1.) I find it incredibly ironic that you say: "and I don't want any repllies from people who don't smoke weed...cause you won't know for sure" and then the next sentence is "Any replies would be appreciated."

2.) I'm operating under the second sentance, I've never smoked weed before, but I have the feeling that it would effect your stamina. You wanna test? Smoke some weed and then run, see how you feel.

well it was a dumb question but ill tell u anyway

first is the pot mixed in with other crap that could be a factor. Try to get clean shit

and smoking pot only effect your cardio if it becomes a daliy habit. Just like eating fast food. You could eat fast food ever 2 weeks for the rest of your life and it wont be a big deal. But if u eat fast food every 2nd day it will start to add up.

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....


i hope not cuz im writing a sci fi novel

i guess that was a bit harsh. i sould re-word it.

the question its self wasn't stupied but the way it was said

"And i dont want any replies from people who dont smoke weed...cause you wont know for sure "

why would pot smokers not know? they would be the onces feeling the effects wouldn't they

"I find personally it doesnt affect my stamina though i dont smoke much but a few of my buddys say it affects theres..."

why would u ask a question u think u already know?

u dont need to be so touchy, where all just trying to help each other out

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....

I smoked everyday for 12 years and do lots of training and used to always say the same thing. That it didnt effect me. I used to also have a smoke then do training as I felt more energetic.

Im 34 now and eventualyl it does catch up with you. I've been clean for over a year now and it definitely has made a difference. Particularly in my breathing ability. I used to also find that if i worked out hardcore i'd feel a bit dizzy but i dont now.

But like all things. Anything is ok in moderation! Hope this helps.

That's when you raise your hand and ask something completely random and stupid such as: "In Brazil, does when it snows, is it warm snow falling up? since the weather is opposite from us in the Northern Hemisphere." (I'm drawing off the Simpsons for that one)

Any type of smoking is just counter productive to training PERIOD!!!

Plus, by smoking weed it will impair your judgement and potential make you more of a hazard to your training partners...
