But there are mornings when my eyes are red and my breath reeks. I may shake alittle and strength training is last thing I want to do. Fortunatly I do not drink as often like I did 30 years ago. It just hurts too much. Strength training is my highest priority now. Drinking to excess does impact my training. On the days that I train I want to be enthusiast and EXCITED. That won't happen the day after St. Patrick's day. Alcohol leaches away your strength. On days when you train you should not ever feel the effects of alcohol. On training day you must be OPTIMAL physically and mentally. A head full of booze means a wasted day in your training. Make your PRs count in weights lifted - but not the 12oz curls. I drink on Fridays only (except for St. Patty's day)..h
    I don't think so because if you drink occasionally then it is not affect your training at all. You can enjoy drink with healthy food at dinner time sometime aslo.

    In my opinion one glass of whiskey can't do any damage, but if you want to exercise more frequently than you should keep that to minimum, especially if you are seeking for fast results...

    Just to finish off here, there's no doubt that alcohol adversely affects my performance personally. I find that even one or two drinks will make my workout the next day really bad. Personally I've decided to give it up, as I've also lost my taste for it to be honest. I guess I'll save money lol.

    When you acknowledge that even one drink affects your training, and decide to give up drinking altogether - thats great! You have your priorities straight. Yes you will save money too..hehe!!...Dennis

    Lol I THINK it does. There's really no way to know for sure since I can't split myself into two realities and see what happens to Eoin if he decides on path A or B. My instinct and experience thus far does seem to be telling me that a little alcohol isn't good before a training day though. I might get away with it if I have a rest day or two after, but I have to believe it adds up somehow.
