alcohol and muscular development
does alcohol actually inhibit muscular development? i mean besides making you lazy and not wanting to go to the gym? i'm in college and very frequently, i'll come home from the gym, drink my protein smoothie, then a couple hours later start drinking some. most of the time, i only get toasty not drunk...but sometimes i do.
a fem friend of mine told me that getting drunk dehydrates you (and your muscles) thus making you more sore after a hard workout. being more sore is better right? so we should all get smashed after a hardwork out so we get more sore the next day, right?
so i guess my question is: does alcohol in your blood stream actually inhibit the reconstruction of your muscle tissue after it has been broken down?

i read it can lwer protein synthesis by 30%, but only in chronic users. otherwise 1 or 2 beers aday is healthy. franco columbo drank 1-2 beers everyday while training for the Mr. O. (and winning it)

one of the downsides is that is seriously depletes your liver glycogen stores, and results in a usually shitty workout the next day. I actually rearranged my workout schedule around my drinking habits so I can have better workouts on my lagging body parts.
