The answer I’ve always heard repeated is that alocohol will essentially inhibit your body’s production of GH for up to 48 hours. SOOOO, any training you’ve done the past few days, that your body is currently recovering and trying to makes gains from, will be for naught.
I seriously doubt that drinking alcohol will mean you have no results from the training from the previous few days, or even after.
Plenty guys drink to get drunk many nights of the week and still make progress - some of them half decent. Your age will be a factor too, naturally. Alcohol will have a bad effect no doubt, but unless you are getting absolutely wasted every night it’s not going to make a HUGE difference. Studies may say this and that, but I’ve seen more than enough people who don’t give a shit about their diets make plenty progress in the gym.
Everything in moderation.
