Proof That Coffee is Even More Amazing Than You Originally Thought

That morning (and afternoon) cup of coffee could be more beneficial than you think. In addition to tasting delicious, it’s likely that caffeine is also aiding your performance in the gym.

Caffeine has been proven to have a few benefits:

  • Improved endurance
  • Reduction in delayed onset muscle soreness
  • Increased fat burning
  • Increased mental focus

But there is also a downside – if you constantly need of a cup of coffee to get going, or if you need to take some sort of pre-workout powder to “wake up” before you WOD, then it’s probably time to cut back on the stimulants for a week or two!
