Want to know how coffee can boost your workout? Let’s get started with why we have decided to write this post.
A few of my girls have mentioned that it can be hard to get up and train in the morning but don’t have the luxury of being able to train in the afternoon. Some people also find it easier to train in the morning as afternoons can become busy with appointments. You can also become fatigued from the days work and may be more prone to cancel an afternoon fitness session.
So how can you boost your energy without eating and feeling bloated before a workout?
Black coffee can help boost your workout in the morning because it provides energy and has fat burning properties. Check out the 5 reasons for having a small black coffee or coffee shot before your workout.

Increased performance – There have been studies that show a black coffee can boost your workout by providing you energy to train harder and longer. A great way to take the edge off those dreaded morning sessions!
Mental focus – As well as physical performance coffee can help you mental focus when working out! They do say that training is part psychological, coffee can help to block that fatigue feeling and help reduce pain signals to the brain.
