The consumption of alcohol before working out is not recommended. However, studies are inconclusive on the effects it has beyond the obvious immediate safety concerns. The build up of alcohol in the bloodstream which happens after consuming 2 alcoholic drinks within the same hour slows response time, reflexes, and impairs vision and coordination. These impairments are the only aspects that researchers can agree on as definitive side effects that may impact the safety of the person working out.
