We say "yay"! As caffeine can have a bad reputation, this is a very controversial topic. Many say that caffeine is bad for the heart, nerves, and increases depression. While this may be true for some individuals, others have proven to increase their overall performance (and health) when drinking a small amount of coffee regularly.
Based on scientific research studies, black coffee proves to enhance concentration, as well as improve accuracy and technique. Another benefit is reduced fatigue leading to longer, stronger workouts, which = results!
WARNING! Just don't over-do it! Too much coffee can lead to adverse effects so drink it in moderation. We recommend having a cup 30 min before a cardio workout; based on personal experience, don't consume coffee before weight lifting. As coffee is a diuretic and will dehydrate you, be sure to drink plenty of water to counteract the water-loss.
Please ask your doctor if a small amount of caffeine is allowed in your diet. Also, if you have had previous heart or blood pressure conditions, or experience anxiety, twitching, dizziness or nausea, we recommend, please take caution before including coffee into your daily routine.
