cheersAlcohol reduces muscle protein synthesis, causes insulin-resistance and interferes with the release of growth hormones following exercise.
If you're serious about making gains in strength and mass, then maybe you should abstain from alcohol, especially immediately before bed and after exercise. This precaution is especially important if you are below 20 years of age, when growth hormone release is most necessary for normal growth and development. In any case, moderation is always the best policy.
