I know, you’d think WEED & EXERCISE don’t go hand in hand, but they really do. I actually want to do a full post on smoking weed & working out… it’s just that good. Again, moderation. Don’t smoke a full joint & hit the treadmill, but a hit of weed can actually enhance your workout. It gets you, again, in the zone.
For example: I hate the rower in Orange Theory. It’s repetitive & stresses me out. When I smoke & am on the rower, I can really focus on rowing the RIGHT way to get my abs activated & the time flies on that rower.
Rumor even has it cannabis friendly gyms will soon be a thing… & when they hit San Diego, I will 100% be signing up thank you very much. Also, if you’re like me & have an injury, weed can help soothe the pain & makes working out easier. I have a low back issue that plagues me, & the physical therapist said I just need to strengthen my core. BUT working out hurts my low back, although I know it’s helping my low back at the same time.
Smoking before a workout eases that pain & makes it easier for me to actually build up that core strength. If you’re smoking before a workout, go easy on the lungs & use a vaporizer.
