"Lights Out" really woke me to the importance of sleep. There's a slew of negative effects as a result of messing with your internal clock. Often times, this is one of the most overlooked areas of health and fitness.

Haven't read "lights out", but is the biggest issue the release of GH for tissue repair? I know it said that 75% of our total GH comes during the first 3 hours of sleep between 10-1am. I imagine messing with our natural bio-rythms for sleep only diminishes the amount of GH, lessens the anabolic part of sleep and increases the catabolic effect. Just guessing.

No, not really.

Tissue repair occurs in the absence of GH. Albeit a bit more slowly.

Exercise response in those with panhypopituitarism is a personal interest of mine. There's not a whole lot out there though.
