Marijuana's impact on training
 

 
There ars some cases that demonstrate no negative impact on training from thc.

1) Mike Tyson tested positive for marijuana immedeately after knocking out Andrew Golotta.

2) Bruce Lee ate weed brownies often and is arguably one of the best f!ghters of all time.

3) Supposedly more than half of the nba casually uses marijuana.

4) Ricky Williams won the hiesman trophy and was a competative nfl rusher, having tested positive for marijuana on more than one occasion.

Personally, other than the cardiovascluar impact of inhaling smoke, I see no harm in smoking weed (not cigarettes). On the other hand, I sometimes feel like I don't lift as hard after a night of smoking.

Does anyone know if there is any direct impact on you physically from thc?
I know that alcohol can cause drops in testosterone levels because of zinc, is there anything similar with weed?

I train with weights and also in mma and i love smoking weed. Any input is appreciated.

all i know is Tyson ended up a joke and one of the biggest dissapointments of the sport

Lee died early

the NBA has gone downhill from where it once was

and we all know the Rickey Williams saga..............so I suggest if you really want to be in peak physical condition stay away, I mean its defenitely hindering you in some aspects somehow, its only gonna benefit you to stop

there was a topic about this on the Muscle & Fitness mssg boards last week, there are some hardcore lifters with a lot of fitness knowledge on there, and everybody agreed that it won't do any harm for a responsible person.
A weak person who has to smoke everyday, who's no.1 priority is smoking won't go far in lifting, but the casual once or twice a week smoker can lift just as good as anyone.

^^ I second 5ive micz.....occasionally probably won't effect you but if you're a regular smoker it surely isn't going to help you in the gym..........and i'd like to see people eat CLEAN after they get those munchies

that's probably never gonna happen, nothing like a bag of chips or a burger when having the munchies

yeah weed doesnt really affect you whilst lifting but the thc stores itself in you fat cell.

"increases rapping skills"
-thats some true sh*t cuz whenever me and my boys freestyled and recoreded dat sh*t we'd always be like "why can't we say all this hot sh*t when we don't smoke?"

Not sure which part you wan't me to prove.
It is a known fact that lee ate hash brownies. Accounts come from students who visited him. Steve Mcqueen got him into it and he talked about it in his memoir.
As far as being one of the greatest f!ghters of all time, He revolutionized the martial arts world and was said never to have lost a f!ght after he started training in Wing-chun under grandmaster yip-man, who was an opium user.

to the guy who said marijuana is an estrogenic substance, what do you mean?
does this mean that I can expect a drop in test levels after smoking?
If so, why and how does this occur?

Also, ricky williams didn't take steroids, there is no proof that tyson did (he had some of the best trainers boxing ever saw) and bruce lee was very buff, not skinny as hell. If you think he looked skinny, it is because it is benificial to a f!ghter to be somewhat lean, not like a bodybuilder who is big for the sake of being big.

While on the subject of bodybuilding, Arnold used to smoke weed during the peak of his career, there is a famous video of it. I know he was on roids but what impact if any did weed have on his hormones?

About increasing rap skills... hell yeah it does.
According to Unbeleivable, a very credible biography of the Notorious B.I.G.,
Every single track biggie ever recorded was conceived and recorded under the influence of marijuana.

nah man, try bench pressing while your high. If you can then props to you. I put up about 200 in my sets and I notice my reps drop after smoking the night before.

Some things are all in your head, but when you are on drugs it is definitely a detriment. I have smoked blunts every day and still lifted alright, but i still think its a detriment to training. I would just like some factual evidence of the impact on the body.

well it does effect you especially if you smoke everyday....smoking prohibits oxygen flow to your muscles making it harder to gain....but if you do it like a couple times a week it shouldnt make much of a difference

and the weed probably didnt effect bruce lee because he was just eating it not smoking it

bruce lee's death had nothing to do with the thread though. He still was a formidable f!ghter and had incredibly fast reflexes in spite of using marijuana. Let the debate continue.

i smoke, then workout or workout then smoke...been doin this for years...as long as u go in there focused and not a light weight laughin every 12 seconds, ull b fine..me and my boy smoke blunts in the parkin lot, then go in, well use to, cuz its really a waste of a high cuz u come out sober, but i still might smoke a j on the way there...i even had a convo with a trainer about it, he says its ok as long as u dont go and pig out cuz getting high DOES raise the level at which ur heart beats, so u are burning more calories than when ur sober

yeah i have heard people say you can lift high, but i've never tried it.

Still, i know there must be some health explaination for what marijuana does to your body just like there is for alcohol. props for any information.

For the people who lift high, how much do you:
Bench?
Squat?
Curl?

The 'Arnold smoking vid' is Pumping Iron, he's seen after he wins Mr Olympia for the 6th time smoking a joint.
He pretty much says in the making of it that it was staged, as were many other things in that movie, which is why it's a docu-drama and not a documentry.
He probably did smoke, a little, I doubt he puffed regularly, as for a bottle of red wine every night, I doubt it's possible to sustain his physique by doing that, even if it is, at his peak he was devoted to perfection, I'd seriously doubt he'd be jeapordising it by drinking and smoking exessively.

When i stopped smoking weed i noticed i had more stamina and was able to do more reps of a desired weight along with more sets....While smoking weed, i was unable to even finish workouts some days cause i would be exhausted..I noticed improvements regarding my physical abilities in the gym about 2-3 weeks after i stopped.

But if its jus to improve yaself physically then you shouldnt stress bout the weed
LOL thats an oxymoron.....to invest time and money in a gym with intentions of improving ones self physically, while (at the same time), smoking weed, which of course decreases your overall health (mentally and physically).

I guess what im tryin 2 say is you'll have greater success if you just take it easy on weed. Im not sayin quit cause not even i have went that far...just take a little break and focus on your goal. If you cant do that then ure lacking dedication which is one of the most important factors that can get you anywhere in life. The other is hard work. Combined nothing can stop you from reaching a desired goal weather its improving your physique or becoming a pr0n star (my lifelong dream) :D

Anyway take it EZ.
