We don't even know why you would subject yourself to such torture, but to each her own. In fact, Diane Kruger recently posted a beat-looking selfie in the gym after a night celebrating St. Paddy's Day. She said: "This is what my hungover workout session looked and felt like this morning."

Which made us wonder: If you wake up after a night of raging to realize you need to hit the gym or fit in that run—could it actually be bad for you?
Bummer news, lazy gals: "It's actually a great idea to start moving and begin to cleanse your body of toxins," said Dr. Jordan D. Metzl, a sports medicine physician at Hospital for Special Surgery. "The keys are good hydration and not doing anything that requires special balance until you are stable on one leg."
Dr. Metzl points out that dehydration is always a risk factor, so make sure you're hydrating—since you're probably already wiped from the night before.
Tip: Since you'll basically be sweating out that liquor (damn you, whiskey), you might want to do your gym partners a favor and opt for an outside workout session if you can. Just sayin'.
