Being in college its really easy to lose focus of your goals. I go out quite a bit (4-5x a week) to bars and I realize this has a negative effect on my weight lifting gains. My goal has been to do at least some sort of physical activity a day - whether that be cardio, full body workout, upper body, lower body etc etc... I dont have a set in stone routine but a general idea of what workouts & muscle groups I want to hit b/c it is more fluid taking into consideration my schedule. For me, as long as I do something and work it really hard I am okay, taking into consideration due to my high metabolism.
Working out + going out
I like going out to bars and meeting new people because obviously it helps develop my social circle but by doing so the alcohol intake hurts my gains.
My question is: Can I still gain positive results while going out at this rate while working out? Obviously the alcohol will hurt my gains but my question is will I still gain?
In conclusion, I probably wont change the rate I go out but I want to hear some first hand experience of people who party (semi) hard and work even harder.
