I have a new laborer on my job site who is a pretty jacked and we were taking about workout routines and such. He was saying that he like to smoke a joint before he lifts because it helps him focus and block out all the other people/distraction in the gym. This conversation reminded me of a guy I used to go to college with who could put up some big weight and he always would come to the gym high as a kite. He said that he felt “stronger” when he was high.
I have to think that smoking pot impeeds progress in some way, but based on the size of these two guys, I wonder how much.
I am curious if there any “evidence” behind smoking pot & lifting weights. Good or bad. Anyone know?
