Caffeine and Endurance

Apr 2, 2012

There's been a lot of talk recently in the performance world as to whether or not caffeine will improve calorie burning at rest and during exercise. The answer is 'yes,' but it's not to the extent that we all wish it could be! It has been shown to increase sympathetic nervous system activity, which releases fatty acids from fat tissue and other storage places. It also enhances the processes that cause fat breakdown. These enhancements, however, are only acute at rest and during low-intensity exercise. If you're looking for more fat-burn, kick out the coffee and kick up the intensity of your workout!
