Science - Alcohol and Exercise

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:36 pm on 31 January 2011

After a big game on a Saturday night, it's usual for team mates to go to the pub and drink up big. Then it's back to the gym on Monday to start training again. However, research at Massey University is showing that alcohol after strenuous exercise is not such a good idea. To see what the participants had to endure during the study, Ruth Beran paid a visit to Matthew Barnes at the School of Sport and Exercise Science in Palmerston North.
