Post gyn activity

Friday is one of the days I go to the gym usually about 15-30mins after I got to the pub for a few pints with mates, is there any effect of the alcohol on my muscles, I know it wouldnt exactly help them grow but would it damage them in any way?

Hi Harry

No, as long it's only in moderation. There's certainly nothing I can think of that would suggest that it would be detrimental or harmful. Alcohol is a diuretic, which means you lose water when you drink alcohol, so you might find that you're a little thirstier than usual, and that's not really good, but for the muscles, there's no long term damage, provided you drink moderately (though this is for other health benefits too).

Good luck
