Coffee is the original pre-workout elixir, thanks to a number of natural stimulants including caffeine, theobromine, theophylline, and chlorogenic acid. That hyperdrive feeling you get is caused by caffeine stimulating the release and activity of adrenaline, a stress hormone that triggers temporary superpowers so you can fight, run from danger, or, for our purposes, crush a session in the gym on the road or on the mats.
According to a studies published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, subjects did more squats when they drank coffee or took caffeine plus decaf coffee, compared to being given caffeine tablets, decaf coffee, or a placebo.
“Caffeine can improve exercise performance whether it is consumed before, spread throughout, or taken late in exercise when fatigue is increasing,” says Carwyn Sharp PhD, Chief Science Officer for the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
But with so many different ways to brew and savor your cup of Joe, we wondered: Which method best helps you break your personal records at the gym? According to Luke Docherty, Director of Coffee for That Cold Stuff, the answer is, hands down, the coldest, slowest method out there.
“That Cold Stuffs brewing method delivers a bold coffee concentrate that’s uber caffeinated and 62 percent less acidic.” Luke says. We use time, not heat, to extract the caffeine. All that is left for you to do is simply dilute the coffee extract with cold water or drink it straight. Then buckle up and hold on for one of the most productive workouts you have ever experienced.
