Is This Your Idea Of A Group Workout

imageMy complete lack of focus and also my ignorance of my surroundings were both things that alcohol can cause. Alcohol and bodybuilding simply don’t mix! This article is not intended to dissuade people from using alcohol moderately, for recreational purposes, but will point out, from an athlete and a researcher’s point of view, its significant shortcomings Alcohol consumption is not something that any bodybuilder wants to get involved with because it has many adverse effects on everything we need to gain muscle- hydration, recovery, anabolism, and focus being a few examples.I know nobody would ever think of consuming alcohol directly before a workout or after one – but even having a few drinks a night or two before a workout can cause a negative impact on you. Since alcohol consumption is very hard on the kidneys, drinking will have a negative impact on your body’s hydration. Your body’s water will go to the kidneys to metabolize the alcohol when it should be used to help process other substances! Hydration is key to performance in sports or weight lifting because water is needed in all energy-creating reactions. It can take the body awhile to become re-hydrated, so I suggest if you are out drinking, have a glass of water as well, to maintain proper hydration.
