Tip: Alcohol suppresses training hormones for up to 4 days. You may show up to practice but there will be little improvement or gains
A few drinks can offset your hard work by erasing the effects of your workouts, reducing your endurance and compromising your mental game. Alcohol affects your ability to learn new plays and strategies; it decreases your aptitude for muscle development and recovery and negatively impacts your nutrition and endurance.
