Experts report that drinking a cup of coffee about one hour before you work out is optimal, and can play an important role in your overall workout performance. Join OG today as we further explore how your favorite OG Gourmet Beverages, combined with OGX FENIX™ Shakes, can offer you the assistance you need to go the extra mile!

Before You Hit The Gym – Take It In – Drink It Up – Fill Your Cup with OG – 1 Hour Before You Go!

“Caffeine is a stimulant that acts on the central nervous system, the heart, and possibly the ‘center’ that controls blood pressure,” all of which play a vital role in helping your mind and body push harder in a workout, says Heidi Skolnik, M.S., a sports nutritionist and owner of Nutrition Conditioning, Inc. She further states that “caffeine is quickly absorbed from the stomach within 15 to 45 minutes of consumption, hitting its peak stimulatory effects between 30 and 75 minutes. And, it can also increases the release of feel-good neurotransmitters like dopamine, which affects pain receptors and mood while you’re working out.”  

Simply put, an advanced cup of OG Black before your workout can help you maintain your stamina and help you power through those last few reps or push-ups, when you otherwise might want to throw in the towel. In addition, researchers have found that when people are caffeinated before their workout, they ate fewer calories during the remainder of the day and had a much easier time controlling their cravings as well.

Feel The Burn – Work It Out – Drink It Up – But Don’t Go Overboard with Caffeine – Stay Hydrated!

While a cup of OG Black before you work out can be the perfect complement to your exercise regime, too much caffeine can have a laxative effect – which is certainly not an ideal situation during your workout. In addition, too much caffeine can lead to dehydration. Staying hydrated is not only key to your overall health, it is extremely important during your physical workouts. Your body will need more fluid than just an 8oz cup of OG Black before you hit the gym, and pairing your brew with an additional 7-12 ounces of water will keep you hydrated throughout your workout.

Love Working Out with the Help of OG’s Gourmet Beverages – But Have Trouble Falling Asleep?

What if you love the burn felt when working out, but you can’t fall asleep at night? One very important thing to note – you should never replace a good night’s sleep with extra caffeine to compensate.  Sleep is just as important as exercise, as sleep is imperative for your body to recover and it helps regulate your appetite. If you struggle to fall asleep at your regular bedtime, you may want to switch to a morning workout and then enhance it further with your favorite OG Gourmet brew!
