I have been an avid pot head on and off for about 20 years, not an every day thing anymore but a good 3-4 times a week. I have lifted most of my life with the last 6 years being hardcore.
I have always felt pot was a better way to ï¿½??relaxï¿½?? then alcohol and in a weird way better for my body. I have never been one to get the munchies so it didnt effect my dieting, it actually help to an extent, to chow down the proper amount!
Now that I am at my goal for this year (320 bench for 4 reps, 350 for hammer pull downs, 450 shrugs 145 preacher curls and so on) I am wondering what other side effects (besides the smoke in my lungs) I may have from the weed.
How much does it effect my metabolism?
How much does it effect my recovery?
Ill properly get flamed for this but if you look at what alcohol does to your body I still stand by the weed is better then liquor statement above. Hell, we all have our vices and to be honest, being on call 20hrs a day, 7 days a week takes a hell of a toll on your stress levels, then include taking the time to lift 3-4 days a week, money issues, wife issues, blah blah blah the only true releases I have going are getting under some big asss weight and a blunt here and there…
What do you think? I cant be the only one lighting up!!
