What if you could burn more fat every time you work out? It just makes sense to maximize the time, effort, discipline...not to mention the extra laundry you're doing!
It turns out you don't have to spend a fortune on pre-workout supplements, which are full of artificial crap anyway. All you need is...COFFEE! It's a simple, cheap hack if you make your own. You just need to have the right amount (200 mg caffeine TOTAL) at the right time (about 45 minutes before exercise).
How does it work? Caffeine basically makes working out less miserable. It delays fatigue, enhances endurance, and reduces your perception of muscle pain. Oh, and it mobilizes fat stores by slowing down the breakdown of muscle glycogen, which means you're burning a higher percentage of fat calories when you're training.
Just do me a favor before you try this out...talk to your doctor if you're pregnant or planning to have a baby, if you have high blood pressure, heart rhythm problems, osteoporosis, fibrocystic breasts, or any health condition, or if you think you're sensitive to caffeine. From my research, you really shouldn't exceed 400 mg of caffeine per day. If you keep it at 400 mg or below, you're most likely going to reap the benefits of caffeine without the bad side effects.
