T Nation

Weed N' Iron

A while back, I got to talking to one of the guys at my gym. Some background on this guy- pretty serious intermediate bodybuilder guy working towards doing doing his first comp soon. He talks alot of crazy shit about upper colonic irrigation and crazy dieting stuff- so I take his ideas a couple grains of salt. Anyhow- we got to talking about weed. His opinion is that reefer suppresses testosterone production and will cripple your progress. While I there’s a lot of reasons to not be high- especially while lifting big weights- I am alittle skeptical- sounds like 8th grade health class propaganda. Anybody here ever heard anything like that?


If you don’t want to read the whole thing just scroll down and read the section on T and drugs.

Have a good one and lay off the reefer, son!
