Well this was nothing really important more so just curiosity. I have studied sleep cycles (only a BS in psych, nothing special) and understand how that can help with optimizing sleep. I was looking much simpler and bigger picture, essentially how much sleep is needed for the body to properly recover. I know my own body, I honestly need about 9hrs of sleep to feel fresh throughout my day and still have a highly effective workout without feeling completely drained. Im a lowly cat3 cyclist. I have found some pretty cool studies on how the body recovers during sleep in this search though.
Just really curious if there was a correlation (loosely defined) between the amount someone is active and the amount they sleep. One would think yes, just was curious if there were any studies on anything similar to this.
