    bodybuilding and alcohol

    Hey guys. I was just wondering if regular alcohol consumption negativeley effects strength and muscle gains from your workout.

    Is it a bad idea to hit the gym after a night of heavy drinking?

    Over and over again.

    Regular moderate drinking won't hurt you. Regular excessive probably will

    It's all a matter of your own goals and values.

    As far as hitting the gym after a night out - it again depends on you. If you can train hung over, go for it. If you can't, well, that's one more training session you miss, which is one more training session you aren't getting closer to your goal.

    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
