    It seems that alcohol, weed and other party goods hinders anything on an athletic level....but you do have a life to live outside the training - great you are having some fun bro. Nice workouts.

    Heh drinking is definitely not something i usually do. I tend to go 6-7 months without touching a drink then every once in a while i'll drink a couple weekends. Drank so much this past weekend I probably wont touch a thing until summer lol.

    Dropping down so low may not be a good idea with the new muscle you've added, maybe 180 would be the mark or even 175 if you are not pleased at that point. Either way, good luck cutting down some.
