During the festive season, you’ll prob down a drink (or more) at parties. But how do you maintain your fitness regimen with all that alcohol in your system? Use these tips from Adora Wong.
Here’s what you need to know about going for a run or hitting the gym at dawn after a boozy night.
Don’t overdo it
If today isn’t like any other day, there’s no pushing it, and the last thing you want is to feel like death. Alcohol relaxes our nervous system and messes with our coordination, focus and balance, so go easy on the cardio and hop on the treadmill, take a brisk walk or do some yoga instead.
Hydrate over and over
We know you know this, but you probably still don’t do it as much as you should. Because alcohol consumption really works the kidneys, our body’s water goes to them to help metabolise the alcohol better. Go big on the water parade and chug some coconut water or sports drinks to replenish electrolytes.
Eat something healthy
We’d want the Big Breakfast too, but it’ll be more beneficial to have a bowl of oats topped with some fruits. A fibre-rich, easily-digestible meal is the fuel you’ll need to stay full and keep going.
