In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

Me and a bunch of my bartending buddies in Nashville have been doing Jacked Street for a while and absolutely loving it.
I’m wondering what your thoughts are in regards to balancing alcohol consumption with getting after it in the gym.  I know you and the boys are no stranger to getting the party started, crushing shots, beers, and mojitos, so I’m wondering what your mentality is with balancing that “don’t be weird” mindset, and still being able to crush 90 minute workouts six days a week, with an already physically demanding job. BYYYYYYYYE

Alcohol, the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems!

Finding a balance of your social life and your training goals is very important. Going too far in the direction of training closes the door on some memorable social gatherings and on the flip side, neglecting your body to drink all the drinks will catch up you one way or another. There is a push and pull relationship between training and alcohol consumption that can be managed with the right team of Nutrition Ninjas! The Power Athlete Nutrition Ninjas join John and Tex to key in on drinking, achieving training goals, and how to not be weird when it comes to alcohol and training.
