    Tabacco chew and lifting!?!


    A couple of my buddies chew but also always chew when they lift because they say it keeps them focused. I think its just stupid and am wondering if there is anything about chewing tobacco that is bad for the muscles or bodybuilding in general. I would like to be able to tell them something that would make em quit .

    Eh, if it's traditional chew it's going to be loaded with sugar, which isn't necessarily a good thing depending on your goals.

    I enjoy working out with some Snus in.. It's quite nice, and does provide a bit of extra focus.

    As far as negative effects, it can increase blood pressure, since nicotine consumption will have a stim effect. However, it's not a problem for some.

    I don't think it would have a negative effect on your muscles, but the nicotine in dip is a stimulant and can help you focus. Personally, after heavy squats with a lip in I would probably boot

    Agreed...

    But after a set of heavy squats or deadlifts they're great to throw one in and then go sit in the sauna or shower.... Its a lil slice of heaven

    Carcinogenics of tobacco are something to be concerned with. Nicotine actually has some positive attributes - Chemically Correct: Nicotine
