant tell you how many times I skipped lol. Its not making excuses, it's working at your own pace. But I understand where your commin from :P So people do make alot of excuses, but thats on them, I worry bout me, myself, and I. Skippin or not...I will drop weight.

We all got opinions :) I sure do enjoy talkin bout them thats for sure!
