Nah I been working out for a year and I slowly, but surly developed muscle. Now i go like five times a week. My diet is usually a bagel with cream cheese in the morning, a protein shake, and dinner, whatever that is for the night lol. And if I smoke, a little food mixed in lol.
There seems to be a lot of insightful people in this thread regarding weight lifting and what to do and what not to do while working out. I eat reasonable healthy and lift weights consistently but I do smoke weed. I've already asked my "Getting high" buddies and they don't really believe that it would effect muscle growth. So what do you guys think? Does smoking Marijuana effect muscle growth and hold you back?
Long term use of marijuana can cause decreased levels of testosterone i think. So if you're a chronic smoker then i'd say it would be inhibiting you a bit. Other than that i can think of no reason other than some side effects of pot, "munchies" + lazyness, that would inhibit muscle growth.
