Can you smoke weed while bodybuilding?
Can you, yes, should you, no.
Because marijuana can give you the munchies, which makes it harder to stay on your diet.
That’s one reason. And marijuana tends to make people lethargic, making it darn near impossible for a heavy smoker to stay on an exercise plan.
What other reasons are there?
Uh, you could go to jail. That might or might not put a crimp in your workout routine, but it will ruin your diet.
And your life. But it is legal in a lot of states.
You have to get a medical exemption in some states like California, though Colorado makes it legal recreationally. But if you do something stupid like crash your car or get hurt, that’ll ruin your workout routine.
I can see where smoking weed might hurt your workout routine, too.
I don’t want anyone who has been smoking weed to be my spotter, because they may be seeing strange things instead of watching me. And a lot of people who are high think they are doing great when they are totally messing up their routines.
It’s not as bad as bath salts. OMG, those guys end up doing weird stuff.
There are a lot of tragic-comic photos of that sort of thing on Reddit.
One advantage of weed over beer is that it doesn’t add calories to your diet.
It gives a lot of people the munchies. In fact, the cancer drug Marinol was synthesized from marijuana, to make people with chemo drugs and other things that suppress your appetite want to eat.
If you plan your diet, smoking weed won’t ruin it.
Until you wander down the street to buy Cheetos. Or sleep so much afterward that your metabolism rivals that of a sloth.
You just aren’t laid back.
Think of what you could do with the money you’re blowing on weed. Don’t complain you can’t afford gym fees or rent if you’re blowing it on what you smoke.
Mary Jane isn’t as bad as cigarettes.
You’re still inhaling smoke and carbon particles into your lungs, and God help you if you have a psychotic episode. Look, smoking weed is the opposite of the healthy goals most body builders have.
