There are a few more feelings in a pickup basketball game than blowing a layup, which is doubly true when the punishment for the blown layup is to sprint to and from the other side of the court still playing. GQ charity pickup game, and I would be lying there I said I did not have to pull off the 40th The faintest sensation of unwelcome liquids
Although booze, generally speaking, can be detrimental how how it affects a person depends on a couple of factors, including the type of exercise involved. There is not much scientific research available-mostly because of the question of a triathlon in ethically dubious proposition-but here's what we know about the subject, and what the expert advise you do about it
Avoid drinking before cardio
Separate and separate from dealing with a hangover, which I believe will be the source of evidence training-namely, cardio-wants hamper your workout. You'll fatigue quicker, and take longer to hit your usual goals. As sports dietitian Claire Siekaniec notes in a 201
Additionally, Siekaniec writes, "The body preferentially metabolizes alcohol, then altering the metabolism of carbohydrates and lipids, which are the preferred sources of energy during endurance exercise." Burning alcohol off does not if that's a nutritional goal of yours. advised to avoid drinking 
drinking after resistance
Alcohol and weightlifting actually interact in a very different way than alcohol and cardio exercise, says. Dr. Jakob Vingren, a professor of exercise physiology and biological sciences at the University of North Texas.
When we spoke, he wanted to make it clear. That said, "alcohol ingested before a workout does not appear to affect strength and maximum power," he explained. Of course, he has been affected by motor performance and has mostly been using alcohol's effect on maximum strength, so it's not known if it impedes one's ability to do a high-rep, low-weight routine. Vingren's good feeling is that it would not be affected by drinking.
Drinking after lifting can and invalidating those sweet, sweet gains you're angling for, though. Vingren recommends not drinking in the hours after resistance training, because the muscles you just broke down will take longer to recover. Studies also show that men experience more post-workout muscle recovery issues from alcohol than women, though Vingren cautions that he wants more data on that front. His general counsel for everyone: "Do not force yourself to go out on a Friday evening."
Avoid hangovers all the time, at all costs
There is not-I repeat, there is not -a real cure for a hangover, so if you're serious about getting a real workout on a Saturday morning, you'll need to keep tabs on your alcohol intake on Friday night. Beyond a drink or two, you'll start experiencing the ill effects of having one too many. Even if it be tipsy or drunk, you can not see it, which does not bode well for your next-day exercise plans, either.
