Caffeine is an excellent training aid for reducing pain during exercise and recovering from intense training sessions – according to a study at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I personally am a great advocate of having coffee as my pre workout.
Researchers measured the effects of caffeine ingestion (three milligrams per kilogram of bodyweight) after four morning and three afternoon cycling sessions. In general, caffeine reduces the feelings of soreness and restores the perception of leg fitness after the workouts.
Caffeine is an important supplement for training. It increases power output, particularly during repeated interval like exercises. It also increases energy levels, which increase training motivation.
Ninety five percent of success in life is showing up. Caffeine helps when you do show up for a workout with an enthusiastic mindset.
So the next time you decide to hit the gym, treat yourself to an inexpensive and effective pre workout to take your training to the next level.
Until the next time, drink your coffee.
