What if we told you that preparing your self for exercise should not be limited only to drinking water and wearing appropriate clothes? Before starting your physical workouts, you may stop and relax a little bit while drinking your cup of coffee.
Many researches have shown that drinking coffee before beginning exercises will boost your performance significantly. Caffeine works to stimulate the central nervous system and the heart as well as its effect on blood pressure level. All these factors will stimulate your body and your mind to work harder and continue for a longer time in the exercises.
Also, drinking coffee helps in enhancing the secretion of happiness hormones such as dopamine, which alleviates pain and improves the mood during exhausting exercises. Thus, thanks to the caffeine contained in coffee, you will enjoy the exercises and you will find them easier.
– What is the best time to drink coffee before exercises?
If you are used to practice exercises in the morning time, it will be better to drink your coffee one hour before the exercises for better results. The abdomen takes between 15 and 45 minutes to absorb caffeine, which makes the peak of its influence on the body after 30 to 75 minutes of drinking it.
However, you should also make sure to drink enough water beside coffee. Also, do not drink caffeine profusely because the excessive consumption of it may cause diarrhea, which increase the possibility of dehydration of the body.
