We all know that we like our caffeine - whether in coffee, tea, or other methods. But evidence shows that there may be additional benefits from our caffeine addiction.
Caffeine may not only help improve the effects of your exercise routine, but how well you recover from exercise as well.
Researchers at the Australian Institute of Sport found that athletes who consumed a small intake of caffeine before exercise maintained their stamina far longer than those who did not consume it. The caffeine also boosted the amount of weight lost during physical activity. As well, pre-exercise caffeine raised exercise capacity by 3.5%.
A separate group of Australian researchers, from RMIT University, reported that people recover faster from an exercise workout by drinking caffeine. In their study of a group of endurance cyclists, the team found that the consumption of caffeine, along with carbohydrate, improved the glycogen content in muscles by 66% at four hours post-workout.
Enjoy 6 ounces of coffee or tea – 30 minutes prior to your workout. You will have increased energy AND recover faster.
