Everyone is aware about the negative effects of smoking. We are familiar with the quote that “smoking kills”.
The habit of smoking has a vital role in killing your gains.
Tobacco contains more than 4,000 different chemicals that react with your body in several ways. The most harmful of the chemicals are nicotine, carbon monoxide, and tar.
Nicotine is a drug. People don’t realize that it is that harmful, but it is. It is addictive like many drugs and gets absorbed into the bloodstream. Seven to eight seconds later the brain can feel the reaction. It has been noticed that nicotine may sometimes alter a person’s personality depending on how long they have been smoking, the amount of puffs inhaled, and how deeply they were inhale.
Smoking reduces blood flow to the muscles which results in slow recovery and least gains.
Smoking is a main source of lung cancer. Many toxins in cigarettes are to blame. The lung is widely-used during weightlifting, because you use the oxygen as a energy source and don’t get easily tired out. Also, bone loss is another affect of smoking. And if you lose bone marrow, then you will have a higher chance of injuries during weightlifting.
Its not just about weightlifting or gymming its about your overall wellness.
For better and healthy future ahead, leave this monster behind.
