Default Hookah and bodybuilding

Hello everyone! I'm in bodybuilding and was thinking...can smoking hookah (like couple of times per week) effect your body performance in workouts ?
Any info would be appreciated. P.s. Sorry for my bad english.

Only in terms of conditioning, it wont prevent you from lifting any more then you are however like smoking cigs it will hurt your respiration if done frequently enough, this could make your workouts harder and recovery from lifting take longer.

i was concerned about that too but havent relly had it affect performance. the one thing i heard was that nicotine affects the circulation which affects muscle growth but i think thats more of an issue with cigarettes.

I don't think it should affect anything. A friend of mine is a bodybuilder, he smokes cigars 2-3 times every day. He's huge and still gettin bigger

I used to bodybuild and smoke shisha and it didn't affect my gains at all back then i smoked once a week. Now i workout only around once or twice a week and smoke about twice a week and i'm still seeing gains so it should be okay.
