So every morning we see people drinking these massive cans of energy drinks in the gym, and we just don’t get it… why spend hours working out to look and feel great only to drink a load of rubbish?! Remember muscles are made in the kitchen so make sure you choose a pre workout energy drink that is 100% natural and has positive effect on your body…
70% Diet + 30% Gym = 100% Beast!
There’s no better pre workout drink than an ethically produced, toxin free, high caffeine coffee!
Burn More Calories
Many studies have proven that drinking coffee prior to working out is likely to result in more calories being burned and greater fat loss. When caffeine is consumed it speeds up the metabolism and makes you burn more calories. In addition, caffeine can result in fat cells being used as an energy source rather than glycogen. Another benefit is that caffeine acts as a hunger suppressant meaning that you consume less and so burn fat stores.
Scientific research has proven that drinking coffee improves blood flow rates. Better circulation results in more oxygen to your muscles, and as a result leads to a better workout! Your muscles need oxygen to feed on and push out those extra reps at heavier weights!
Less Pain and improved endurance
Many studies have been carried out to prove that drinking coffee prior to high intensity exercise results in reduced perceived muscle pain and level of exertion. In summary, drink coffee; push harder, move faster and workout for longer. A report in Sports Medicine refers to caffeine as a “powerful ergogenic aid”.
Improved Focus and Mental Performance
“Your mind will quit 100 times before your body ever does: feel the pain and do it anyway”.
Along with increasing your energy levels a good black coffee will increase your mental focus. You may have heard the above phrase… drink coffee and put yourself in the mind set where you can push on beyond the pain barrier, make your workout more productive and get those gains.
Caffeine also improves memory, which proves a significant boost to your workout If you are requires to recall a particular exercise, technique or routine.
A study from Coventry University has proven that caffeine consumption helps offset the loss muscle decay that may otherwise occur naturally with ageing. In short caffeine may preserve overall fitness and reduce the likelihood of muscle related injuries.
Other research backs up these findings suggesting that coffee triggers a mechanism in the brain, releasing a growth factor called Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). BDNF expresses itself in your muscles where it supports your neuromotor – if your muscle is a motor, then the neuromotor is the ignition.
