If a workout is one of those things you do first thing in the morning, then you must be familiar with the sluggish feeling of getting out of bed,and getting to the gym.
So what do you do?
You make your way to the coffee maker for that extra jolt.
But is caffeine before a workout a good idea?
Caffeine does more than just wake you up. It’s the most widely used stimulant/substance/drug (however way you want to call it) for getting that familiar jolt in the morning, the kick that you need to jumpstart the day.
Every day, millions of people all around the world consume caffeine to stay awake and ease fatigue. But there’s definitely more to it than just a fix.
While it usually gets bad rap for its adverse effects like jitters, anxiety, palpitations (usually from having too much of it too soon), moderate consumption can give you the best bang for the cup.
Here are 7 surprising ways caffeine brings benefits to our day-to-day.

Did you know timing when you drink coffee intake may improve your life? In the morning when the alarm goes off, the first thing many people think of is getting a coffee fix.
