Sup /fit?

Anyone enjoy working out high? I've been lifting for about 2 and a half years now and have always enjoyed a nice buzz prior to my workout. It's actually the only time I smoke anymore. Feelsgoodman.jpeg

What are your thoughts? Curious to hear other people's experiences with this and how you have or haven't benefited. Pic related, current buds.

It's always hurt my reps and my cardio. I think it only benefits addicts who need it for normal emotional functioning

Stupid when you can perform better when not high. And don't try and say thats wrong.

Fucking stoners

I've had mixed results as far as beating PR but with the presmoke, once you get into your routine, you feel great working out. This applies to both weightlifting and cardio for me although cardio is much harder to start
>>
I really can't stand going outside if I'm high, once I got really high then I wanted to get some hamburgers 1 km away, mid way threw I got this feeling of "IM SO FAR AWAY FROM MY HOUSE YET IM SO FAR AWAY FROM THE STORE, I FEEL TRAPPED" and I got a panic attack, I also remember being in the store bending down to get the wallet I droped and I bumped my head at some ladies body(not sure if i did or thought I did).

Weed is fucking retarded, and it gives you mood disorders.
>>
>>41144432
That may be true for you. I personally don't have any hinderence to my abilties that effect me negatively. When I smoke prior to, it helps me perform better in the sense that it removes me from any mental distractions and allows me to focus my entire self on the use of my muscles. I don't expect it to help me become stronger or to give me a freakish boost in strength..it's all about the mindset it gives me. That's what dictates my output.

I agree with the cardio part if it's a bit intense. Helps with the jogging or biking but I wouldn't take a hit before I did sprints.

I don't know how people can lift high but it's made for hiking.

>>
>>41144665
I'm just saying that I don't function on weed, I become phobic af and just stay inside trying not to have a bad high.

If you can smoke a blunt and then do shit like going to the gym then you're fucking evil. Only a evil person could be so "collective" and "calm".

theoretically its actually good for hypertrophy training

>depresses your CNS forcing you to lift weight less efficiently
>therefore this should cause you to get more hypertrophy (muscle damage) without increasing the weight
>also improves blood flow to the lungs for more TUT in your sets
>helps you feel full contractions better

I actually want to test this out but you know its illegal and stuff
>>
>>41144704
>>41144680

You have a hidden anxiety disorder, anons. You should probably address that. (you probably live in a state where it's illegal or you're still under the stigma that it brings)

I used to smoke pot and freak the fuck out. Then I addressed my problems.

Either that or you're smoking some super potent shit that you should save for when you're a bit more advanced. It's like drinking Bacardi 151 when you're 17 and saying "I don't like alcohol, it just fucks me up, man." Try it after drinking steadily for a few years and you'll drink it like it's nothing.

Now I smoke weed and go out wherever I want. Not that I do all the time, but sometimes I'm high and I want something from the store. I never drive while high because that's fucking stupid, but I'm not afraid to leave my house.

Also, to be on topic, working out while high is the best. You can go longer, go harder, and have more fun doing it. Working out while high is exhilarating as fuck.

Before to go to the gym, I like to smoke to get a buzz so when I start lifting, I get into the "zone" as I listen to shitty chinese cartoon theme song/corea pop

Anon, people severely underestimate weed's potential to make you lose weight.

I suspect that when mainstream America finally accepts weed as a legal drug they're going to be smoking pot like crazy once they find out potheads are significantly more likely to weigh less than non-smokers.

Hell I'm overweight and I'm using it now to lose weight. I lost 20 pounds in the last 4 months and I've done nothing but lift occasionally and eat whatever the fuck I want.
>>
>>41144871
Split routine 5 days a week. Do cardio 3 days a week.
>>
I don't know how you all do it.

I like smoking weed but I just can't stand doing any sort of physical activity when stoned. It makes everything seem so laborious and long.
>>
>>41144741
>>41144854
I used to be a hypochondriac when I was in my late teens and I've associated smoking weed with depression, anxiety and psychosis.

So when I get high It gets so easy to get freaked out thinking shit like "now im high, this is the downfall, now im gonna be depressed from this chemical abuse.... maybe i've activated schizophrenia it's all downhill from here, hello psych meds and mental deterioration and slipping into madness".

That's why I have benzos and booze with me when I get high now, I take all the precautions because freaking out on weed can feel like a near death experience if you're high enough and the after effect of that panic attack tend to linger on after the high.
>>
>>41145026
If you live in a legal state, get some high-CBD weed. Smoke that when you start to freak out. It'll bring you right out of it.

If you're honestly freaking out and don't have that, start working out. At first, the increase in adrenaline makes you freak a little. Once you start to burn that off, though, you'll start to really enjoy yourself. I always used to do a really fucking hard workout before smoking.

Also, I know some guys are all "masturbating doesn't do anything" but if you masturbate regularly, you could end up with more consequences while smoking. I don't jerk off before smoking.

I did it once not liked it much. It changes body perception and I ended up doing fewer feps because it was hard to guess how much power I had left. Smoking afterwards is fine.

I doubt that one can tell at a public gym if you are stoned or exhausted from workout.

You've got anxieties like anyone else and getting 420 blazed destroys the mental wall you've built to keep them at bay. It's pretty common.

