The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Working out hungover?

    I follow the WBB1 routine, so usually my weekends are my days off, but I fell in love with those deadlifts, they are doing wonders for my back. So on saturday I like to do a bunch of em but I like to get carried away on my friday nights and that usually makes for a rough saturday morning. Is it worth working out when your hungover? Would my body not even see any benifits since It's pretty much destroyed from the night before? These arent 'making out with the toilet' hangovers, just usualy a slight headache and some good ol' dehydration.

    I am not sure, but I worked out once while I was drunk. It was a crazy feeling.


    Sorry I could not answer your question.

    Just got back from a slightly hungover workout. I think if you are not hungover bad enough that you dont want to go workout it can't be too bad.
    This seems like the cool thing to do...

    For me, if I've had a couple drinks my workouts are awful the next day. In terms of growth, rest up, a workout won't do ya much good.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I don't know about progress while hungover, but working out while hungover often makes the hangover go away completely. I don't know about something big like deadlifts, though.

    well I faught the hangover and worked out, did my mondays chest/back routine and I would have to agree, I do feel alot better, better enough to go back out tonight. As far as any progress I feel the same after a usual workout, and my workout seemed to not suffer at all.

    But on another note... After you workout I always look alot bigger, all my muscles get nice and defined and buffed looking, but of course the next day or even later that night they slowly go back to normal, whats going on that causes this 'brief buffness' , just curiious of whats going on.

    This "brief buffness" is caused by the increased blood flow in your muscles when you workout. The muscles are swollen temporarily because of this.

    yea i always FEEL better working out hungover.. maybe all the toxins getting flushed out as you sweat..

    but as for actual growth.. like they say, it takes 24 hours before your protein synthesis comes back so..

    Grrrr....


    My friends usually come over and drink at my house and they like to play with my weights and work out while they're drunk. Total pet peeve of mine... The way I see it it's a pretty much guarenteed injury when you're working out all drunk too.

    It would add new meaning to the phrase squat till you puke.

    One set. Puke. OK, we're done.

    Ok, first off, if you are not allergic to aspirin a great preventative for a hangover is to drink several glasses of water and take an aspirin right before you hit the bed.


    Next, when I was in college I can remember a particular night where I drank a lot and got very little sleep. A buddy of mine and I had gone to Tucson from Phoenix. The next day I felt a bit poor and we drove back to Phoenix. I had a bit of a nap that afternoon and hit the gym for legs at about 3-4 P.M. I had a great workout. I have never found drinking the night before to hurt my workouts.

    Now, I am not advocating heavy drinking, I hardly ever drink alcohol at all. I am trying to answer the question given.

    Just make sure you are no longer drunk before you train. The lack of coordination from being drunk could spell disaster!

    Remember that drinking dehydrates you, so be sure to drinks lots of water while working out.

    Like Chris has said, in the past I've never had it hinder my workouts. I recall quite a few SLDL PRs while slightly hungover.
