What if we told you there was something that would help you run faster, improve reaction times, and then recover faster post-exercise?
And it’s legal. Where can we get some of that stuff?
If you’re like most people, you already did this morning.
There’s more and more science showing that caffeine not only improves athletic performance, but now we’re learning it also helps your muscles recover faster after exercise too. It makes some sense right away if you think about it… assuming most races or competitions involve fixed distances, if caffeine helps you to run faster or perform better, it must have helped you to do something more efficiently.
Indeed, University of Birmingham (England) researchers tested the effect of caffeine on the rate which carbs are consumed during exercise. They found that the usage rate of carbohydrates was 26 percent higher in the cyclists receiving carbs with caffeine than in those receiving carbs without caffeine. The conclusion is that caffeine may have increased the rate of glucose absorption, giving muscles more fuel more quickly. The extrapolated effect on performance is the ability to work harder for a longer period of time without getting as fatigued.
But what if you’re already exhausted? Put a check mark in the caffeine and carb boxes again. A recent study showed that athletes carb-ed up and caffeinated had 66% more glycogen in their muscles four hours after finishing intense exercise. If you have 66% more fuel for the next day’s training or competition, there is absolutely no question you will go farther or faster,” said Dr. Hawley, senior author of the study.
Not that we’re not a little biased on the caffeine, but science sure seems to indicate that having caffeine before exercise, and carbs and caffeine after exercise is a win win.
