Smoking herb before lifting
Anybody ever tried this? I have. I noticed that my muscles get the lactic acid buildup
burning sensation much faster. Sometimes I get off track if I took too many bong hits and I have
to remind myself to keep lifting. I don't smoke hardly at all. It's just when I do smoke I
still go lift

I used to smoke a few hits before every workout (back in my college days - early 2000's). I always enjoyed it. Personally, it helped me stay in the zone. I would strap on my portable CD fanny pack (I was that guy), crank up some Disturbed, and couldn't tell you anything about anyone around me, that's how much I was zoned in (or out? lol).
I can't do that anymore as I workout first thing in the morning. And smokin' that early would probably hinder my ambition for the rest of the day.

Hey if it doesn't take away from your workout experience then do it.
I've tried it and personally didn't like it.... My workout wasn't as nearly as aggressive or intense and it would be if I wasn't elevated.
I did know a personal trainer at my gym though, a decently huge guy- probably around 190 8-10% BF at 5'8", who did that all the time and swore by it. When i talked to him about it his eyes were beet red and he had just finished repping weighted pull ups with a 45 so i wasn't exactly one to argue with him.

i wouldnt do it before. i would/do/have afterwards though. i would feel weak and tired if i did it before.
For me, the action IS the juice.

It depends how often you smoke/what kind of bud.
If you smoke an indica that wouldn't be smart because it relaxes you while sativas give you energy. Personally it just depends what kinda've a mood you're in. If you're feeling lazy and you need a pickup it can be a good thing but I wouldn't wanna do it before EVERY workout.
Is it really true that it causes lactic acid buildup?

i would think if i was blazed id workout better. i just dont feel safe driving to the gym high. i know when im drunk i have INSANE mind muscle connection and i feel amazing and strong as an ox. similar to smokin but i have a feeling the rest periods might be a little too long if i zone out

Never tried this; most likely never will. I can't see it helping. That **** is for at night, watching movies, sex and listening to music.

WEED imho has helpd me gain sooo much size, thc is a vasodiolator, it dosnt matter wat kind of bud i smoke , it always gets me pumpd and i have great strength while high as well as huge pumps. the mind muscle connection it 100% i never feel as tho im one with my movements unles im high. the only time i have that good of a connection is when i took the one. the biggest thing for me is my appitie increase and the zone im in, nothing bothers me and i forget everything thats on my mind and i just lift, everytime i smoke befor i lift i always have a good workout!
I have studied weed and its effects enough to learn and use weed as a supplement and not as a drug, another way i use weed is postwork out like after hevy squats it takes the edge off and allows me the pack away some food and keeps me pumpd.
and i do understand that smoke going into your lungs is not healthy at all but its my vice im in such good shape that i can smoke alil and it dose not impact in a negitive way but in a positive way. Now smoking every day and in lagre amounts like a dub a day is much worse, its not the weed its the smoke, if yer using a vape evan better for your sake

I should add to my previous statement - at that time, I was abusing marijuana... pretty much high from the time I got up to the time I went to sleep. This lasted for many years. So, the effects of smoking before lifting for me were probably different than those casual smokers who may try it. I was used to the feeling - it was "normal".
It really comes down to personal preference.

i always FEEL stronger when i smoked back in the day, but in reality i was not....fun times though..

Yeah, you couldn't be a casual smoker, and go to the gym. I definitely couldn't do that until I mastered "controlling" my high.
I used to burn before going to the courts, and playing Racquetball. That was the best damn cardio workout I ever did. One day I hit the ball so hard it blew open on impact with the wall.

I've done it a couple times. Worst idea ever. I feel every rep, every set, and every pain that much more. It SUCKS!
I'll leave it for music, movies, and cheat meals.

i agree, it definately makes it harder. you feel every rep more than the next. i usually just smoke after so i can eat all i want, usually NO explode gives my stomach that wierd feeling after i workout so its hard to eat. but if i smoke it makes it a lot easier to eat all i want lol..

It will help you focus and yes be in the "ZONE" along with the benefits of increased appetite
