    Not on my machine.

    I have to look when I get home.

    I remember crickets, waterfall, rain, ocean waves, thunderstorm.......and I think that is it.

    But the one I have is not exactly expensive, my kids got it for me on Fathers Day but it certainly does the trick.

    WHAT MAKES MY RECOVERY BETTER

    Training Frequency
    For me the four day split is better than five day. I wish I had come to realize this sooner as this is the one part of recovery that is most noticeable for me.

    CPAP Therapy
    This is a game changer for me. Prior to CPAP therapy I was constantly tired and it did effect me in the gym along with everything else in my daily life.

    Quality of Sleep
    I wear a FitBit watch and while it is not perfect at everything it has been very reliable and I use it as a tool to determine what helps me sleep better. Based on my results seven hours is the minimum sleep I need. I can tell you I have found sedatives not to be as good as you may think for the reason below.

    Type of Sleep
    I may be over simplifying this but my FitBit monitors three types of sleep, REM, deep and light sleep. REM sleep is for your brain and deep sleep is for your body and light sleep you need in general. I know if I get 1 1/2 hours of REM and deep sleep each along with 7 hours total sleep I am going to have a pretty good day at work and in the gym.

    Growth Hormone
    When I am off GH I do not sleep as well, I do take breaks with GH and when I do my sleep suffers somewhat.


    WHAT MAKES MY RECOVERY WORSE

    Alcohol
    Pretty much a no brainer

    AAS
    Not so much test but most everything else causes sleep that is interrupted. I know everyone would agree tren does this but even NPP causes my heart to race at night. Any orals seem to do the same and interrupt sleep....for the most part. Best ancillaries that do not interfere with my sleep are probably primo and mast.

    But any high dose is going to throw me off with sleep, best way to cure this is lower doses, it works for me.

    T4
    Anything over 50mcg causes sleeplessness. I will admit that doe not stop me but I do it foe short durations when I bring GH up to 20ius a week for fat burning.

    Overtraining
    I experienced this early this year as I was on a cut and honestly I needed to train hard to get where I needed to but my sleep suffered. It was hardcore lack of sleep for four weeks and eventually subsided for the most part but this is where you have to find balance.

    When I sleep
    When I go to bed at different times it does interrupt my ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.
    You know that really has me thinking with the version you put up with the type of sleep.. my sleep apnea hasn't been too bad compared to what it is when I'm on certain compounds especially Trenbolone.. But now that I'm taking this new sleep Med I don't know if I have issues or not because I'm knocked out.. my wife is telling me I'm snoring pretty loud but that's a good indication for me that I'm sleeping but that's also a bad indication as well...
    More and more I think about this topic I know I need to go to a clinic but the last time I spoke with them it was going to cost me a lot of money out of pocket, and believe it or not we have Superior Insurance.. unless there's something I can do differently?

    Sleep studies are done at home now.

    You simply pickup the sleep study machine at the sleep center, take it home and wear it that night and then return to them to assess. Let me see if I can find what we paid, I do not remember it being expensive and our insurance is shit.

    I have the ResMed Air Touch 10 CPAP machine and I think you can get it for a grand these days. It is self titrating so you do not have to get adjustments made at the clinic, those days are over.

    Like I previously said you would be amazed what a FitBit tells you about your quality of sleep and how I have found AAS really messes with my quality of sleep.

    EDIT: Just checked and average at home sleep study is $150-$500.

    Not to derail thread, but Skip is right. The sleep study I'm doing will be a home one. Insurance companies prefer home ones since they're cheaper.

    The wife and I are about to head out the door in a moment I just checked back to see if you replied.. I'm going to inbox you my dude soon as we get back and pick your brain apart if you don't mind...
    And like I said my dude they wanted to knock us over the head with the price.. money is not an issue but at the same time I don't have it like that to just drop, I'm more of a hoarder than a Spender.. but if I'm going to drop what they were asking it better be worth it..

    This is how far I'm behind on this topic, I had zero clue that you can do the study at home now.. in fact that would be great to have it in my own settings because I have rituals..

    Let me hit the grocery store and then I'm going to private message you my dude

    Haven't posted here in a while but great topic..
    Recovery is such an important topic I can't resist.

    Key factors of recovery is to balance muscle breakdown and repair.


    1. Training
    *Timing of training is important. Better to train once you had a couple of meals in you.
    *Training a muscle when it's properly recovered. If your overly sore after training your waiting to long to train that muscle again.
    *If your not sore at after, it's possible your training it too soon.

    2. Try to minimize the breakdown of muscle for energy during workouts.
    *Easily digestible protein and carbs about 2hrs before. 1TBPs of peanut butter to limit insulin spike
    *Quick digestible carbs and EAAs 30 min preworkout
    *Intra workout aminos and possibly added quick carbs.

    3. Maximize recovery
    *Immediately post work out, Protein and fast digesting carbs
    *1-1.5 hrs after training have another high protein meal. Amount of carbohydrates will be dependant on time of day.

    4. Sleep and rest
    * muscles and system can't recover if you don't rest.
