Pdiggity, not everyone who enjoys a couple good drinks isn't a 50 year old dad easing the pain of growing old. lol. Why can't you have a couple drinks and leave it at that? You don't have to answer, because it's not about your personal preference to be a lush whenever you decide it's your drinking day. If we're talking about health factors and a solid, vital lifestyle, don't intoxicate yourself. Ever.Freedom means nothing here.

Notice, I said "for your physique". Coffee is also the number one source of anti-oxidants for Americans. Does that mean it is the best source of anti-oxidants? Man you gotta work on the whole condesending thing. You present a lot of critical viewpoints without anything constructive.

Enjoy life, if you like to go out and get your drink on every now and again, have at it. To get back to your inital point (that usually gets diverted from because everyone wants to be a smart ass, or a one-upper) getting tipsy one time a week is not going to make you grow man boobs, or sink your testosterone. If you are drinking, my best advice is stay away from eating a XXL pizza at 3 am.

You can get results exercising and still drink now and then, I'm not going to argue that one. When you're ready to get serious about it to the point where it becomes a lifestyle and not just a few good things in a few aspects of the whole package, then the drinking stops.

ya work will definitely change your workout routine! haha
but if you have free time now, im glad your taking advantage of it, just be sure to rest well and not over train. Personally i would take a day off and not lift anything, or maybe just do cardio.
I'm not sure about your goals or current situation, but if you eat right, and lift right, it will take care of most of it, then cardio can help drop weight & burn extra calories if needed.
I agree with nevergoodenough too. Heck maybe you'll live to be 120!

i dont think it is the actual alcohol that detours training, its definently the XXL pizza u eat drunk at 3am like neverenough said. i have noticed there is relavence to this in peoples arguments, they dont factor the poor eating habits while drunk

Saturday night is my designated drinking night. However, before I go out, I make sure to have 2 servings of Poseidon and 1 before I go to bed. Unless I drink a ridiculous amount, I do not have a hangover the next day. Sunday is the only day of the week that I don't train, so I use that as my rest/recovery day.
I probably drink more than most on this board, but I make sure to have a strict diet, training, and rest routine the rest of the week. It's pretty much my treat to myself for a hard weeks work.

a bunch of worthless carbs and sugar, and that while my body's busy processing it all, my liver is too distracted to metabolize fat.
It makes me not want a drink.

I must've HONESTLY been 5% bodyfat while using speed. It doesn't mean I was in great shape. My confidence was high and a ton of women would be talking to me and that definitely boosted the ego, but what does being in good shape mean to you?

I think like some others have said you have to decide what your goals are. If your dead-set on looking like a bodybuilder, then obviously drinking won't do you any good.
However there's a balance in life, and if it's all work and no play... are you really enjoying yourself? I think you should let yourself have a night of drinking here and there. I know tons of guys at the gym who look ripped and drink beer regularly! Just avoid eating tons of food late at night, and maybe try drinking on an empty stomach so it doesn't take as much to get you to the drunk point you want
Enjoy life, it only happens once. The girl won't care if you put on 0.1% bf that night, or that your bench is now -5lbs. All that matters is that you met her.

good to know every1s insight on this matter getting drunk with friends is always a good time, working out during the week makes up for it to some but just remember.. in life not to take it too seriously no one makes it out alive..
