How much sleep does your body require if you exercise? 

It is recommended that the average person receive at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep. However, most people get less than 8 hours mostly due to their hectic lifestyle or they may not have that much time to invest in sleeping. It's important to note that when exercising your body needs as much time as possible to regenerate, build muscle and recuperate which is accomplished by getting enough sleep.

Since we are in the midst of the Winter Olympics, have you ever wondered how much sleep an Olympic athlete requires? I have heard that they require about 10 hours of sleep to maintain peak performance.

My recommendation is that you get as much sleep as you can or that your body requires. And remember, you cannnot catch up on missed sleep but you can catch up on missed work.
