Everywhere i look i seem to come up with different answers. So what are your thoughts? do mid day naps help? or do they hinder? i can get 9.5 hrs of sleep a night. But still get in a 1-2 hr nap pre gym. i can go without it but i always thought sleep equals growth and your test levels are highest when you wake up. Stan efferding(sp?) says no more then a 10 min nap and avoid if you can.
