  1. Great clip. The only tweak I'd make is how much sleep you need and especially in terms of gains. Getting barely enough sleep to function won't optimize gains. I've found Ben Franklin's "early to bed, early to rise" mantra works best. I go to sleep about 9pm then wake up around sunrise ike clockwork. If you're not waking up naturally you're not getting enough sleep and actually shortening your potential lifespan. Cheers!
