It’s the time of week when I give you a sneak peek on some quick and dirty fitness tips from Get-Fit Guy.
Each week, over at the Quick & Dirty Tips Network, I produce a free, easy-to-read article, accompanied by a short 5-10 minute audio version of that article. Everything there is focused on the latest fitness research, exercise news, and quick and highly practical muscle gain, fat loss and physical performance tips. It’s called “The Get-Fit Guy’s Quick & Dirty Tips To Slim Down & Shape Up”.
Here's your sneak peek from this week's episode “How To Stay Fit When Partying”
In last week’s episode, you discovered how to stay fit and healthy when parenting.
But let’s face it: you may not be interested in being a parent. Perhaps you’re actually more interested in partying. Or perhaps you occasionally need a break from being a parent (or a student or a CEO or an athlete) to throw down the occasional bout of hedonism. Work hard, play hard…right?
Problem is, partying – especially when alcohol is involved – is pretty hard on the body.
For example, alcohol can have a variety of different effects on the heart, including creating abnormalities in heart rates referred to as arrhythmias. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism explains that there are two types of alcohol induced arrhythmias: atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. Atrial fibrillation occurs when the upper chambers of the heart weakly shudder but are unable to fully contract, which can cause blood to build up and clot in these upper chambers, and if these blood clots travel from the heart to the brain, a stroke can take place. If these clots travel to other organs, an embolism (a blood vessel blockage) can occur.
