Whiskey & Deadlifts Christmas Party 2015
Do a few shots and then pull a PB Deadlift.... What could go wrong?
What you don’t want to do is to negatively affect the rest of your workout as the Russians are rumored to do. It also seems wise to only use alcohol as a performance enhancer for movements you can walk away from – the deadlift being a perfect example. Chris Duffin
I have been experimenting with alcohol in training for the last month. I have found a shot 2-3min before my last pull to be most effective. I usually feel no negative effects of the alcohol before the set but as I walk away from the bar I can feel it hit rapidly… Chris Duffin
Since I deadlift at the beginning of a workout I was worried about the alcohol affecting me negatively while hitting all my volume work after pulling. I have found this not to be the case. This approach most definitely should not be utilised in every training session. Chris Duffin
