Having trouble finding the energy or motivation to get through your morning workout? Try a cup of coffee before hitting the gym. When you drink caffeinated coffee, Epinephrine (better known as adrenaline) is released into your bloodstream, which gives you an extra boost. Caffeine is also known to speed up metabolism when taken before exercise, providing you with even more fat burning, energy enhancing benefits. Additionally, caffeine also helps break down body fat into free fatty acids so they can then be used by your body as extra fuel for your workout. It’s no wonder that studies show that caffeinated coffee can boost your physical performance by an average of 11-12%!
