i cant help to have a drink everyonce in awhile. how does it effect my cycle ??
it disrupts protein synthesis. your body is more concerned with ridding itself of the toxins you're pumping into in than building muscle.
depending on what you're referring to by the wording of "cycle" ie juice or ph's i would strongly recommend not consuming alcohol at all while on them especially if they're ph's of the methylated variety as they're hard on the liver. Not to mention alcohol causes liver swelling/cirrhosis so on and so forth.
define 'have a drink'. i have a beer or two when out with friends, which may be like once every two weeks. if you mean sh!thouse drunk and can't stop after two, then no, just avoid it completely.
X2 what Beelz said. An occassional couple of drinks shouldn't be an issue.
Bump on this though as it is a good question. I think that there are alot more "fitness enthusiasts" using PH and gear than actual "bodybuilders" (Anyone who surfs the web forums will likely agree) and it is something that should probably be discussed at length. Most of us know it's not wise, but many also have a fondness for the grape. If an intelligent middle ground can be found anywhere, I would say it is on this board.
I was given a piece of advice about 3 or 4 years ago from Nullfidian when I inquired about alcohol when running a 4 week 4AD oral stack. He said "If you can't go 4 weeks without drinking, you're probably an alcoholic and should reconsider any PH use". That hit home for me and I have never combined the two.
What specific stack or cycle were you on?
