Coffee can be a great way of helping you get your six pack. It acts as a mild stimulant and speeds up your metabolism. We often drink coffee to give ourselves a pick up in the morning. You’ll find that after a short period of time you generally feel more awake and lucid which are the common “Side effect” of the caffeine affecting your nervous system.
The caffeine effects you in a very similar way to many other types of stimulant such as ephedrine or and illegal form called amphetamines. Caffeine of course is a natural chemical found in coffee so in small doses will not cause undue harm. It is also much milder and won’t be prone to give you anxiety which can be severely crippling for some.
The price come in the form of possible addiction because Many people make it a habit to drink coffee more often than needed and this can lead to a dependence without you realising it. Caffeine is addictive because of the effect it has on you as a stimulant. We wouldn’t suggest you drank coffee to the extent it gave you a dependence but it can have a remarkable effect on the development of our six-pack.
As mentioned, caffeine will act as a stimulant so this means that you heart rate will rise and you will start to burn more calories than you would do normally. This is great news because you can work out after you have drunk a cup of coffee and the stimulant effect will work to provide you with more energy and also burn belly fat at an accelerated rate. Furthermore you can also take aspirin with coffee or anything containing caffeine for that matter and further complement the effect. Aspirin thins the blood and works as a very effective anti-inflammatory. While your muscles are being pumped by the amphetamine affect of the caffeine, you’ll find that you will be able to train a little longer as a result of the aspirin which reduced the painful swelling in your muscles. Along with the effect of thinning in the blood stream, you muscles still receive a fast plentiful supply of oxygen rich blood that keeps you alert and full of energy.
If you stick to having a coffee before a work out to help complement your weight loss then it would be difficult to develop a dependence. Even a work out once a day after a coffee will work wonders for your fat loss. This simple method has been adopted by weight lifters for years in order to lean off prior to competitions. Go into any serious gym and ask a few guys how they use it in their diet plan. You will then be able to gauge what best works for you and benefit from the super fast results. Caffeine can be found in several beverages. Drinks such as red bull and even chocolate contain caffeine. Caffeine based drinks can be purchased very easily from any supermarket and make a great addition to your supplements.
The only other thing I would suggest is drinking plenty of water while. Caffeine acts a diuretic which make you need to urinate more than you would normally. It is essential that you maintain your hydration by replenishing it with pure water while working out. Neglecting this will give you cramps and possible cause exhaustion. Keep a bottle of water on standby and sip it as you go. I’d like some comments about this so please let me know how you got on with regards to progress of fat loss, six pack definition vs. amount of caffeine consumed. It would be interesting to see a pattern on affective range.
