If you’d rather drink a beer...
A beer helps you "recover," right? ACE’s Crockford adheres to a "just say no" philosophy. "Alcohol consumption can interfere with muscle recovery from exercise and negatively affect a variety of performance variables." Well, that’s not what we were hoping for. How about a second opinion?
Fortunately, nutritionist Clark isn’t quite the party pooper. "Sure, it’s OK," says Clark, "because you’re still getting water, but just stick with one and done. Enjoy the high from the run, not from the beer!" Well, do the best you can, at least.
