Alcohol and exercise

Drinking alcohol after training can disrupt the recovery process, so it is best to leave the booze alone for at least 8 hours after training! If there is alcohol in your body during training, your body will focus more on getting rid of that, instead of trying to burn fat and carbs during training. Consuming alcohol can disrupt your sleep pattern which in turn, further affects the recovery process as your body struggles to produce the hormones necessary for recovery.
