    This research is rubbish. There is more to life than bodybuilding. Unless u are earning a living through bodybuilding then its wise not to drink.i go to gym so I can go and drink and I look splendid

    Really? They had to do a study to determine that a hangover will decrease "peak performance," and worsen reaction time, etc.?

    I found a balance between looking and feeling as good as I can while keeping my sanity and social life happy many years ago.

    I think the overriding point is that alcohol won't have you at 100% and this is probably written for people actively working torwards a recomp. Not only that but the article specifically mentions alcohol totalling 7 and 3 drinks, not a beer at dinner. In fact, he specifically mentions smaller doses having little to no effect.

    yea but a 45% reduction in strength from just 3 drinks is a lot higher than i expected. especially after 12 hours.

    In my opinion and experience drinking a ****load of water throughout the night is key. I drink a lot of hard liquor on the weekends, but I also pound the water. I don't get hangovers because of this, and I never workout on Sunday anyway. I've never become out of shape or stopped gaining from drinking.

    as long as you take steroids you can always remain anabolic.

    That is mostly true although oral AAS and booze don't really mix as far as your liver is concerned.

    I think the only ones that experience a 45% strength decrease are people that aren't used to drinking or lightweights. I know when I go tear it up the night before, I make myself pay the next day in the gym and I sure as hell am not any weaker.

    I wonder if it would be wise to take an AI the morning before night drinking?
