Detox to Retox: The Close Ties Between Exercise and Beer

wineride_copy2
Here at higherpower, we love the social aspect of exercise. Sometimes that means meeting up after a  run or cycling session for a drink. Happy's Running Club is a great example of how we can make friends through exercise that form relationships on and off the running trail.  For many people, working out and alcohol are closely linked. Sports teams and training partners celebrate victories or mark the end of training sessions with a beer or three. Beer, in fact, provides a substantial portion of some exercisers’ fluid intake after workouts.

But whether exercise encourages people to drink and, likewise, whether drinking encourages people to exercise has been in dispute. The New York Times published an article today showing the science behind exercise and drinking as our favorite past time.

Two new studies suggest that exercise may well influence when and how much people drink. Drinking may even affect whether people exercise, and, the findings suggest, the interplay between exercise and alcohol could be a good thing.

In the review, published in Frontiers in Psychiatry, the authors point out that in lab rodents, both exercise and alcohol have been shown to increase activity in parts of the brain related to reward processing. The animals seem, in animal fashion, to get a kick out of both exercise and drinking.  But while the animals’ brains responded similarly to the two activities, they did not respond identically, the past studies show. But while the available evidence suggests that exercise may encourage people to drink, it does not indicate that this relationship is necessarily worrisome for the vast majority of us. 

Here in New Orleans we're committed to staying fit but it's good to know the occasional Barathon or post race drink is just part of our balanced lifestyle.
