THE ROLE OF COFFEE IN FITNESS.

Coffee and fitness

People care more and more about their bodies, which leads them to learn about fitness by eating healthy food and doing physical activities regularly. However, what discourages them is the fact that they have to change their habits. Good news, no need to stop drinking coffee because it has proven beneficial effects for people who do fitness.

 

COFFEE IS A GOOD DRINK FOR SPORTS IF IT IS CONSUMED WITH MODERATION:

Coffee can be an interesting drink when you play sports and when you want to lose weight. Indeed, caffeine (the active substance in coffee) stimulates the secretion of adrenaline, which has the effect of increasing the basal metabolism and thereby the burning of fat. Which makes it an Effective Pre-Workout Drink.

Coffee has also the virtue of accentuating the effects of analgesics, which can promote the alleviation of pain related to aches caused by training.

Consumption of 3 to 4 mg/kg body weight of caffeine is the optimal ratio having an impact on the body (two cups = 200mg).

 

COFFEE IS AN ALLY FOR YOUR DIET:

Traci Mann, Ph.D. in Nutrition, explains that with this multitude of research on sugary and unhealthy beverages, we had the feeling that coffee was being left behind while drinking coffee is actually a good way to absorb fewer calories, but only if you drink it alone (without milk or sugar).

 

CAFFEINE WILL PROMOTE MUSCLE RECOVERY AFTER BIG PHYSICAL EFFORT:

A study by "The Journal of Applied Physiology" has proven that drinking coffee can help you recover from the training and this by recovering up to 66% more glycogen four hours after the exercises.

 

AFTER THE EFFORT, IT IS ALWAYS PREFERABLE TO DRINK HOT BEVERAGES RATHER THAN COLD:

You allied for fitness

There are some helpful products in SartMart that will help you keep your coffee warm if you plan to go outside, including The Stainless Steel Thermo Cup Insulated Flasks, the 400CC Portable Stainless Steel Flask, the 350ML Stainless Steel Thermos Flask, or the Stainless Steel Insulated Flask.

Water bottle

It is also advisable to take water after the training to avoid dehydration (especially on hot days). SartMart proposes a 1000ML Sport Water Bottle, which is a useful training partner.

Remember that coffee taken at too high a dose (beyond three cups) has the drawback of reducing the body's reserves of vitamins B and C, and minerals, and altering the recovery time (for those who make bodybuilding for example).
