One night of sleep deprivation decreases treadmill endurance performance
( European Journal of Applied Physiology 2009; 107: 155-161)

Pickett and Morris (1) reported that time to exhaustion (TTE) was unaltered following 30 h of sleep deprivation, whereas Martin (2) reported only a marginally (P = 0.05) significant decrease in TTE following 36 h of sleep deprivation. In addition, the effect of sleep deprivation on pacing is unknown as previous investigations used time to exhaustion rather than fixed end point tests to determine performance. The nature of these tests require that athletes exercise until exhausted, which is unlike most athletic events. For this reason, the authors of this investigation used a distance-based timed test to examine the effect of sleep deprivation on endurance performance.

This study examined the effect of one night of sleep deprivation on pre-loaded, 30 minute, self-paced endurance performance. In addition, the authors investigated how sleep deprivation effects pacing, cardiorespiratory, thermoregulatory, and perceived exertion. It was hypothesized that endurance performance would decrease following 30 hours of sleep deprivation.

In this investigation, 30 hours of sleep deprivation was shown to have a negative impact on pre-loaded endurance performance. Even though the subjects completed a shorter distance after sleep deprivation, their perception of effort (RPE) was the same in both trials. This indicates that the subjects felt like they were working just as hard in the sleep deprivation trial as they had under control conditions. Therefore, it is possible that sleep deprivation affects performance through alterations in perceived exertion.

In addition to endurance performance, the authors examined cardiorespiratory, and thermoregulatory responses to exercise. The results indicated that sleep deprivation has a limited effect on cardiorespiratory and thermoregulatory responses to exercise.

Peaking Strength:
1. Start @ 70/45 kg on the barbell and on the minute for as many minutes perform 1 squat clean; add 5kg to barbell per minute.
rest 5 min
2. Using the weight you finished with Dead Lift it on the minute for 2 reps every minute; add 10kg to barbell per minute.
rest 5 min
3. for time:
50 HSPU on parallettes

post loads and times to comments like this:
1. 130kg
2. 220 kg
3. 10:28 (include height of parallettes)

What depth are we going to on the parallettes?

Interesting on the sleep deprivation thing. I almost commented on this subject on Monday. I had about 2 45 min naps over the previous 35 hrs when I did that training, and then didn't get to bed for another 10 hrs. When this has come up over the last few months, I have noticed I generally do better than I think I will (on that day). Sometimes PR's are set. The only think I think I can pinpoint getting worse is the wattage on short row sprints seems to "suffer". I feel ok, or normal or whatever is expected, but the wattage turns up lower regardless of my effort (or maybe perceived effort?). Anyway, just my observation.

Performed on Thursday, 11/04:

A. Bench press, 5-3-1 (+); finished with 244 for 8 reps


Three rounds for time of:
35 double-unders
25 push-ups
15 CTB pull-ups


Struggled with, well, everything. Also, I was cleared to begin loading squats on Monday, and started a basic linear progression with 3 x 5 @ 45 lbs., plans to increase 10 lbs. twice/week.

1: 95kg
2: 160kg
3: 9.45 to Ab Mat, no paralettes

Not surprising with the sleep deprivation, but good to have the confirmation.

B. 152kg (went up by 20# each min)
C. 32 in 11:30 (ran out of time)used 5" parallettes-too ambious

Drew said...

brian cilento said...

been following a few days behind, we just jumped to real time...
a. 107kg
b. 156kg
c. 5:28 on plates and then head to floor

Brian Gregory said...

10-30 Tester Wod

Task 1 completed in 7:15 (21.5# ball)

20min break

Task 2 completed in 1:54 (170#)

No time for part 3 today may do tomorrow

DU's broke at 18 on rd 2, otherwise UB (felt pretty easy...)
Pt.2 easy also, but hard to squeeze in situps on time.

NW said...

1: 80kg, felt easy but couldn't hit 85kg
2: 170kg, hit 175 once
3: 6:38* Not Rxd. head to plates, about 4" shy of full ROM. PR in number of reps, happy with that.

Deadlifts got heavy quickly towards the end, caught me by surprise.


