Bodybuilding supplements are one of the main things that those looking to gain muscle from their workout program place their hopes on.
Billions of dollars have been spent on labor supplements such as creatine, NO2, prohormones (when they were available), testosterone boosters, post workout shakes, and protein powder having to build muscle mass.
Most of these nutritional products can cost you anywhere between $ 15.00 to $ 70.00 a bottle / bucket, but the catch is that you have to buy several bottles / buckets for a one month's supply … so you are now easily spending hundreds of dollars per month on bodybuilding supplements!
Well, I'm here to inform you of something that is just as effective, if not more, than many of the most popular "muscle weight gain" supplements.
It's been around for centuries.
Everyone around you, including those that do not have a workout plan to build muscle weight, consume it everyday.
"Shops" that sell it are springing up all over the place.
You probably are already using it, but do not know the proper way to.
And if you do not buy the "name brand" or "popular brand" you can get it for pennies.
You probably already know what I'm getting at …
Now, before you start thinking "Coffee !! Geez. I thought Jonathan was going to tell me about some secret ingredient that no one seemed to know about. Tell me something I do not already know !! ", let me point out to you what coffee does and how to add it to your bodybuilding nutrition and workout routine.
Here's what coffee does:
1) Stimulates the nervous system, resulting in it being a powerful stimulant, which results in more alertness … exactly what you need for an intense workout. (Interesting how many bodybuilding supplements and "energy drinks" out on the market right now are specifically for "increasing workout intensity" … yet coffee does the same.)
2) It allows you to lift more weight / reps than when you do not drink coffee (before working out). (Again, some of the most expensive nutritional supplements claim to "immediately increase strength by 15%" or something like that).
3) It helps mask some of the pain associated with intensive weight training.
4) It boosts the metabolism. (Once again, some of the top workout supplements are geared towards, guess what … "increasing the metabolism").
5) Allows the body to use more fat for energy. (Yup, you know it … billions of dollars are spent annually on supplements that will "increase body fat utilization.")
And these are just some of the many things this wonder-drink accomplishes.
So, let me ask you, "Why in the world would you empty out your hard-earned bank account on products that give you the same effect that a good, old, strong cup of" java "or" joe "would give you? "
There have been many misleading "studies" published butly trying to criticizeize coffee consumption.
Well, I'm here to tell you that all of it is false (disclaimer: as long as you do not have some type of medical condition. ..
No, coffee will not raise your blood pressure to dangerous levels.
No, coffee does not dehydrate the body.
And what's beautiful is that you do not have to go and spend $ 8.00 on a cup of coffee at Starbucks or Caribou (even though I do love that stuff).
Simply buy the "espresso" version of your favorite coffee at your local grocery store.
Now, your body can become accustomed / immune to caffeine if you are constantly drinking it without a break.
Not that this will harm you, but it will lose its bodybuilding effects.
So, if you are a regular consumer of coffee, you should stop drinking anything with caffeine for at least 1-2 months.
After that, you can begin again.
Also, once you start drinking coffee regularly, only drink it for 4 weeks, then take 2 weeks off of it … to prevent the body from becoming accustomed to it.
You'll want to drink coffee 30 minutes before working out, to get the training effect, and one more time sometimes during the day (but not in the late afternoon or nighttime, to avoid it interfering with your sleeping patterns).
Make it as strong as you can tolerate it.
The blacker the coffee, the stronger it is.
Espresso is the strongest of all forms.
So, try this effective and cheap muscle building substance and get a nice little "punch" out of your bodybuilding workout program.
