Caffeine Can Improve Muscle Contraction!

It is widely known that caffeine has a stimulatory effect on your central nervous system meaning it can enhance focus, concentration and energy levels. Perhaps a little less known is the enhanced muscle contractility it delivers too, allowing you to contract your muscles harder, helping you maximise every single rep!

For best results consume approx 150mg caffeine, the same as you get from an average cup of coffee, around 30mins before your workout.

Alternatively, if coffee isn’t your thing, you could opt for a caffeine capsule….Optimum Health Ultimate Caffeine consists of 200mg capsules.

If you wish to minimise desensitisation to caffeine then try to limit your casual coffee consumption, or have a capsule instead for a more concentrated source of caffeine.

NOTE: Exercise caution when consuming caffeine if you have high blood pressure or heart palpitations.
