    what's worked for me has been forcing myself up like an hour or so before i have to be up and slamming a gatorade or one of those vitamin waters and going back to bed, then when i do get up making sure i eat a bunch and drink a bunch of water. if it happens on day i'm supposed to lift i'll push it back to the evening. still hurts you at the gym though

  3. Beer Study


    Yesterday, University scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer. Men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption. The theory is that beer contains female hormones (hops contain phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into women. To test the theory, 100 men were fed 8 pints of beer each within a 1 hour period. It was then observed that 100% of the test subjects:

    1) Gained weight.
    2) Talked excessively without making sense.
    3) Became overly emotional.
    4) Couldn't drive.
    5) Failed to think rationally.
    6) Argued over nothing.
    7) Had to sit down while urinating.
    8) Refused to apologize when obviously wrong.

    No further testing was considered necessary.

  5. Talking


    Im not proud to say it but i am in college so give me a break, but i do smoke marijuana daily and still have a 3.7 gpa have 9% body fat and a nice figure with gains that just keep on coming. Are there any negative effects on training associated with marijuana? (besides the bull**** of lack of will and all the other bs things everyone says that haven't effected me over all of the time ive smoked)

  6. if you get blazed it sends your test through the roof for a short period of time and then to way below normal. if you just take a couple hits it raises it and keeps it up without the sharp drop. i like it lets me up my calories by like 2000 a day haha

    vitamin water seems to be the one thing that works for most people but since alcohol inhibits the metablolization of glycogen (basically carbs) would eating bread cause more significant fat gain?

  7. stay the hell away from prohormones or anything that is metabolized by the liver if you drink otherwise you are gonna be up a creek bro

  8. I found taking a multi, or a B complex before drinking, and taking one with a ton of water in the morning helps alot.

  9. alchol does no good for someone trying to get fit or cut up

    6. Alcohol lowers testosterone
    7. Alcohol increases estrogen
    8. Alcohol consumption is catabolic
    good cliff's notes. there's lots of in-depth information on-line showing how alcohol affects the body, particularly gains.

    the key is moderation. sounds cliche but many have yet to grasp that concept and apply it effectively.

    probably, and you'll feel AMAZING for 5 minutes before you die

  14. Although, low doses of alcohol do seem to raise testosterone - at least acutely. Moderation is the key.

    Testosterone increases in men after a low dose of alcohol.
    Sarkola T, Eriksson CJ.
    Department of Mental Health and Alcohol Research, National Public Health Institute, Helsinki, Finland.

    BACKGROUND: Heavy acute alcohol drinking decreases blood testosterone in men due to an effect on the testicular level. An acute increase in blood testosterone levels after a low alcohol dose has, however, recently been reported in women. The objective of this investigation was to study the effect of a low alcohol dose on testosterone in men and further elucidate the mechanism behind the effect by using 4-methylpyrazole, an inhibitor of alcohol metabolism. METHODS: A double-blind placebo-controlled interventional crossover trial in random order (n = 13). RESULTS: After intake of alcohol (0.5 g/kg, 10% w/v), an acute increase in plasma testosterone (from 13.5 +/- 1.2 nmol/liter to 16.0 +/- 1.6 nmol/liter, mean +/- SEM; p < 0.05), a decrease in androstenedione (from 5.1 +/- 0.4 nmol/liter to 4.0 +/- 0.3 nmol/liter; p < 0.05), and an increase in the testosterone:androstenedione ratio (from 2.8 +/- 0.3 to 4.2 +/- 0.4; p < 0.01) were observed. The effects were not observed during pretreatment with 4-methylpyrazole (10-15 mg/kg orally), which inhibited the ethanol elimination rate by 37 +/- 3%. CONCLUSIONS: Alcohol intake affects the androgen balance in men through an effect mediated by the alcohol-induced change in the redox state in the liver.

  16. i know that alcohol decreades alotta of things and affects gains, but sometimes i see some huge ripped mo fos and i wonder how they do it when i see them chuggin down! lol i have my drinks when i go partying, but i do ok with maintaining.

  17. On beer a night, everynight, isnt too bad is it?

    and about the mary jane issue, i think its hilarious. I dont have much time during the day to eat alot with 2 jobs so i use that as a way to eat more later in the day. The only problem is getting good calories vs empty ones.

  18. i've read ONE drink will help relax your blood vessels and depending on what you drink, (e.g. wine) it may have more health benefits. any more than that is said to have a negative effect.

    i can't drink. i don't have any self-control and i love getting hammered. i'm real with myself. the last time i drank i had 8 cups of whiskey on the rocks. i haven't drank since then. the most i'll do is have a small glass of wine. that's where it stops tho

    Yeah my motto goes as follows "party hard or hardly party? i think we all know the answer to that question" And well i party hard from there. But right now i'm in a state where i need to focus more on having fun, once i get through some **** maybe i'll go a little lighter on the beer.

  20. my "partying hard" lasted from 17-19. my craziest year had to 18 and by 19 i had already begun contemplating on cutting back on my partying habits with the intention of eventually bringing them to a full halt. the people i used to hang with had a "live for today" mentality and i eventually adopted it for a while until i realized i was parties wiling out saying to myself,"what am i doing?". i did some crazy stuff though so you can know that i'm not just talking about drinking. drinking was not even a big deal lol. some people i went to hs with are doing the things i was doing when i was 18 cause they're 21 now. i've been 21 since i was 18 so i look at them now like "been there, done that." know what i mean? i don't look down on anyone though and i don't judge either but i know what's my thing and what's not my thing.

    live it up while you can because everyone grows as a different rate but one thing's for sure: as you grow older, you start having less and less valid excuses for things. phrases like "i didn't know" are countered with "how did you not know!?". lol
