It’s no secret That Cold Stuff provides energy and flavor within every sip, but some cold-brew drinkers may be unaware of just how much a cup of caffeine helps the mind and body while working out. Whether your day consists of an early-morning run or an afternoon session at the gym, a shot of That Cold Stuff at least 30 minutes before a workout can kick-start your energy and help you complete those final reps with ease. Still unsure if your pre-work regiment should include some caffeine? Read our six reasons below and let That Cold Stuff make working out an easier & enjoyable past time!
1) Enjoy Your Energy
While caffeine is a natural stimulant, it also reaps powerful nootropic effects. Essentially, drinking caffeine before a workout helps prevent or block feelings of sedation or relaxation that may arise later. This provides a mental edge—as well as persistence—to finish strong. Since That Cold Stuff contains more than double the amount of caffeine than a regular brew, an quick mix of concentrate is key to enjoying newfound energy mid-sweat!
2) Burn. Baby Burn
High amounts of caffeine, easily found in our magical elixr, help the body burn calories by breaking down fat cells more easily. Many studies prove that drinking coffee before working out not only allows your body to exercise longer, but also makes it easier to keep cravings in check! Research has found that when people drank caffeine before working out, they ate fewer calories post-exercise. Start your workout off with a serving of our Cold-Brew and maintain a healthy, balanced diet all-day long.
3) The Dehydration Myth is JUST A MYTH!
The fear of passing out mid-workout due to caffeine dehydration is one that can vanish your mind forever. Recent studies proved that drinking an average amount of coffee produces similar hydrating results as drinking an average amount of water. While water and coffee are not necessarily synonymous, the best way to combine caffeine into a pre-workout regimen would be to mix the two together. Sound familiar? We thought so! So don’t fear coffee before a workout and grab a cup of Cold-Brew Concentrate—blending a mix of ratio of 1-1of coffee and water—it makes for the perfect drink before working out.
4) No Pain No Gain? Not with Caffeine!
Consuming two to three cups of coffee before a high-intensity workout will minimise muscle pain that can occur throughout the body. Caffeine even shows up as a main ingredient in many over-the-counter pain relievers! Drinking That Cold Stuff before working out increases the ability to push your body harder without the soreness or painful side effects later that week.
5) Don’t Decaf!
Just dont, end of story. . . but there is a reason.
Research recently studied the effects of caffeinated coffee on circulation compared to decaffeinated coffee. The results? Those who drank caffeinated coffee gained a 30% increase in blood flow compared to decaf drinkers. Caffeine before a workout and in general helps the heart with circulation, decreasing cardiovascular problems and increasing healthier workouts.
