Sorry for the cutoff but i meant to say "if you workout on a friday and take supps, how detrimental is drinking later that day?"

Well most supplements wont hurt you if you drink on them, unless of course they are methyls...
But honestly whats the point if your going to spend money on supplements to reach a goal why impede your progress by drinking? I mean don't get me wrong the occasional drink wont hurt much but twice a week why bother with any supplements they wont be doing much?ForeRunner LabsThe Future of Human Performancehttp://anabolicminds.com/forum/pics/229429-my-fat-mess.html

What "supplements" are you referring to, specifically? If by "supplements" you mean methylated PH/DS, you're not doing your liver any favors by drinking while using. Drinking isn't the healthiest sport out there, but there are plenty of arguments that suggest certain amounts of certain types of alcohol can be beneficial for a few reasons. Refraining from drinking, altogether, is probably the safest route but the occasional drink while on "staple supps" is generally harmless. By staple supps I refer to branch chains,, proteins, PWOs, etc...
Getting wrecked a couple of times a week seems a little excessive, on the other hand and seems counterproductive to an individual who is willing to spend money on supplements designed to help you reach your maximum level of fitness and overall health.

I think that if you drink while taking ginger it can cause an adverse reaction...
Hit me up with any questions any time.

This is a tough question to answer as you didn't provide any background info regarding what you personally take. The term "supplements" is an incredibly broad statement but some could be risky to mix with alcohol while others would be completely irrelevant. If you were referring to more-so dietary supplements like whey,, etc, then it's less than likely to have even the slightest adverse effects. Performance supplements, like strongly caffeinated pre-workouts however can pose the risk of heart problems as you are mixing two potent uppers and downers together. While I don't know this for certain, creatine has a tendency to cause dehydration which is obviously not your best interest during a long night of drinking.
I wouldn't go as far as to say "don't use supplements on days you drink" (with the exception of PW's), but I'd more so question the point of using supplements if you are going to willingly prohibit yourself from seeing results getting tanked all weekend. Your diet should be clean before you take supplements in the first place but if you're already neglecting a good chunk of your recovery time then why bother spending loads of money on supplements to get that little bit of improvement when you're already depriving yourself of so much already? What it ultimately all boils down to is asking yourself what your priorities are and judging by the question you asked it is apparent that they're a bit out of whack.

Drinking occasionally isn't an issue but getting hammered twice a week is definitely an issue. You should consider not taking supplements bc you won't really get the full benefits from them. You should really consider taking some time off the bottle while taking supplements.

Alcohol has been demonized unnecessarily. In moderation, it promotes fat loss via AMPK activation
The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES
