Hey SciShow.. I really enjoy videos you guys create, but they tasted much better when ads on begining were just "this video is sponsored by [name]", and then deails at the end of video. I always watch them to every last second.
When I rowed the general rule was no more than two beer after a workout and then only after a pint of half water half orange juice. The accepted wisdom of the time was that small amounts of beer helped the muscles relax etc and that by the time you got to four beers you were doing more harm than good.
It never ceases to amaze me how many people worry about pesticides and GMOs and "toxins" and gluten and sugar and chemicals, and then head to the bar to happily guzzle a literal poison that kills more Americans each year than car crashes and opium overdoses combined.
Only wrinkle is the test subjects had vodka... and orange juice... not beer.. I would have been more impressed with a double blind... vodka vs beer.. that arrived at the same conclusion.. then you have a confirmed conclusion to the claim. the video talked about beer... it should have talked about vodka...
As I've said before on other videos, science is good for training days, but just... don't forget to *live*. I've known and spoken to quite a few athletes who live for their exercise. They continue to push their bodies according to science, and forgo anything that could possibly hurt their efforts, even to the point of avoiding things that they love. A year or two in, most are fine, but those who have been doing such a thing for the better part of a decade? Or more? In my experience, they start to show signs of resenting this sport they used to love, the results that they used to love getting, and sometimes there are signs of other psychologically unhealthy thoughts or habits.
Science is good, but not at the expense of experiencing life. Without that, might as well throw out the science, too.
CHOCOLATE MILK...... DRINK CHOCOLATE MILK AFTER EXERCISING !!!!!!! 😤
Over 1000 Studies, and at least 3 Meta-Studies I know of, have proven over & over & over again the single most effective recovery drink is Chocolate Milk. At least 5x more effective than the Top 10 leading Protein Powders, 3x more than Gatorade. 🤗
This was absurdly simple and thus uninformative. Drinking TWELVE DRINKS after working out is bad for recovery? That's binge-drinking. Who is watching this video to find out if heavy partying is a healthy activity? Only at the end to we learn that 'about three' beers kinda sorta 'probably wouldn't affect recovery too much'. How long has ScShow been the JustWingingItShow?
According to all the beer commercials on tv, it's not only good to drink it after working out, but prior, and during a workout! Good, scientific advice! As far as sports drinks?, you might as well drink the beer. Add some sea salt to your water and get all the electrolytes back.
I drink 2.5 liters of water a day (4.5 if I'm at the gym), go to the gym every second day and drink one beer almost every evening. My muscles are just fine and never grew less, gave less performance or what ever. Beer contains the calories I need and balances out the amount of water I drink.
It's always the dose that makes the poison.
OK, "less then half a gram per kilogram of bodyweight". What does that mean? Less then half a gram of alcohol or beer? And how does it transform into ml? "About 3 beers" - Do you mean three 33ml beer or three pints? Per what weight? 70kg? 80kg? This is so cryptic its almost non-informative.
The problem with this video is that it is a bit misleading. Gatorade and the like ARE NOT ideal, because we are normal people and in our lives, with the sport we do, it is absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary to have a Gatorade to recover the electrolytes and the like. Water and a piece of fruit is fine. Sports drinks have a lot of sugar, and they have to, that's why they're sports drinks, but a normal people who is not an elite sports player of some kind DOES NOT need that sugar, since a lot of it is already present in our lives.
Secondly, and although not too much damage has been seen for drinking 3 beers regarding the muscle regeneration, the message must have gone beyond post-workouts because we live in a society that already drinks too much alcohol, and its bad effects are innumerable apart from the ones mentioned in this video. Alcohol is toxic, a beer or any kind of alcoholic drink IS NEVER a good option, despite the fact that one or two will not kill you, but those two will surely have an effect in your body that you cannot see, such as an increment on the chances of developing seven types of cancer EVERY TIME you drink any alcohol. While it is true that one or two won't kill you, the responsible message from a channel with such a huge audience regarding a topic as clickbaity as alcohol (people want to hear it's not bad to justify their drinking) should state NO TO ALCOHOL IN ALL SITUATIONS. That would be the responsible thing to do given the society and the health problems we face as one, because alcohol not only damages you, it damages the rest by means of traffic accidents, rapes, you name it.
wait so me working my ass off, making a healthy dinner, drinking lots of water, and drinking a protein shake then having some wine later in the night actually can counteract all of that as far as muscle progress goes? help :) :(
Good thing I'm not a serious athlete so I have to worry about such significances like recovery. I'll continue tossing back a cold frosty one after mountain biking. Mowing the lawn might take an extra minute or two the next day... Man, YouTube health videos are a total buzz kill.
Situation: people are not trusting science as they used to. We should do something about it.
Let's do a study about beer and exercise, but let's flaw it by using a microscopic sample. Also, let's use vodka and orange juice in a study about beer. Also let's give our test subjects an unreasonably large amount of vodka, despite the fact people drink beer after sports, not vodka.
I'm sure with these considerations we'll address the problem with trust in the scientific method...
I refrain myself from drinking alcohol _before_ a race, but after a race there's just nothing wrong with it. Gatorade may be nice but when you drink sweet stuff during a race the last thing you want to drink after you're done is drinking more of that stuff.
Next study must have a sample size of 2 men because 8 are so many. I am joking of course, those kind of studies are just worthless and actually exist only because scientists want to publish articles at famous scientific magazines with beautiful buzzwords and earn prestige or subsidies.
Something that isn't mentioned in the video is that one reason you need carbohydrates after a big workout is to replenish exhausted glycogen stores. Carbs are processed into glycogen through the liver. When you introduce alcohol into your system the body prioritizes processing the alcohol through the liver over carbohydrate. Carbs then get processed slower and more end up being processed as fat rather than glycogen. This is why alcohol isn't helpful in refueling your muscles.
Guinness contains “antioxidant compounds” similar to those found in fruits and vegetables that slow down the deposit of cholesterol on artery walls. This can help reduce blood clots and ultimately the risk of heart attacks
Every brewery in my city does "work for your beer" nights: a workout class hosted at the brewery followed by a free beer. Always wondered if the beer calories just canceled out whatever you burned. Sounds like it's not too bad, though.
What about caffeine containing things like Tea, Coffee, Energy Drinks before/during/after a workout? I am guessing the diuretic makes them less useful for hydration. Also, what about THC and/or CBD? In the movie Pumping Iron, Arnold S. has a scene smoking a joint after a workout. I am curious if just one of those or a combination of those 2, could be beneficial or harmful for muscle growth/recovery after a workout. I don't smoke or exercise or drink alcohol, but I would still be interested in the results of scientific studies, rather than peoples personal experiences/opinions.
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
