View Full Version : Alcohol on training

02-08-2009, 08:32 PM

I am a student who before a weekago was drinking once every three days on average. Always kept my training up but last week just gave up the drinking and cleaned my diet up and im feeling good for it (so far).
It is abit of an experiment for me as I do enjoy my beer but am now getting serious about my training. Usually train 6 times a week (cardio and weights) but now going to see if I notice a change with the lack of alcohol and less junk food.

What do you guys rekon? I will try and keep you informed.

Th worst thing to do, IMHO. It sucks all the water from you down to your muscle fibers. I got talked to at the gym one time beforr I knew how bad it was for you. A trainer followed me into the lockers and told me if I wanted to train there, to not drink at all. I haven't touched that **** since.

Is alot of pressure on me to have afew beers at the weekend mainly but got to sacrifice if you want to actually get fitter. My boxing trainer and football coach keep complaining cos im blowing out my arse constantly and have to rely on skill and determination to get through the pain.
Fitness has always been my weakness because of the way I tend to "enjoy" myself too much.
