Will Coffee Help Your Workout?

A new study on cyclists found that a morning cup of coffee boosts performance in both sexes. One cup of coffee contains approximately 95mg of caffeine. Caffeine is a known stimulant and is used by many to jump-start their day. It has a stimulating effect on muscles, can increase the body’s ability to burn fat, and also can increase feeling of wellness by releasing endorphins (the happy chemical in our brains). While it does have benefits, it also carries risk of upset stomach, insomnia, irritability, and cardiac effects in high enough levels and should be used with caution.
