Looks delicious, doesn’t it….
As most of you know, we here at Bodyfit like beer. Actually, let me rephrase that…. we LOVE beer. What can I say??? We like to have a good time. And nothing helps you relax after a long day quite like a cold beer. Now I’m not advocating for heavy drinking 5 nights a week, but there isn’t anything wrong with the occasional brew. In fact, I’ve got some information to back that up…
Here are a couple of articles I have recently come across regarding the consumption of beer and exercise, running in particular.
- This article deals with the physiological effect that beer has on running performance. Although it is a very small study and sample size, it does provide some interesting results.
- Here we get to see a professional runner’s opinion on the hoppy beverage. You may be quite surprised by his take.
- Lastly, we get to see the actual health benefits of beer. Now, it certainly isn’t going to be considered a “health food” by your nutritionist, but beer does have a few beneficial components that may be of interest to you.
So, now you’ve got some scientific and some not-so-scientific information regarding your favorite beverage. The question is now… To drink, or not to drink???? If you’re a regular at our gym, I think you know the answer!!
