Is it okay to drink coffee after a workout?
I get conflicting answer to this question. Some report says drinking coffee after a workout is good while some report says otherwise. Anyone know which is the correct answer (with link to medical report etc.)?
I have been researching coffee and the health benefits of it for about 18 months now. I have my own coffee blog that lays the health benefits out. There was one blog that is titled "Coffee improves an athlete's endurance." You can find it at www.citmorning.blogspot.com. After reading that, I hope you will find, in summary, that it is okay to drink coffee after a workout and that it may actually help you with the pain from the workout.
There's nothing wrong with drinking coffee after a workout, however because coffee contains caffeine which is a stimulant and it's usual to want stimulantion just prior to your workout rather than after when your muscles should be allowed to continue working (which they do) on their own it would be more benifical to rehydrate your muscles with non caffeine drinks.
