Caffeine Before Workout for Training Gains

Caffeine Before Workout for Training Gains
Weight training involves creating muscle damage and inflammation. The muscles react by repairing the damage and triggering muscle hypertrophy, which reduces stress in the future. However, excessive damage and inflammation prevent training gains and can lead to long-term metabolic problems and disease. A Brazilian study showed decreases in markers of inflammation and muscle damage in rats subjected to chronic low levels of exercise and caffeine. When weight training, balance stress and recovery to achieve the greatest gains. Taking caffeine before a workout might help protect muscles against excessive damage and inflammation and help promote training gains. (Experimental Physiology, published online)
