Pre-workout Coffee

Multiple studies have found that between 60 and 80 percent of Americans drink a cup of coffee every day. 

I don’t know about you, but I love my morning cup (or two) before getting going. However, rarely is coffee seen as a precursor for exercise. Here in this article, we will look at some studies that suggest coffee can be enjoyed as part of an active lifestyle.

coffee before workout

First, WEIGHT LOSS can be a result of coffee before exercise. A study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism found that athletes who drank caffeine pre-exercise burned 15% more calories for three hours post-exercise. As we know, the more calories we burn, the more fat we melt off!

Another advantage of pre-workout coffee is a DECREASE IN PAIN. University of Illinois scientists found that consuming two to three cups of coffee one hour before 30 minutes of high-intensity exercise actually reduced perceived muscle pain. If muscle pain is decreasing, muscle strength and endurance must be increasing!

Lastly, an interesting study was done at Coventry University. Performed by sports scientists on animals, this study found that caffeine helped offset the loss of muscle strength that occurs with aging. The scientists determined that coffee in moderation may help PRESERVE OVERALL FITNESS and reduce the risk of age-related injuries.

In conclusion, by simply implementing our coffee habits in with our exercise schedules, there will be several health benefits for us to reap. If you are a coffee lover like me, why not add some value to your habit by using it as a pre-workout supplement?

Connor Coman

Connor Coman works as a certified personal trainer in the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area. His training experience stems from a background in competitive gymnastics, track & field, and collegiate baseball. 

Learning from trainers and coaches since a young age, Coman's daily life became influenced by structured nutrition and exercise regimens at the age of 15. When competitive sports came to an end after studying nutrition & exercise science at Queens College in New York, Coman continued the path of health and wellness by becoming a certified personal trainer.

After months of training in New York, he switched coasts and began personal training at Golds Gym Hollywood in Los Angeles, CA. In his fifth month, he was named Personal Trainer of the Month. Coman spent a year training a wide range of clientele at Golds Gym before being inspired to start his own personal training business.

Today, he trains mostly out of Ultra Body Fitness, an exclusive private training gym in Hollywood. Focusing on weight training in the gym, his client list includes both men and women, celebrity, and elderly. Coman continues to learn as he, himself, has a personal trainer, Charles Glass. Glass is known as the "Godfather" of personal training. 

Coman believes that there is one common goal among exercisers and that is "to lose body fat." He states that this can be done by first "making a true commitment to oneself to take the necessary steps in order to gain control of one's physical health." Those steps include "cardiovascular training, resistance training, and above all, proper nutrition."

Coman has recently found a new passion in writing and acting. He now uses his background, knowledge, and experience in the field of training to stay sharp on his path towards his goals in the entertainment industry.
