What to do if I do not get hangovers when i exercise whilst drinking?

Don't understand ?: Were you hoping to have hangovers?? If not, exercise away. However, most people don't find being intoxicated goes along well with exercise, and alcohol may reduce muscle strength.

Hydration...: Hydration is not only drinking plenty of water. Actually you don't want to drink plenty of water. You need the electrolytes you are sweating away while exercising.

You use circulating glucose, then glycogen stores to make glucose. The body will make glucose from fat only if you use up your glycogen stores. ...Read more
