    Hey guys i have one Question... I work out and been working out for about 3 years now. I dont smoke, but last night i was at work and lot of my buddies were smoking, So they asked me to smoke one. So i did . I was wondering if the smoking got any effects on Muscles. I know smoking fuck up your stamina. But would it mess your body (Muscles,Defination,Overall Look)

    Smoking as in...cigarettes/cigars? For pure strength training probably not. But if last night was your first time...you'd be better off just forgetting about smoking and not starting.

    One cigarette or cigar or dip occasionally is just like havin' a drink once in awhile, in my opinion. Sure, you'd be better off without it, but it won't kill ya to indulge a little at times. That bein' said, I dont touch cigarettes and have a cigar a couple times a year.

    Maybe some people can have 'one' every once in a while, but do you really want to find out the hard way that you aren't?


    I've had my ass handed to me by smokers in grappling, but in 10 years if they're still smoking, then it's on!


    What I'm trying to say is that it probably won't affect you short-term, but long term it probably will.

    I agree. You could use these things as a reward for accomplishing a big goal every now and then. But the problem with this is that most people, including myself, do not have the self control to stop there. Once he starts smloking cigs/cigars he might realize how much he likes them...and it will become a habit. That's why I personally have never smoked. I have an addictive personality and would carried away with the amount.

    But if the OP can control his intake...I see the no problem with it every now and then.

    Just hold your arms away from your sides so you don't sweat so much. It looks like you have big lats too.

    Does dipping effect your muscle strength or cardio? I dont think it does. Anyone have some factual info?
