First I want to start off by saying I don’t think mixing alcohol and weights is a good idea.
That being said, I see it all the time (social media), and I know there are some meets that are tailored to the act, such as “deadlifts and whiskey” or something similar.
Has anyone ever had alcohol HELP a lift? Just looking for any good stories, thought it would be an interesting topic. Obviously alcohol is detrimental to your overall training, but is there any benefit to using it for a lift?
I had a military buddy over, and we were bullshitting, and I decided to try and give my OHP PR a go, and I got it up no problem. I was way more than “buzzed” also. I think the alcohol helped me overcome the anxiety of attempting the PR. In hindsight thought, it was foolish.
Got the PR though, so… hahaha.
