    Marajuana and Weight Training?

    has anybody ever combined the 2?

    is this a big no-no?


    Im not a stoner, just smoke it occasionally, but I find when im stoned I become alot more aware of my body and can focus purely on my lifting instead of lifting while being distracted by other things and not listening to my body.

    for a while iv been noticing iv been getting the urge to train while most people would be playing xbox or eating a multipack of doritos infront of the tv


    i also dont get the urge to over-train or train to failure, or push myself more than i should, something i do far too often when im sober, and then i can easily stuff my face with more than the needed calories after, taking advantage of "the munchies".




    am i committing a major sin?

    LMAO. But it's true. It may not happen overnight, but chronic pot smoking over a period of years will definitely cause gyno.

    These effects are extremely minimal......

    OP I know a few people that swear they can have great sessions while baked. Personally it seems like a terrible idea, when I smoke lifting weights is the last thing I wanna do and I always feel fairly weak when I'm baked.

    I cannot for the life of me get baked and then go lift. On the other hand, lifting followed by a nice baking session = win imo.

    In full agreement here. I am baked almost every night and it has yet to affect my training.

    I had a lot of stomach problems last winter and for a few months smoking at night was the only way I could get in enough cals for my bulk.

    Every study I've seen that talks about decreased test, moobs, etc. had subjects that ingested incredible quantities.

    I doubt the occasional puff on the weekends is going to have significant if any impacts on your gains.

    Besides, you know what else decreases testosterone? Stress. If an occasional joint helps keep you calm, I say go for it.

    I don't smoke pot anymore but did for quite a while. I don't see how it'd be bad for your gains, but yeah, don't get baked before working out. :/

    Weird thing is pot never made me hungry. And I quit smoking because I realized most people who smoke are boring when they're high and even more boring when they're not.

    I'll probably qualify according to you...

    Let me just start by expressing my disappointment that marijuana threads always seem, almost without exception, to be among the most popular threads on the forum...

    Marijuana will do absolutely nothing positive for your training. Yes, it will stimulate appetite, but do you really need that? Yes, maybe you will be a little bit more creative, but how many of us can say that 'what I really need in my training is to be more creative'?

    Not being fully present when I'm stepping out of the rack with a heavy barbell on my back is the absolutely last thing I want to be. I suppose if all you're not doing heavy lifting, and no overhead lifting, then it's probably not that dangerous, but, if that's the case, how productive is your training really?

    JMO. You may now commence with the flaming.

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    I think weightlifting while high on pot is a horrible idea as well... I can't see it being a benefit. Appetite stimulation can help but I don't think smoking when ever you need to get hungry is a healthy habit to get in to.

    A friend of mine did intervals while high. He took some weed oil and we ran. He did quite well but he was so high he forgot all his numbers and how long he was waiting between runs. I think he did more than he was suppose to just to make sure he hit his quota lol.

    Leave pot for jam sessions and nature documentaries I say.

    This is so ****ing ******ed it's almost beyond belief. So, if you eat 3k, you will automatically gain 3k worth of fat or muscle? Incredible. And here I am eating all this food, yet maintaining my weight. Fascinating.

    You're one of those pussies that counts his almonds I bet.

    Pot causes horrible effects like hysteria, anger, and extreme paranoia in people who don't use it.