Weed for lifting or cardio is ruinous. Huge mistake. However, smoking before yoga and foam rolling is life changing. Your mind to body connection is through the roof.

>>
>>41145427
What do you mean by mental wall?
>>
>>41145559
I try to confront my anxieties and think them through, the more I don't want to think about them the better. Like I have an issue with overthinking health problems, I'll get something like a nasty bit of acid reflux and think about how it could be a heart attack, what-if thoughts like that. I know damn well it's just heartburn, but bad heartburn can feel the same as a heart attack, so there's a gap for anxiety to sneak in if you feel me. So I tell myself it is a heart attack, it's gonna kill me, and I'm gonna sit here and let it kill me. This kills the anxiety, kek.
>>41145637
Thought patterns and/or behaviors you've developed to avoid thinking uncomfortable thoughts. Like say if you're in a social situation where you don't know anybody and rather than try starting a conversation with a stranger you take out your phone and fuck around with it instead. That behavior is the wall that keeps you from having to overcome your social phobia.

I don't really get bothered by me introspective thoughts about my self, I more than likely get creeped out watching tv or something like that (especially adult swim shit), I start to think shit like "omg these people are nihilists", movies seem so fake and you notice how movies are shit and people act so insane and irrational.
>>
>>41145921
Maybe just do something else while high then. There's probably something you could change mentally and get past it but that's a lotta work when you could just listen to music or go for a walk or whatever and not have a problem in the first place.

Recently, I took a few hits from a blunt and tried to workout; bar slipped from my grip and would have probably crushed my jugular if I hadn't had a spotter, who was sober of course.

Seriously, fuck marijuana and the people who tell you that shit is healthy for you. The only reason people use substances is to escape the reality they created.
But I guess If you can handle yourself and not morph into a complete loser and dumbass then fine, but I've personally never seen it.

>>41145341
This shit is basic psycho analysis m8. Almost everyone goes trough it too. You've got inner demons. Weed takes away your mental layers of defense, rendering you vulnerable. The only way to beat it is to allow yourself to be vulnerable, face those demons head on. You'll notice the anxiety fades over time and you give less of a shit about trivial things
>>
>>41145559
Ever heard of "facing your fears"? You gotta confront that shit head on. If you're someone with social anxiety for example the only way to fix it is to force yourself into social situations.

I owe my fitness achievements to weed. When I first started lifting as a skinny fat little fuck I would smoke before so that I would stop paying attention to what others were thinking of me. It also made me concentrate super hard on muscles, performance, and how to actually lift.

Less efficient CNS = less stress on system = less damage = less gains.

Yeah. Actually I'd need to agree with this. Weight lifting is nogo. Cycling/biking is cosy tho.
>>
sounds like a shit idea. also even as a seasoned veteran I wouldn't trust myself with a heavy set on the bench or DL'ing 1 rep max etc. while high and those are the things that give me most pleasure at the gym.

just do your workout sober, get home, take a shower and smoke.
>>
>>41144288
Smoked weed for 5 years. Loved that shit more than any drug. Made me start working out etc. So I give it that credit at least. Stopped smoking three months ago. Weights sky rocketed. Beard growth kicked in massively. Hooked up with girls in clubs from being a kissless virgin. Now it's obvious to me that weed fucks ur hormonal balance. Specifically Testosterone. If you want gains and gals, quit weed. Trust me.
>>
>>41151014
you're not wrong and weed definitely does hamper performance and recovery but I would choose weed over girls any day. the thing I dislike is that it makes me lazy as fuck. if I have weed I never manage to get a workout in because I just wake and bake and the day is lost.
>>

Weed is really bad for you, people telling you otherwise are stoners rationalizing their addiction.

Weed is neither a stimulant, hallucinogen, nor a depressant. It's a psychoactive drug. The awake or drowsy effect can vary dependant on the strain, but you don't get low as if we're heroin and you don't get jacked up like on meth or old jack3d

I feel ya. What I hated a lot about my smoking habits was that I only saw the bowl as my biggest reward. When I was out with my friends and drinking, all I could think about was when I could get home and take that toke and settle down in my chair and plays video games. Friends leaving my place to go out to the club? Great, I'm not coming, I'm staying home and smoking. Enjoy getting hammered you fools. Now when I'm clean though I feel like it was my reward system that was fucked up. My only reward was weed. There were no reasons to meet girls because weed was my mistress. I already had everything I wanted. An apartment, a job, friends, a great computer & killer bud. But in time I realized that something I had when I was younger had slipped out of my life, clearly because of my addiction. Took a lot of attempts to quit weed, people say you can't be addidcted to it. But I beg to differ as it has an effect on your cannabinoid system. If you smoke hard over a long period of time you stop producing natural cannabinoids because your body gets used to the synthetic ones, being THC-A etc. That's a literal definition of a physical dependency. I envy people who can occasionally smoke, because that's totally fine in my view. But I couldn't balance the green scale, which resulted in 420 being an everyday for me. I threw away three years of my youth by just smoking all day. The time flew by in light speed. The past three months has felt like 8-10 months compared to my smoking days. And I've matured more in these months than I have in three years. Don't throw your life away bro, use your youth to it's fullest. You can smoke as much weed you want when you grow old. That is if you're a chronic user. People who smoke once a week or so is totally fine in my opinion. That's just my two cents though.
