Go ahead.. Get it off your chest.

I'll start.

I think Madden sucks.

I also thought Duke Nukem Forever was a good game.

Maybe it should be immortalized in a keyboard key cap - would you like it then?

I confess that in my ripe old age (36 this year holy crap) prior to my starting Far Cry 3 I often felt too tired to game and the BLOPS2 tourney felt like a freakin chore.

Thankfully Far Cry 3 has brought me back from the dead so to speak. I've played until 1am two nights in a row! Most of you young'uns will be like..."pshhh, weaksauce!" But in terms of gaming, that's kind of an accomplishment for me these days. laugh out loud

Jeeze,

I was up to 11:00 two nights in a row this week and it's about killed me. (I'm 36 too)

I'm 41 and rarely do I fall asleep before 1am on weeknights. I also work a PT job until 10pm 3-4 nights a week so my 'decompression' from work doesnt really start until then. Back up at 630am to get my daughter ready for school and on the bus. I've just never needed 8 hours of sleep a night.

wow, that's impressive. I'm generally up at 6am, handle breakfast for the baby and at the office by 8 - 8:30am. Done withmy day around 5:30.

Our 16 month old is asleep by 6:30pm and then I'm at the gym by about 7pm (4 days a week). My decompression begins at the gym but I'm home relaxing by 8:30pm.

The last two nights, sleeping at 1am, caught up with me and it affected my lifts last night.

I find that when I sleep poorly my gym sessions aren't optimal in that I dont recover enough and it leaves me feeling weaker. For example ramping up sets last night (3 warm up sets plus 3 working sets with increased load on each set) on the bench and worked my way up to the 6th set @ 195 lbs (it's a "light" week). I should be able to do 9 plus reps with this weight on the 6th set but was only able to grind out 7 reps and didnt even attempt the 8th because I knew I was going to fail on the 8th rep anyway. Somehwat disappointing but at least I know exactly what the culprit was.

Went to sleep at 11 last night though as I gotta do squats tonight.

EDIT:

(just thinking out loud here) I just realized I reduced carb intake immensely this week as well....that might be the bigger factor or at the very least a contributing one. hmmm...

I think "squats and oats" is his new dubstep beat.
