Literalistic fear mongering is extremely annoying, especially when it is completely unqualified.
I commend you on your own life decisions, but the candor toward the opposite is quite something.
So to sum up... having a couple beers does have benefits.... debate over.

I generally only social drink, but when I am training hard for a meet or something I usually cut it out completely.
Anybody that says you cnat have fun without drinking, well they have obviously never been the sober friend laughing your a** of at the stupid stuff all the drunks do. LOL Sometimes that itself is more entertainment than drinking, atleast for me...

It could be a rumor like anything else, but I heard Arnold and all of the bbers from the 60's and 70's use to drink beer for that specific reason.

I love my Soco and Root Beer mixed, i drink once every weekend... i have noticed no ill effects from when i quit drinking a while back and lifted. Okay in moderation, but i have no plans of going back to Mr. One-Bottle-a-Night-Marine anytime soon... bad bad mojo.

i cut out drinking for about 6 or 7 months, i built up my 5rm bench press to 280 pounds. and i included it in my chest routine. i recently went to my girlfriends family party, and got completely tanked. i took the next day to recover, and the day after was my chest day. my 5rm was reduced by 30 pounds.

if you don't drink beer, then you're not a man...discussion over!

My .02, taste the beer, don't just drink it. Most beer drinkers that binge 1-2x per week usually are the ones with no abs. I'll tell you this much, as soon as I cut out all alcohol, I drop weight quick and I am more responsive at the gym. But I will tell you this, I do enjoy my beers every now and then, and I gotta be honest, I too indulge every once in a while! (blackouts)

Congrat's on being sober !
Supplements, like alcohol can become addictive, its all moderation. I'd like to find the bastard that coined the phrase "social drinker" and smack him in the head.
I enjoy beer and a good lifestyle. I'm just into supp's for the fitness part, I don't make a living building my body professionally. Ever wonder why all the fans at a game get to drink but the guys playing don't ? cause they do so afterwards. The dart team I'm on sure can pound them down, these guys are pro's.

its good to see soo many diff opinions on this sub. i drink maybe once a week only get drunk maybe once or twice a month. i know its going to slow me down in reaching my goals but theirs a line i draw at some point to where having fun is more important. i agree alcohol isnt needed for a fun time but it makes me loose and lets me enjoy life more.

theres a study that says drinking 1 to 2 beers after your workout hydrates you better than water does. not sure if it's 100% true, but it's interesting

I'd love to see the report tho, interesting read.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...cientists.html heres the link about the study, nothing overally scientific but proves there was a study and from what they found was beneficial. no "scientific" information tho

no worries man, no bashing taken. ya im pretty skeptical of this as well but what they describe seems somewhat plausible, still i will never do it

Lol it is an awesome article though.

Beer increases estrogen I think, I basicly cut beer out.
