    Sounds like pull shit, THC doesnt effect your muscles. But if you are trying to get big, smoking will make it that much harder.

    Do you have any studies to prove this affects gains? Smoking pot will pre-exhaust muscles and should not be done before the gym imo. I smoke every night before bed, and all it does is relaxes me and increases my appetite due to late night munchies! I see more benefits from this than downs sides. This is only my opinion, I have no studies except personal experience to back this up.

    studies specific to lifting weights and smoking pot? pretty unlikely. there has been contradictory evidence that smoking pot increases your estrogen levels, but the jury is still out. also, smoking may decrease your o2 levels, leading to faster rise in lactate in the muscles your working out. however thats just my opinion, it may not have more than a short term effect on o2 levels. however i would think that things that dont help are neutral at best or more likely counterproductive.

    I don't think it affects gains at all. I smoke daily for 3-4 years and make good gains, but NEVER before the gym always at end of day before bed! Having said that i did give it up about 6 months ago, just because i felt it was time. But in MODERATION you'll be fine

    when you guys get the munchies do you munch on a chicken breast, or down a protien shake, or eat unhealthy stuff....if i had to guess i would say unhealthy stuff...i dont know though...eating poorly might be a downside, and raising the estrogen levels is a downside...just my .02

    i have smoked daily for about 6 years straight. but, always after workout. i have made good gains, and my sex drive whether on or off cycle hits the roof. so i think the estrogen rumors are bullshit. but, we are all different, so..............

    ummm, pass that bong plz... smoking pot does not increases your estrogen levels. If i can find the study on it i will post it. The only bad effects iv seen from smoking and working out is getting lazy.

    You guys all know that smoking pot, or anything else for that matter, is unhealthy. I see threads on here with people trying to rationalize pot smoking being fine while doing a cycle etc... Be honest with yourself. Pot smoking, while it may put you in a nice state of mind, is not and will never be healthy (just the smoke in your lungs is bad enough without even touching on the effects of the narcotic). And if you are trying to maximize your body's potential, it is an obvious vice that is not doing you any good and most likely is harming you. If you feel like lighting up, have fun. But don't kid yourself into thinking that it's good for you.
