Should not drink alcohol before exercising

Some men like to drink some alcohol before exercise, believing that alcohol can make people excited and more passionate during exercise. This is not only harmful to health but also harmful, so do not drink before exercise.
 
First of all, alcohol first causes a short-term excitement in the cerebral cortex, which is manifested as a lot of talking, emotional agitation, and restlessness, and then turn to a longer period of inhibition, with slow response and sleepiness. At this time, the brain function is in an unstable state, which reduces the ability of discrimination, attention, and judgment, and affects the balance and coordination of the whole body movement. If you exercise in this state, the cerebral cortex will have to strengthen the spirit' to work, which will damage the brain's function and is prone to dangerous situations.

Secondly, alcohol can speed up the heart rate, increase myocardial oxygen consumption and blood pressure, and can induce arrhythmia, which increases the burden on the heart. If you exercise after drinking, it will further increase the burden on the myocardium and cause damage to the heart.

Furthermore, alcohol can cause muscle fatigue. Drinking alcohol will relax the muscles and decrease muscle tone. When the muscles exercise vigorously, the oxygen demand increases sharply, and the oxygen supply is insufficient, and the muscles will produce a large amount of lactic acid, causing human fatigue. Alcohol accelerates the production and accumulation of lactic acid and slows down the elimination of lactic acid.

In addition, the liver has to process alcohol after drinking, and the blood supply is relatively increased, and the gastrointestinal tract is congested due to alcohol stimulation, and a part of blood must be accumulated. And the blood supply of the gastrointestinal tract. In this way, it is not only harmful to the detoxification of the liver but also detrimental to the function of the gastrointestinal tract.
