Man, I find this really hard to believe: “Researchers at Granada University in Spain have found that beer can help the body rehydrate better after a workout than water or Gatorade.” Link.
I used to drink beer after working out. It was often a recipe for disaster. The hangover would be far worse than normal. I always attributed it to the combination of two dehydrating activities in one day. Maybe it was something else, but I’ll never again follow a hard workout with a hard bout of drinking.
