Do you feel a searing headache, heaviness and slight nausea? It’s a hangover after last night’s great party with alcohol. If, despite the ailments, you are tempted to go for a workout, check if it is worth it!

Apart from classic ailments, alcohol disturbs sleep and significantly reduces its quality. But the greatest irony of binge drinking and pouring obscene amounts of spirits into yourself is the fact that the next day you’re severely dehydrated. Obviously skip your morning workout if you got home from the club at 4:39am and it’s still yesterday when you wake up. On the other hand, in case you wake up sober but with a nagging headache and a damaged personal dignity, a workout can work wonders in both areas.

In addition to easing the pain, the surge of endorphins that flood the brain during a workout will rebalance your brain chemistry, combating the depressing effects of alcohol. However, it’s best not to push yourself with intense strength training and go straight to the treadmill. Researchers at the University of Boulder have even proven that light aerobic training can reverse the brain damage caused by alcohol consumption to some extent.
