A cup of coffee before workout jolts athletic performance, especially in endurance sports like distance running and cycling. Caffeine has been proven to increase the number of fatty acids circulating in the bloodstream, which enables people to run or pedal longer. A new post at http://quickmusclebuildingtips.com analyzes whether coffee before workout could be the missing link in a workout.
Legal under International Olympic Committee rules, it is the most popular drug in sports as the muscles can absorb and burn fat for fuel and save the body’s limited stores of carbohydrates until later in the workout. A recent report shows that caffeine use was highest among triathletes, cyclists and rowers and over two-thirds of about 20,680 Olympic athletes had caffeine in their urine.
People are prone to drinking energy drinks during the summer months and a steaming cup of coffee in the winter can really kick start their motivation to get in the gym. However, most people are hesitant to have a cup of coffee before workout though it should get more credit as a ‘supplement’ for performance and endurance. The article really breaks down its benefits of caffeine before hitting the gym and talks about its role in promoting physical performance and increasing the amount of fatty acids running around in the bloodstream.
Though how caffeine affects other less-aerobic activities like weight training or playing a stop-and-go team sport like soccer or basketball has been less clear, caffeine before workout is a great plan. Those who are caffeine sensitive need to make sure that they tread lightly and while decaf probably has nowhere near the same effects, maybe the hot liquid and taste will help anyways. In its pure form (no cream, sugar, or milk), coffee is also known to be a powerful antioxidant.
