I just read here on T-Nation that smoking marijuana reduces testosterone. I've been training for about a year now starting at 81 kilos (178 lb) and today I am 99 kg (218 lb) and I've kept about 18 - 20% bf.
I can tell you for a fact that I have smoked weed every single day if not multiple times a day during this 1 year of training. I've more than doubled my strength as well. One thing though, NEVER have I smoked in a day before training, always after.
Does anyone else have experience smoking and training? Maybe someone smoked and then quit, were there improvements? If I wasn't a smoker, would I be 120 kilos right now?
Smoking is a part of my life, but the gym is much more important. So far I haven't found any really concrete info to discourage me from continuing. The article I read was vague as well, who says that weed decreases testosterone? I hope somebody can give me some good info
