Anyone else experimented with drinking more?
I know it's a silly question, but provided you rock something like CTD Lab's Liver Armor and chug water, the hangovers are negligible for me and life's pretty awesome. Big as ****, strong as hell, and training like a lunatic six to seven days a week- I've all but abandoned light days.Chief Propagandist and Co-Managing Partner of Chaos and Pain

Definitely a silly question.
I've been downing 5-8 shots of liquor as soon as I get home from the gym at night for the past two months. Not enough to feel drunk by bedtime (tolerance is way up right after a workout... don't even get a buzz off like 4 shots), zero hangovers. Recovery and sleep both somewhat improved.
Animal Pak's got milk thistle, too.

Sadly, my drinking started long before I even knew what a barbell was. I've given up for a while to cut body fat along with APD.
Drinking post-workout is pretty awesome though. I recommend Templeton Rye.

Normally chugging water is more than enough for me. If I ever do mixed drinks / hard cider(which is bomb), the sugar kills me more than anything.
In university now so basically drinking at least every weekend. If I had more money for vodka I'd drink more. I've never felt like the drinking has hindered lifting, but the late nights probably have.
Lol last party I went to I just carried my 5th around drinking out of the bottle. Was Pretty damn great.

I never get a hangover anyway
Currently cutting weight and dieting down hard but I have South Australia's Strongest Man u105kg on the 16th of February and I am 30kg underweight lol. Competing on the 1st February so will probably try hammering back vodka post workout in between these dates to see what happens

No, not really. I just drink because I like to drink. I'm under no impression that I'm doing anything good, or bad, for my training.

C'mon @Magdalena aren't we all doing it? (Just kidding, I rarely ever drink, I'd rather eat 4000 calories in wings and chili)

Did I ever drink in excess? Hell yeah!
Did I do drugs? Hell Fu˘kin yeah!
Did I at any point get told, read or even think it was a good idea? Hell no!
All the kids getting into working out these days, on top of all the kids into partying are going to see this as a green light... Fu˘kin genius!

People are gonna look at OP's avatar and assume it's ok to use gear (orals too) and drink in excess. I really don't think that high levels of testosterone combined with drunken rage and beast like strength is ever a good idea. Before I started lifting I drank everyday and used lots of drugs and got into tons of trouble, ended up in the ER a few times and all the vomiting gave me GERD so I'm not a big fan of alcohol

If you're stupid enough to drink to excess while taking oral steroids long term you deserve to die

Personally I drink whenever I feel like. Pretty often after a great workout me and my buds will go grab a bottle of scotch and take swigs outside a roast chicken place.

I think it really just comes down to controlling yourself and being capable of monitoring how your body works and responds not only to the alcohol but also the habits you tend to employ during periods of alcohol consumption. When i get high, diet tends to go to **** even though it isnt directly the weed so i know if im cutting i can't be smoking, whereas i can have a drink or two without blowing multiple days worth of calories. I also tend to take some sort of liver support year round, other than that this is my take on the subject :P

I've experimented with alcohol pre and post workout. I have on occasion consumed vodka + ec pre-workout and every time I do it I have the best ****ing session of my life. I read somewhere that before a certain threshold the stimulant effects of alcohol are greater than the depressive, so I aim for a BAC of about .04 to .06. Every time I drink post-workout, as long as I drink enough water I'm also never sore. Alcohol seems to have the opposite effect on gains than people usually assert. I read a post by Alan Aragon where subjects who consumed alcohol vs. those who didn't maintained the same weight + muscle mass, even though the rest of their diet was calorically equal. It appears that as long as you train, alcohol isn't a bad thing - it could even be beneficial.
