How many of you weightlifters drink beer??
 

 
I was on a steady binge before I got my a.ss together and joined the gym. How many of you drink beer or spirits and how much do you drink? Does it ever effect your workouts in the gym?

alcohol is a muscle builders worst friend. Up to 3 days after drinking "alcohol" your body can be effected. Alcohol is a poison. Used in moderation (1-2 beers) I dont think you have anything to worry about, but if you get drunk, then the next 3 days, you mine as well not even waste going to the gym, because it will be a waste of effort. As a body builder your goal is to reduce body fat, and something about the way alcohol works it keeps you from building muscle for the next few days and causes you to store fat.

Alcohol is a horrible for body builder.

It lowers your testosterone, increases estrogen, and slows down protein synthesis... some people even say it stops it for a certain period too

You've heard of "beer belly," but did you know that beer
itself doesn't make you fat? Beer is relatively low in
calories and makes you urinate more, so the calories
don't build up, making it hard to get fat.
Yet, since sugar is required to break down alcohol
and beer foam makes you hungrier...
When these things combine, you get the munchies and.
..Voila! Beer belly!

I don't know if thats necessarily true. Haven't really researched bear belly's, but to say it's just from eating can't be true.

There are people with literal beer bellys... probably couldn't get like that just from eating.

haven't heard of any super serious lifters ever really drinking at all, I look at it like it has some negative effects, and zero positives, so I stay away

Like Jacc said if you wanna drink take a few shots of hard liquor. I think Michelob ultra is like 10 or 20 carbs. I'd say no more than 3 beers. But then again u just start to buzz off of 3 beers. Unless your just drinking for the taste lol. I don't see a problem in occasional drinking not like your a body builder for a living.

a beer after workout will actually help your muscles regain some nutrients.
If you're serious about body building I would limit it to two drinks maximum I guess, but I know a lot of cats who drink heavily and stay in shape no problem

Beer (1) is actually "healthy". Monks used to drink beer during fasting.... anything after.. you void the health benefits. No positives in liquor.. enjoy your self

Studies have shown that small amounts of alcohol increase muscular endurance and strength output, but, these benefits are very short lived. After around twenty or so minutes, the problems start. All the negative side affects of alcohol fully outweigh any possible benefits it can have to anyone. Alcohol is a toxin (poison) and so a whole host of physical abnormalities can arise.

These can reduce your strength, endurance, recovery capabilities, aerobic capacity, ability to metabolize fat and muscle growth. Alcohol can also affect your nervous system and brain. Long term use can cause severe deterioration of your central nervous system. With short term use, nerve-muscle interaction can be reduced resulting in a loss of strength.

When alcohol reaches the muscle cells, it can cause damage to them. Inflammation of the muscle cells is common among alcohol users. Over the long term, some of these damaged cells can die resulting in less functional muscle contractions. Alcohol will also leave you with more muscle soreness after exercise making recuperation periods longer.

Alcohol has many affects on your heart and circulatory system as well. You may see a reduction in your endurance capacities when you drink alcohol. When drinking alcohol, your heat loss increases, because alcohol stimulates your blood vessels to dilate. This heat loss can cause your muscles to get cold thus becoming slower and weaker during contractions.

Alcohol can cause digestive and nutritional problems as well. Alcohol causes a release of insulin that will increase the metabolism of glycogen, thereby sparing fat making fat loss more difficult. Because alcohol also can interfere with the absorption of many nutrients, you can become anemic and deficient in the B vitamins. Since your liver is the organ that detoxifies alcohol, the more you drink, the harder you liver has to work and the extra stress can damage and even destroy some liver cells.

Alcohol is also diuretic so large amounts can put a lot of extra stress on your kidneys. During diuretic action, ant diuretic hormones are secreted. This can result in heightened water retention and no one who exercises wants that to happen.
Alcohol, although having no nutritional value, also has seven calories per gram so excess consumption can lead to weight gain as well.


Everyone knows that working out while under the influence of alcohol is
dangerous because of the likelihood of injury, but few athletes realize that
consuming alcohol after a workout, practice, or competition can cancel out any
physiological gains you might have received from such activities. Not only does
long-term alcohol use diminish protein synthesis
resulting in a decrease in muscle
build-up, but even short-term alcohol use can impede muscle growth.

In order to build bigger and stronger muscles, your body needs sleeps to repair
itself after workouts. Because of alcohol’s effect on sleep, however, your body is
robbed of a precious chemical called “human growth hormone” or HGH. HGH is
part of the normal muscle-building and repair process and the body’s way of telling
itself your muscle needs to grow bigger and stronger. Alcohol, however, can
decrease the secretion of HGH
by as much as 70 percent! Also, when alcohol is in
your body, the production of a substance in your liver is triggered that is directly
toxic to testosterone
, a hormone essential to the development and recovery of your
muscles.

Speeding the recovery of sore muscles and injuries is integral to optimal
performance. Alcohol is a toxin—a toxin that travels through your bloodstream to
every organ and tissue in your body, thus slowing your body’s ability to heal itself.

Additionally, once alcohol is absorbed through your stomach and small intestine
and finally into your cells, it can disrupt the water balance in muscle cells, thus
altering their ability to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
, which is your
muscles’ source of energy. ATP provides the fuel necessary for your muscles to
contract.


ABSTRACT
The present study examined potential mechanisms for the inhibition of protein synthesis in skeletal muscle after chronic alcohol consumption. Rats were maintained on an alcohol-containing diet for 14 wk; control animals were pair fed. Alcohol-induced myopathy was confirmed by a reduction in lean body mass as well as a decrease in the weight of the gastrocnemius and psoas muscles normalized for tibial length. No alcohol-induced decrease in total RNA content (an estimate of ribosomal RNA) was detected in any muscle examined, suggesting that alcohol reduced translational efficiency but not the capacity for protein synthesis. To identify mechanisms responsible for regulating translational efficiency, we analyzed several eukaryotic initiation factors (eIF). There was no difference in the muscle content of either total eIF2 or the amount of eIF2 in the phosphorylated form between alcohol-fed and control rats. Similarly, the relative amount of eIF2B in muscle was also not different. In contrast, alcohol decreased eIF2B activity in psoas (fast-twitch) but not in soleus or heart (slow-twitch) muscles. Alcohol feeding also dramatically influenced the distribution of eIF4E in the gastrocnemius (fast-twitch) muscle. Compared with control values, muscle from alcohol-fed rats demonstrated 1) an increased binding of the translational repressor 4E-binding protein 1 (4E-BP1) with eIF4E, 2) a decrease in the phosphorylated -form of 4E-BP1, and 3) a decrease in eIF4G a.ssociated with eIF4E. In summary, these data suggest that chronic alcohol consumption impairs translation initiation in muscle by altering multiple regulatory sites, including eIF2B activity and eIF4E availability.
