Coffee is packed full of health benefits including antioxidants, vitamins & minerals which not only benefit your workouts, they also come in handy for hitting your fitness goals too.
Mental Focus & Metabolic Rate
Coffee is known to increase your metabolic rate & mental focus. Allowing you to stay more alert, increase your workout duration & create energy to fit in those extra reps or miles. Sounds ideal?
When to take?
Caffeine has been shown to stay in your bloodstream providing elevated alertness for up to three hours. So when timed right, coffee can be used to reduce fatigue, giving you that boost to go further.
For optimum performance within your workout research shows that caffeine starts to take effect from around 20-45 minutes post consumption. Each individual is different, so test when you enjoy your Future Self Coffee to maximise your peak during your workout.
“Caffeine for me takes around 20 minutes to start affecting the body, I like having it about 30 minutes before I exercise." - Mo Farah
Post Workout Positives
Coffee doesn't only help during your workout, it continues to benefit the body post workout too with a range of benefits.
Coffee contains polyphenols, (a micronutrient), which has been shown to reduce inflammation, reducing recovery time & help cut back on post-workout muscle soreness. A win-win!
