    Workout on cocaine and I bet you'd be too fucked to do anything for days. Not to mention the heart attack risk if you do it regularly.

    Bones wasn't doing himself any favours one month out from the fight. Actually hurting his chances more than helping.

    I'm sure DC could get some blow if he wanted to.

    As far as the other guy who allegedly did coke said: It's a painkiller, that means you can do a lot more training without reading the signs to stop, which for me resembles ephedra.

    It's not like testosterone, that makes you grow muscles from night, but it still helps.

    Still I never did cocaine myself, so I have to expect people who did to step up and "come clean".

    Jones had a whole year to party like an animal, if that cocaine was due to entertainment, couldn't he quit about 2 or 3 months just to be safe? Dude just got half a freaking million in one night.

    No it is actually really dangerous and bad for your body in the long term. But I would expect in would be more something he would do in NY rather than when he is in camp at Jackson's.

    Certainly makes sense given his recent decision to move to New Mexico full time.

    It might help with mental tasks, but only for a short period of time, and only with occasional use. It has a degenerative effect on the brain over time, so a habitual coke user would probably perform worse, even while high on cocaine.

    If he took it just before his last fight then yes. It would've given him a lot more energy, would've dulled/numbed physical pain in the fight and the adrenal boost could've allowed him to do physical things he wouldn't have been able to do without that adrenaline present. Having too much adrenaline, or having a 'dump', will gas a fighter out quickly though (ask Carwin in the Lesnar fight), and cocaine essentially dumps your adrenaline. So it's a double-edged sword.

    One of the drugs I havnt tried. I have used Ketamine & orthers etc...It wouldn't help you much physically especially long-term use...


    Short-term, it would pump a massive amount of dopamine out though as it is a DRI. That would give you a massive boost to self confidence & help to prevent pain signaling to the body. It could also make you hypo manic or outright manic

    It depends how you use it, how the individual responds to it. I feel it would be pretty stupid to train with it, but it could help you in a fight if you knew how to use it right.

    If doing coke is helping you with your training then you need to get yourself a new dealer.

    It has a numbing effect that can help with pain, energy levels are all over the place so you don't really get any benefit.

    This!
    Cocaine, amphetamine and ephedrine are all sympathomimetic drug or adrenergic drugs.

    They tend to open the lungways and give you one helluva rush.

    I've used ephedrine, and man, you become the duracell bunny. I did VERY high intensity workouts (Full power with short breaks) of running 30 mins, then going full power on the bag(mostly kicks) for 30mins, then in the end with circle training with jumps/pushups/situps etc.

    Completely drenched in sweat, but still had energy. I actually started to feel cold and felt like freezing, but my temp wasn't low at all.

    That was when I was young and dumb... It was no doubt dangerous.
