    Don't be a smart ass. You made a fully quantifying statement about beer being negative. No way around it, but you didn't do your own footwork and educate yourself before spouting off non-sense.

    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.

    Well I don't think nofx4001 had having a couple when he was asking if there were any benefits. I never said beer is negative. I said drinking heavily is negative. I have have no problem having a beer or two on occasion.

    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...

    Sure but then you're going to suck at being an alcoholic and suck at building muscle. Why not just decide if you want to be a really good alcoholic or really good at building muscle?

    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 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.

    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)

    I read some where that your strength is reduced significantly up to two days after a binge. I know when I workout the day after I drank,I'm just not there.

    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 don't see how that would be possible, seeing as the carbonation would certainly dehydrate you. i mean that's what a hangover is... Dehydration, caused by alcohol. Now a glass of red wine a day, is good for your heart. But a b33r after a workout, can only be worse, blood pumping faster, and metabolism on the rise...

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