Wassailing in Bad Decisions or Containing Compromise

Part of making bad decisions is learning from the outcome.  The ill effects of alcohol are various, but one main one is the ability to buffer protein synthesis.   Many of the studies I have run across seem to use alcohol directly post workout.  What has been gained by these studies is the understanding that partaking in an adult beverage or 3 post workout can limit any super compensation from training or even destroy any would be gainz. 

A couple things that can be gathered when you will knowingly be engaged in debauchery is how can I limit the effects of this habit.  There are a couple of ways science seems to indicate we can lessen the effect.  One thing I have noticed is during the weekends people tend to lower protein consumption which can be a main contributor to ill effects of the booze.

Two things that can help counteract a little of alcohols effect would seem to be protein, and vitamin C intake(1)(2).  It is understandable though that after a night of doing stupid things you may have trouble making a good decision, but I hold out hope for you.  If you goal is to make gainz consistently you would be better off not engaging in alcohol in the first place, but you already knew that.  I would like to apologize for the limited amount of posts lately but I’m not really finding anything interesting to write about.  Feel free to msg me on facebook or instagram if you have an idea.  If I don’t get to it or don’t write about it please forgive me.  I will attempt to answer questions if you need.  Thanks as always
