When you think of marijuana the last thing that comes to mind is working out, but thanks to a new study it seems like that might be a perfect combination.

According to Men's Health, a study from Frontiers In Public Health found more than 50 percent of cannabis uses said weed motivated them to exercise, and about 80 percent reported using the drug before going to the gym.

The study also showed that 67 percent said they smoked weed before and after working out and those who got high within the hours of exercising put in 43 more minutes of activity each week compared to those who didn't smoke.

People came to the conclusion that smoking week is more enjoyable and even improves recovery.

Scientist say that smoking weed may tone down pain perception, and add they also know that the receptors cannabis binds to the brain are very similar to the receptors that are activated naturally during the runners high.

Now before you go lighting one up before your next workout there isn't enough evidence that smoking weed is safe so do it at your own risk.

However, I think it would be a complete waste of time because after your workout you will get the munchies and add those calories right back.
