    Drinking alcohol once a week. How much can it hurt you if you keep it moderate?

    Say a guy doesn't drink during the week. He works out every single day.

    Once a week (Friday or Saturday) he enjoys 3-4 glasses of dry red wine. 4 oz each.

    If he is working his ass off in the gym every day, will that hurt his gains? He is not competing.

    Is it true that it will eat your muscles away? For example say a guy lifts Sunday-Saturday and has a few glasses of red wine 12 hours after his Saturday morning workout. Does he lose all his muscle that he gained that week?

    A few glasses of red wine a week would do absolutely nothing to hinder gains as long as your not a few weeks out from a competition, which you already stated you don't compete. Just make sure you mix in a little water here and there to stay hydrated and make sure a few glasses doesn't turn into 3 bottles and you'll be fine.

    Mix in your amino drink bro. It'll be like a post workout. It won't eat your muscles away if you do that...
