You drink more alcohol on days you exercise

Scientists say you are lifting more than weights on the days you hit the gym -- you're throwing back a few cocktails, too.

In a study that ran in the latest edition of Health Psychology, the American Psychologial Association's journal, researchers found that people typically exercise more on Thursdays and Sundays, when they're also drinking more.

The study looked at 150 people between the age of 18 and 89. Participants recorded their fitness activities, as well as their alcohol use at the end of the day using their smartphones. They did this for a period of 21 days at a time, at three different times of the year.

Scientists next want to study what the link is between exercise and drinking. Maybe they should focus on the link between drinking and the weekend...
