Boost your workouts with a cup of joe!

Great news for people like me who love their coffee...a lot...and basically need it to function at all (see rolled-out-of-bed-straight-to-coffee-shop-this-morning photo as proof)! Coffee can boost your workout performance-whoohoo! Check it out: caffeine not only gives you more energy to tackle those burpees, hard walks or long runs but it also gets you in a good mood for your sweat session which can lead to more intense sessions. Something to remember though  is that caffeine is a diuretic (and too much can have a laxative effect), so if you're planning on drinking and sweating, make sure just have a cup or two and drink as much water to keep hydrated. Need more info on caffeine and performance...check out this study.
