Strange But True Fitness Tips #13: Go for a Pre-Workout Coffee

November 21, 2014 1 min read

Coffee is something most of us can't live without, and we're total grumps if we don't have a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. But it turns out that the best time to drink coffee is right before your workout! Research has discovered that taking caffeine supplements or drinking a cup of coffee before exercising helps to increase the amount of fat burned during workout. Caffeine stimulates your nervous system, speeding up your metabolism and increasing calorie-burn. It even helps to activate the fatty acids stored around your body, making it easier to burn fat.

A study conducted at the University of Nebraska discovered that ingesting caffeine before a workout helped participants to increase the amount of weight they could bench press by five pounds. If you need to kick your workout into high gear, drink a cup of coffee--black, no sugar!
