Before starting my polyphasic sleep transition, I’m trying to reach a baseline health level to be able to compare it to. There are 3 basic things that does a body good: exercise, sustenance, and rest. Common knowledge tells us that we need to exercise for at least 30 minutes 3 days a week, eat 3 meals a day, and rest for 8 hours a night. I’ll be doing these suggested values until it becomes routine, then I ‘ll transition to working out everyday, eating 6 meals a day, and polyphasic sleep.
I just started working out again yesterday mostly doing my abs. When I haven’t exercised in awhile and start all of a sudden, my body feels more tired than usual. I’ve been trying to regulate my monophasic sleep to be from 9pm-5am consistently, but yesterday I knocked out at 7pm and woke up with really sore abs.
When I see photos of people showing off their six pack, I always wondered if they were flexing or if it’s just like that. I’ll soon find out for myself. To keep track of my progress I’ll be taking a photo of my mid section before each shower and posting it here.
Things that hinder people during the polyphasic sleep transition are getting sick and feeling tired. Regular exercise before the transition should help avoid those.