David said...

1. 105kg
2. 175kg
3. 14:46 on 10kg bumpers, 2"

Got into the bottom with 110kg and sat there for about 5 seconds but tilted forward and dumped.

calebg said...

1. 107
2. 170
3. 9:36 with each hand on 12' box

Hit a wall quick on both 1 and 2 today. Part 1 pulls felt really strong, the catch not so much. Did too much snatch practice yesterday. Should've rested

Stahl said...

1. 115 (pr#1 kg.)
2. 160
3. 11:48 (regular, not elevated)

Notes: happy with PR on cleans, felt good. DL felt really heavy quickly after that.

HSPU - still a weakness, so did regular to get as many strict as possible. Kipped about 12-15 of the 50. Need lots of practice.

Joel B. said...

1. 93kg
2. 130kg
3. not rx'd...15 on parellette 12" high, head down between but not to ground, +10 regular for a total of 25 in 9:26 and ran out of time and had to head to work.

at work 25 hspu on db's not for time.

Brian Maier said...

1) 114kg
2) 193kg
3) 12:53 - not RX'd - no parallettes

Haven't gone real heavy on DL in a while so mentally shut it down.

Spider said...

Squat Clean: 80 kg (landed it cleanly but couldn't get out of the hole)

DL: 138kg

HSPU: 14:31. 12 inch parallettes to abmat = 9 inches below hands

Thought I'd be able to get more than 425 but happy to be able to hit 2 reps @ that weight after all those reps.

Great work today Dawgs!

Arjuna @CFN said...

Anthony Skvarka said...

1. 245 lbs, but sloppy
2. 275 but 1 rep
3. 17.55 depth below ear, guess I should not have been workin on my ring HSPU's yesterday.

Anthony Skvarka said...

Correction on the Deadlift

Stephen B. said...

3.26:53...used what I think were (about) 14" parallelettes...chin below hands every rep...very tough ROM, but I like a good challenge...first 4 UB...then singles...all strict

Steve Smith said...

A. 285

B. 435

C. 8:06 (25 ring HSPU, shoulders to rings)

- Got under 295, sloppy catch
- Called it at 435 for the sake of the back
- No paralletts, so I used rings

Steve Smith said...

PS. Rory "I ran out of room on the bar" Hanlin, you're ridiculous.

Steve Smith said...

PPS. Numbers are in pounds.

dontpanic356 said...

1. 125
2. 184
3. 8:55 no parallettes. used a couple 2 inch risers I found at the gym. Kipped the last 8 reps, all other reps were strict.

Jonathan Thom said...

1. 102.3 kg (225 pounds)
2. 147.7 kg (325 pounds)
3. 35 reps in 25:10 (5" deficit) - first 20 strict, next 15 kip.

Progressed in 10lb jumps for cleans and 20lb jumps for deadlifts Stopped after 325 on the deads because they were getting ugly...probably going to be sore tomorrow. My speed strength > my slow strength. Ran out of time to finish the hspu's. 5 inch deficit (from top of parallettes to where head touched), p-lettes were the same distance apart as from my elbow to my fingertips. Some serious quad cramping going on during some of the more difficult reps.

Even though I didn't get to finish, and it was slow as hell, I am stoked to be able to do hspu's that deep, and strict. A full rom strict hspu on the p-lettes is big goal for me, and I think I'm getting close.

Becky said...

sorry i don't do things in kg. but, lbs. don't mean to be difficult.
squat clean 95, 105, 115, 125, 135, 145, missed 155.
dl 155, 185, 205, 225, 245, 265x1 failed #2

had to be assisted on hspu, on p. bars about 8" off ground. over ten minutes.

I hope all is well with you. Healthline just published an infographic detailing the effects of sleep deprivation on the body. This is an interactive chart allowing the reader to pick the side effect they want to learn more about.

You can see the overview of the report here:

Our users have found our guide very useful and I thought it would be a great resource for your page:

I would appreciate it if you could review our request and consider adding this visual representation of sleep deprivation to your site or sharing it on your social media feeds.
