I have always NEEDED at least 8 hours. It's not quite as bad now as it was when I was younger.
Plus I stay high on caffeine most of the time now.
Sounds like myself. I am constantly pushing myself to stay awake til 10:30-12 at night just so I can have some fun time with my husband. But between waking up at 5:45, working, homework, intense workouts I feel like i could crash at 9 pm. so I hit the caffeine, not a healthy lifestyle.
Watched Sundays episode last night. Never have I ever been so happy to see someone die. I mean I was literally smiling and giggling. I would have loved to have seen him lose some body parts in the process but my blood lust was satisfied.
I've read some pretty cool stories from ancient text of other civs. They all sound as crazy and barbaric as the Bible but that's understandsble. Luckily no one takes them seriously as life guides or truth or wants them taught in school as highly valuable books and moral guides. That would be nuts.
I stretch my lower back out every day and deads still give me trouble. Do those reverse crunch things for your lower back, superman swims, etc . . . I'm thinking I just need to take deads slower and really really concentrate on my form. The thing is, if the weight is too light for me, I want to go faster in voluntarily, i.e., without thinking. E.g., initial sets of 135 I crank out in like 20 seconds it feels. Guess I need to concentrate more.
Anyway, second T25 disc today--Speed 1.0--which was awkward. Not knowing the moves at first can be frustrating because there is no instruction [like Insanity]. Didn't kick my butt, but I assume it will get worse. I won't keep updating after each time I do this stuff; just giving my initial takeaway for those that care to read.
First time I did it I liked it, then I stopped. It made my feet cramp same with Speed 2.0
btw T25 isn't nearly as tough as Insanity. First it's only 25 mins, second even without breaks I just didn't find it as difficult. However I burned almost as many calories doing T25 as I do in 25 mins of Insanity.
