We have all seen health supplements especially Whey Proteins packed in big jars and containers. Have you observed the inconvenience behind this jar packaging? Every-time you’re going on a short or long trip, you have to make small packets of your protein dosages in order to squeeze it in your already flooded suitcases.There are two types of people in this world - Chai-lovers and Coffee-lovers. And no matter what level of fitness they follow, nothing beats the happiness of sipping in a cup of coffee and rejuvenating yourself. And why not? It’s got some great benefits too, especially when had before your workout.
Today, we’ll be talking about the benefits of drinking coffee (without sugar and milk) before your workout sessions. Research says, if you want to hit the gym when your caffeine boost is at its peak, you’ll have to sip in your cup of caffeine 45 minutes before starting your workout in order to reap the below benefits.
Studies have shown that athletes can workout or train themselves longer after caffeine consumption. Caffeine is quickly absorbed in the blood stream, and blood levels peak after 90-100 minutes, increasing your tolerance to pain during exercise.
Decreases Muscle Pain
More tolerance means lesser muscle pain. Consuming caffeine about 30-45 minutes before your workout helps you enhance your weight training sessions with more resistance power, also helping you run a bit faster in your cardio workouts.
Helps in Fat Loss
Coffee – when had before your exercise can cause fat cells to be used as a source of energy instead of glycogen.
The high amount of caffeine in Black Coffee increases your metabolism, in-turn helping you burn more calories throughout the day. Coffee enhances this effect when consumed before your workout.
Besides helping you with energy to push your physical limits, Black Coffee also helps you improve your focus and mental alertness. Coffee stimulates the release of a feel good hormone – Dopamine which uplifts your mood and emotional stability.
Less fatigue and good mood means you get more work done.
The effects of caffeine last for several hours, so now you know the bonuses of having caffeine before your workout sessions.
So the next time you’re getting ready to hit the gym, don’t forget to have your cup of joe and be pumped up in your workout sessions.
