    Is there any real evidence that vaping can negatively impact performance? If I have a vice it's vaping, and I vape like a chimney, am struggling to find any credible information on the effects it has on ones health though, specifically in regards to it's impact on athletes.

    It's "healthier" than smoking, but you're still inhaling BS.
    Not inhaling BS will obviously be better.

    vaping is awful for you. One because it's awful for you, and two, because it's LAME AS FUCK.

    Edit so closer on subject: It makes you a lame as fuck athlete if you're an athlete and you vape.

    This. It is FAR healthier than smoking. However you are still inhaling chemicals into your lungs. And if you are vaping with something that his nicotine in it, nicotine isn't great for you. However you are avoiding the smoke and additives that come in cigarettes.

    I know this is being facetious but you are always breathing chemicals.

    know enough pro fighters who blaze up on the reg, not to mention countless NFL/NBA players

    believe the positives far out weigh the negative

    I vape. I'm a cyclist who rides roughly 200 miles a week and I work out 5 days a week (mostly body weight with some dumbell work). In my experience, the biggest detriment is hydration. Vaping dehydrates you. It's really hard to keep water maintenance, vape and be extremely active. I've don't measure V02, but anecdotally, I can't feel it making a difference in my breathing.
