In his newsletter, Arnold’s Pump Club, the Commando star explained this through a research that was conducted and wrote,

Arnold Schwarzenegger is arguably the greatest authority on bodybuilding in the world today.

In his newsletter, Arnold’s Pump Club, Schwarzenegger explained the importance of sleep and how it is absolutely vital to one’s health and fitness. Elaborating on an extensive research into this, the Predator star shed light on what he called the 6-hour rule, and how it was instrumental in weight loss and gain.


“A lack of sleep can disrupt every aspect of your health. The study looked at more than 68,000 people and found that those who slept less than 6 hours a night weighed an average of 5 pounds more and were 15 percent more likely to be overweight than those who slept more than 7 hours a night.”

Using this example, Schwarzenegger urged viewers to stop trivializing sleep and give it the importance it deserved as it had a direct correlation to the body, weight, and calories.
