    Drinking, cigarettes, and weed

    I was wondering how drinking cigarettes and marijuana affect weightlifters on gear. Althought i only drink i thought it would be interesting to hear what other substances can do?

    I smoke ciggs...It supresses your appetite I guess, and it puts a lot of chemicals into your body that makes it less efficient I would assume.. Weed increases estrogen levels, Drinking decreases testosterone levels

    cigarettes i'll never touch...i drink on occasion, but not while on oral AS. to me drinking is ok once in a while (maybe once a month), but for the most part it's not really my thing..weed was once my drug of choice, but i have since grown up, and have always seen better results in my training...overall, i think ALL 3 have large negative effects on results..alcohol is quite catabolic, and who wants to go to the gym if they are hungover? to me, i only like to drink if i want to catch a buzz(which is rare)..having a few drinks is pointless to me

    weed raises estrogen levels (correct me if im wrong) but some guys say they smoke a bowl b4 they work out, ciggs will supress tha amount of oxygen supplied to your body (to your muscles), drinking bad on ur liver read what tha guy up there said, not sure except its not good on ur liver

    marijuana reduces o2 supply to the muscles...it's detrimental before a workout

    all the side effects of Marijuana like, suppressed LH levels, increased Estrogen...etc
    occur with heavy smoknig for long periods of time, but some one who smokes once a week or something like that, i don't think he'll grow some boobs.

    A friend gave me a few tokes off a pipe last Saturday while out on the boat. I haven't done that for awhile so it actually felt kind of good. I was being bad last weekend. I had a cheat day on Saturday too. It was Seafair weekend up here in Seattle, the funnest weekend of the year.

    Why the hell would anyone smoke BEFORE they go to the gym? I understand after the gym to relax but before would just be 100%counterproductive.

    i doubt he smoked while training for a mr. o, i think the shot at the end of pumping iron was him just celebrating.

    Some of my best workouts back in the day were when I blazed before. 1 hit of chronic, and an ephedrine pill and I was flying, and concentrated much better on each rep. Many bro's who do this know what I mean. But weed got played out for me, and just grew out of it, still miss it though..

    The most inhibiting of growth of the bunch is tobacco. This is the very worst and can actually place a plateau on your growth potential even with steroids . Next in line is alcohol. Alcohol causes big increases in aromatase emzyme thus bigger percentages of your testosterone will turn to estrogen while you are on cycle. The brittish did a study and found there was no estrogen increase with marijuana contrary to popular believe but there is some LH production inhibition. In otherwords while on cycle it might not effect you but you might want to lay off the weed especially when you are in PCT and trying to get your testosterone production back up to par. All three actually are bad, especially for PCT and can inhibit restoration of your natural hormones when you are finished with a cycle.

    I used to smoke a ton and i found it easier to workout for longer. i dont know if it was that i would fatigue less quickly, or i didnt know i was fatigued. Also, a guy on my track team smokes more pot than anyone i have ever known and hes an all american in the 400m.
