Working Off the Beer After a Festival
Festivals always mean free booze and free booze obviously leads to a lot of drinking. How then can you work off the extra beer you had at the festival?
Lose it before the next festival comes around
Well there are several ways you can do so.
1) Run Around
Running around the block would do you a world of good. It is good exercise for the body as well, so you can actually tone your muscles and build stamina. A whopping winner!
2) Bike it out
Biking is another exercise you can indulge in, to reduce the chances of gaining a beer belly. Regular riding can help you maintain your weight and not get you on the path of having the dreaded waistline.
There are several exercises that retain your body shape and can in fact help tone it even. The beer tends to “accumulate” around the waistline and that is what should be targeted.
Sit ups are one such exercise you should definitely incorporate into your workout sessions to keep the beer belly at bay.
You could even use sit up benches to make your workout sessions easier and help you stick to your regime.

4) Follow your booze session with healthy detoxifying tonics
There are plenty of recipes on the internet for you to make your own detoxifying drinks that help in flushing out all the undesirables from your body. Although making a habit of boozing can lead you nowhere, however, for the few times you do indulge in doing so, these tonics can really cleanse your insides.
They are simple and quick to make and aren’t too bad to taste either. Or you will get used to them.
You can also include these in your diet for a more holistic approach towards nutrition and not do away with them just because you do not regular have alcohol.
The best sit-up bench
A bit of kit that, in my opinion, really helps when you want to work the gut area. And it doesn’t take up much space at home. A sit-up bench’s main purpose is to suspend the upper body lower than the hips and thighs. This position gets your hips, muscles and abs to work against gravity for the perfect sit-ups.
In my opinion, the best sit-up bench is hands down the XMark 12 Position Ergonomic Adjustable Decline Ab Bench XM-4416. This is by far the finest that is available in the market. It is the ergonomic exercise partner that helps you tone your abs and delivers on its promise. It is sturdy and dependable.
It holds your body weight and gives great support to your spine and is adequately built for even a 6 foot tall person. The back rest is well padded giving support all the way till your head. The bench can also be steepened to allow you to do inversion exercises. Anyway, I like it.
With all this information in hand, you really have no issues to work off your beer after a bout of festivities and you would be right in time when the next one comes rolling around.
