Donating Plasma/Blood


Wasn't sure where to put this, but...

Is it possible to donate plasma and/or blood while weight lifting? I am aware of the general repercussions of doing either of these, but how does it effect your lifting?


yes you can
and it does not effect lifting
if your diet is in check you will reproduce the plasma fast enough where you wont notice it.

just time it where you donate and then have a rest day after you donate,I do and I am fine

remember lots of lean protien and lots of water,which you should already ahve in your diet.


I do it, and have lifted upper body that night with no adverse effects, making sure that I eat and drink enough and do not attempt max effort.
