    just go you pansy and have some mild self restraint and nurse it. Shots arent as bad as beer either.

    Not that I can heed my own advice cause I cave every time...

    You'll just waste your time at the gym, maybe if you do some HIIT cardio instead of your normal workout you could minimize the damage.

    Recovery is key. Massages, epsom salts baths, foam rolling, sleep masks, contrast showers, it all adds up. Get a foam roller, The Stick, a tennis/baseball, use them and stay healthy, pain and injury free.

    IMO, drinking just on weekends isn't all that bad for gains, though it does some damage, but I NEVER drink on day that I lift, so that's why I take Friday and Saturday off from lifting. Alcohol will screw up the recovery process, so it's not a good idea to go out drinking on a day when you lifted. Just suck it up and have a good time tonight, but in the future plan your workouts so you don't drink the same day you lift.
    But the solace lay beyond the darkness
    In a land where light and life dwell
    Yet soon will come death and the numbing fires
    Only then will my mind lie to rest

    For I am alone on this world
    Enslaved and surrounded by the living dead
    Yet still I stand tall as I bleed
    Deep from within the cuts upon my skin

    enjoy

    drinking and working out. when i lived in england my life revolved around the pub, and there is no way i could train the next day after a session. my advice would be if you have not got a competition looming, don't get out with the lads much anyway have a couple of days off training, forget about the gym and enjoy yourself. have a few beers a good laugh, a nice rest the next day. it will do you good. if you get lucky and you have had a few beers though get a second opinion from one of your mates. its hell sneaking out of a house at five in the morning then realising you haven't got a clue where you are no money in your pocket, and the supermodel you took home amazingly transformed overnight so you really can't go back and knock on her door. and you were bothered wether to train or not. good luck mate.

    Drinking on a hangover day. I don't lift Fridays or Saturdays (but I may do cardio) and never drink during the week, but I work out on Sundays. Of course it's best drink without getting hung over the next day. I know how to drink so I get a good buzz going but will not be hung over the next day.

    alcohol completely stops protein synthesis, so until you have all the alcohol you drank cleared out of your body, FORGET ABOUT NEW MUSCLE.

    The above statement/post does not represent the opinions of anyone in real life. This is the internet. Not real life. Anyone who cannot grasp the difference between the two lacks the basic intelligence necessary for survival and should not be allowed to form opinions.

No differences were seen in Testosterone and other related hormones in either group. Cortisol was elevated in the ethanol group, but only for a short period.
