Ok, as you guys know Im quite a "controversial poster". Having said that, Id like to specify Im not a wheed (marijuana) user, maybe thats the reason Im writing this post.

I got really interested as I found out my sparring partner smokes a spliff every day at night. The guy is 2 time Brazilian Amateur champion and trains daily.

He guarantees me it didnt affect his stamina in no way . He drinks rarely and doesnt smoke cigarettes, just a happy cigarette at night before bed time.

What do you think?

Ive wondered about that as an amateur boxer, because I don't really drink alcohol and I don't smoke cigarettes but smoke weed sometimes and i think it is probably bad for cardio though if you train hard and do plenty of roadwork it might not be too bad.

I don't think it has as much of a physical effect as it does mental. Its about commitment and that is not going to help you win fights.

lol.. i smoke very often and i fight pro here in mexico... i also did while on my amateur career... i rarely drink and i dont smoke tobacco but i do smoke a joint very often.

Also i am friend with plenty of mexican pros, one which its a national champ and even one world champ and i know for a fact that they smoke too.

I AM NOT SAYING ITS OK OR THAT IT DOESNT AFFECT PERFORMANCE i am just stating facts here.

Well i smoked weed for 5 years from when i was 14-19. im 20 now and i havent touched it for awhile... I noticed it's not all bad! theres pros and cons to smoking pot and training hard. the pros: that you can smoke a joint if you feel that your routine is starting to get boring and suddenly its alot more fun. also, if you don't eat properly pot can help you eat! it kept me energized because i ate more. It helps u get rest even if it feels too early. Good sleeps.. which helps rebuild muscle. The cons: Lungs!!!! u really need lungs when you're in a fight! this is the only con i can think of because i didnt have a lack of motivation like people try to say happens when u smoke pot.

anyways hope this helps! its all for reals.

why not just eat it in the form of a brownie or cook with it weed is an herb herbs are meant to be eaten not smoked, smoking is terrible for your health

Since it's burning you are also breathing in carbon monoxide which is not good for your cardio or general health.

lol, weeeed isn't a performance enhancing drug, it kills your memory and motivation...if someone is a good boxer on weeed, i think they'd be a great boxer off weeed.

i'll add to the discussion that smoking is an inherently toxic delivery system
there's just no way to get around the fact that it is not good for you.


your lungs will be better off without weed smoke

marijuana does not contain any carcinogens (cancer causing agents,)
it does, however, deteriorate your athletic and vascular performance


in time, the strain on the lungs and build up of resin will diminish with the stoppage of smoking with marijuana, whereas the tar in cigaretts contains stuff that causes cancer and destroys lung


if you're seriously perusing boxing you should stay away from drugs an alcohol. they hurt your performance, and boxing is about being your best

There is no way it can be good for your body. It might make him THINK it is because of the release of endorphins and what not but thats the exact effect the drug can have.
