    Well......beer isn't the best option for building muscle. It lowers test levels, and GH and increases estrogen.

  6. Alcohol is also either 7 or 9 calories per gram if I remember correctly

  7. So is it ok to drink liquers once week?

  8. Everything is ok to do man, it all comes down to how much and how often, I'm not saying I am for drinking, as I am not. But it will not hurt you if you drink socially once or twice a week.

  9. ok tnx man, im affraid it will vanish all my supplements...

  10. it comes down to what you are doing this for, if you are trying to compete then beer is not a great option but if you are shooting for a lifestyle then a few beers here and there wont kill you. so it comes down to where you are at in this game

    I heart Beer(Guinness FTW)

  12. lol beer is good on occasion mostly social events with the family, mostly rare for me but i do enjoy it now and then

  13. i think beer is gd for bulking i can finish 20 bottles whish like likely 2500 calories..

  14. i can drink 20 beers too and be really really messed up

  15. I cut it complete out of my life, I feel the effects even 3 days after when im in the gym. If it effects your weight time negatively then erase it if it works for you then do your own thing. Its personal preference.

    That's sad. You need liquor to have fun. There are a billion threads on alcohol and bodybuilding. Binge drinking is probably the worst thing a person trying to add muscle could do. It does the opposite of what you want and what you take supplements for. It hinders your bodies ability to absorb nutrients,hurts protein synthesis, and dehydrates you to name a few.

    Same here. Best personal decision I have ever made for my health and fitness.

    It's not sad, being a social drinker is perfectly fine my friend, join the party.

  18. some of yall take it way too extreme. Everything you do is about moderation. If you enjoy beer and liquor every so often it will not be a big deal. A glass of win is full of antioxidants and is proven to be good for you in the long haul. So i feel drinking is fine in moderation while working out. Lifting is a new life style but should not take over you life.

  19. Man I love my beer. Having a fit lifestyle doesn't mean you have to cut EVERYTHING out that hurts you in the long run. if that was the case better shut down that steroid/PH section.

    Condescending to someone because they enjoys some beer, while you are logging a Methyl explosion of a log is just asinine. Not pointing fingers, just saying.

  20. Everything in moderation, I just happen to feel like i got kicked in the kidneys the next day if i have even 3 beers. Its all personal preference.

    Being a social drinker is fine, but if you you can not have a good time without alcohol then that's an issue. It does make a good time better though,haha. I agree. Everything in moderation.

  22. For the love of God, live a little. I used to be extremely anal and view drinking as merely excess calories, but, in hindsight, I probably missed out on a good amount of fun. I usually drink every weekend 1-2x and I know that it does not positively contribute to my aesthetics, but it has little impact inside the gym.

  23. Im only 19 and im a recovering alcoholic haven't dranken alcohol in a year and a half

    It's great not being sh it faced all the time

  24. I drink on my resting days (weekends) once or twice a month, usually on a friday. By monday I am good to go. I also alternate the muscle groups I work on earlier in the week to offset the negative effects. I drink pretty heavily, usually mixing beer and liquor.

  25. i f/ucking drink! pour a couple shots in ur protein shake & blend all that sh1t up with ice is great! especially with that after workout smoke

    i prefer holding of the smoking for after work outs now, its so much more enjoyable

    i remember when i use to do bad mon styles w/ a ciggarette hanging out my mouth while me & my boys spot each other with blunts in rotation.
  26. Beer


    Even though I enjoy a beer every now and then with my friends beer and body building do not mix. Beer is nothing but empty calories and does nothing for you but takes away gains. Plus if your on a cycle you should never drink because most chemical compounds are methylated and already harsh on the liver but mixed with alcohol can be dangerous.

    Amen to that! Some people are overly strict when it comes to alcohol! I enjoy craft beers every once in a while, so I'm not going to cut something I enjoy of my life just because alcohol temporarily decreases testosterone, protein synthesis, ect..

    Now I do avoid getting drunk, but a few drinks every once in a while isn't going to hurt anything in the long run, unless maybe you're dieting for competitive bodybuilding. It's apparent that alcohol and bodybuilding don't mix, but some people go so far to where it's just plain funny!

  28. I drank and worked out for the past 4 years. It effected my gains but I was ok with it. I was in better shape than if I wasn't working out. Right now,I am not ok with alcohol effecting my gains. It's all about what you want. If you want to look good then drink! If you want to look above average and possible compete in a show then drinking heavily shouldn't be done.

  29. Guess you could say im anal about drinking, it really comes down to what you want to do, and how it effects you. I dont drink because my body wants to kick the crap out of me the next 3 days. Its all personal choice, there not going to be some guy popping out of the woodwork every time you decided to enjoy a good beer.

  30. I LOVE beer but the 2 do not mix.

    If you enjoy beer like I do then you should drink some. However, if your #1 goal is bodybuilding then you should have some water instead.
