Alcohol And Exercise

On Friday afternoon after you leave work, you probably
think about going out and having a few drinks of Alcohol with friends to relax and wind down. Even though you
may think you deserve to go out and have a few drinks,
there are some things that you should certainly keep
in mind.

Like any other day, tomorrow is going to be a day for exercise, and since you are exercising on a regular basis, a few drinks of alcohols won’t really
hurt anything, right? Before you decide to rush out to the local bar, there are a few things below that you should think about before you make your choice about going out to drink some alcohols.

Research has proven that even small amounts of alcohols with increase muscular endurance and the output of strength, although these types of benefits are very short lived. After 20 minutes or so, the problems will begin to surface. All of the negative side effects associated with alcohols will easily outweigh any possible benefits that it can have. No matter how you look at it, alcohols is a poison that can really harm your body if you aren’t careful.

The negative side of alcohols can reduce your strength, endurance, aerobic capability, recovery time, ability to metabolize fat, and even your muscle growth as well. Alcohols will also have an effect on your nervous system and brain. If you use it long term, you can cause severe deterioration of your central nervous system. Even with short term use, nerve muscle interaction can be reduced which will result in a loss of strength.

Once alcohols reaches the blood cells, it can and probably will damage them. With alcohols users, inflammation of the muscle cells is a very common
thing. Over periods of time, some of these cells that have been damaged can die which will result in less functional muscle contractions. Drinking
alcohols will also leave you with more soreness of your muscles after you exercise, which means that it will take you a lot longer to recuperate.

Alcohols will also have many different effects on your heart and circulatory system as well. When you drink any type of alcohols, you may begin to see a reduction in your endurance capabilities. Anytime you drink, your heat loss will increase, due to the alcohols simulating your blood vessels to dilate. The loss in heat can cause your muscles to become quite cold, therefore become
slower and weaker during your muscle contractions.

Drinking alcohols can also lead to digestive and nutrition problems as well. Alcohol cause a release of insulin that will increase the metabolism of glycogen, which spares fat and makes the loss of fat very hard. Due to alcohols interfering with the absorption of several key nutrients, you
can also become anemic and deficient with B type vitamins.

Because your liver is the organ that detoxifies alcohols, the more you drink, the harder your liver has to work. The extra stress alcohols places on
your liver can cause serious damage and even destroy some of your liver cells.

Since alcohols is diuretic, drinking large amounts can put a lot of stress on your kidneys as well. During diuretic action, the hormones are secreted.
This can lead to heightened water retention and no one who exercises will want this to happen.

If you must drink alcohol, you should do it in moderation and never drink before you exercise, as this will impair your balance, coordination, and
also your judgement. Think about your health and how you exercise – and you may begin to look at things from a whole new prospective.
