INTRODUCTION: Several studies have shown the effects of exercise on sleep; however, a limited number of studies have examined the effects of sleep upon exercise. PURPOSE: The primary purpose of this study was to explore the effects of sleep upon different areas of exercise performance. METHODS: Participants were 4 males and 1 female between the ages of 19 and 22. Subjects participated in the same test regimen on two separate occasions, the first having 2 hours of sleep, the second having 8 hours of sleep. Testing consisted of VO2max, vertical jump, curl-up, and pushup tests. Each test was performed at the same time of day for each trial and subject. RESULTS: The mean VO2max (ml/kg/min) for 2 hours of sleep was 49.5 (SD=6.5) and 48.14 (SD=6.6) for 7 hours of sleep. The mean vertical jump (in) for 2 hours of sleep was 17.8 (SD=3.0) and 19.9 (SD=2.7) for 7 hours of sleep. The mean number of pushups for 2 hours of sleep was 23.4 (SD=13.3) and 31.6 (SD=11.0) for 7 hours of sleep. The mean number of curl-ups for 2 hours of sleep was 38.4 (SD=15.1) and 82.4 (SD=76.3) for 7 hours of sleep. CONCLUSION: Based upon these results, sleep does not affect VO2max, vertical jump, pushups, or curl-ups. Future research should include a larger number of subjects.
