    drinking alcohol

    ok ok now we all know that drinkin beers and workingout dont go togather, but we are humans and love to have a good time. i myself try not to drink at all but living in a college town with all your friends in there 20's wanting to pound beers all nit exspecialy after BIG Texas Tech football games. i guess what in asking is with constant diet and exercise does alcohol really affect your muscle mass. i know im takeing down yest and i will end up dehydrated from the booz not to mention the empty calories your guzzling down.. but having a few beers evry now and then shouldnt be a problem right ??? or wrong ?

    Depends on how dedicated you want to be. Your results can be effected but I don't think a couples beers every so often is harmful.

    i have the same problem with being in a college town but i do a pretty good job of staying away from beer on cycle. I'd say about once a month i'll have a 6 pack or so but then i feel like krap and run extra the next week

    You guys need to relax. I hear people on this board rant and rave all the time how evil alcohol is, I'm not saying you should be a fall down drunk, but can we get real here. Some people on this board make it sound like that if you drink, you can literally watch your muscles shrink and disappear right before your eyes. I try not to drink when I have to train the next day, but I have it set up so that my off days are Saturday and sunday. And I never think twice about drinking on my off days. Jesus Christ you are guys are in your 20's, lighten up; none of you has a contract with EAS or all sport nutrition. And it's highly doubtful that most of you are looking to comptete on the next MR. Olympia competition. I have also heard memebers on tis board make the ridiculous statments that they get more girls than guys who drink, because girls think that a guy at a bar who is not drinking is better than a guy who is. GIVE ME A BREAK. I live in New York, which is arguably the most trendy and Cosmpolitian place in the world. the women here, have the most perticular tastes and standards of any women anywhere. And you cant bet your ass, that when they see a guy who is at a club/bar standing around not drinking, the last thing they are thinking is "wow this guy is the s-hit!". Sure they dont want a slobbering drunken fool learing and gropping all over them, but they also dont want some tight ass pretty boy who is afraid to have some fun, because it might ruin his figure. I take my training very seriously, I very rarely miss days, and I keep a good diet. And I can honestly say, that I get bigger, leaner, and stronger every year. And according to the numerous compliments, and comments I recieve routinely on my pysique, I'm not the only one who thinks so. So I say to you all my fellow juice heads; eat, sleep, DRINK,juice, train, and be merry.

    JohnDoe, word.

    I tell all my friends I don't drink, but they don't believe me cuz whenever I'm with them, I drink...=) I've only drank twice in the last 1.5 months: at a wedding, and when me and some buddies got a free weekend at a golf resort. What kind of turd would I be ruining the good time with my "I'm a hardcore bodybuilder so I can't drink" attitude... For the most part, I don't drink at all though. My gf left a 12 pack in my fridge for 1.5 months and I eventually forgot it was even there.

    My rule of thumb: only drink on cycle if its a special occasion and then don't over do it. Special occasion being friends from out of town, vacation, rare party, etc.

    yeah...

    i just don't drink at all.... even at weddings... i've found that most girls find it amusing and still want my kock, rather then a drunk blubbering idiot at the bar with half my physique.

    that santa claus used to be "jact" before he hit the bottle.

    I think it all depends on your goals. If you're trying to get to the Olympia, then drinking probably isn't the best way to get there. I'm serious about keeping in shape, dieting, and working out, but I like to drink some beers too. I take the weekends off from the gym so Friday and Saturday night I feel free to have a few beers. But Sunday through Thursday I will not drink b/c I know I'll feel like $hit the next day and that won't be good for my workouts. My friends don't even bother calling to see if I want to go out during the week anymore, they all know the story.

    There is a difference between drinking once a week or so and drinking every night. Recently I had a memorial day week/weekend 5 day binge of basically getting really wasted every night and I literally lost 5 lbs and got fatter at the same time. Alcohol effects everyone differently.
