    Caffeine and working out, how does it affect you?

    I tried working out after taking some energy tea drink and my heart rate BPM went up and I got a little, almost jittery, but felt like I had no energy. It was definitely detrimental to my workout.

    Have you had a similar experience?

    How does caffeine affect your workouts?




    Additional info: I never really drink caffeinated drinks, usually just milk, juice and water for my fibras.

    I've been drinking a sugarfree redbull before/during every workout for a few months now. I love it.

    1 200mg caffine pill before I hit the road to drive to the gym = crush my workout. I makes me really excited to lift.

    There's very few studies on caffeine and it's effects on strength and it's still up for debate as to whether it has any effect at all.

    I dont like caffeine before working out. I feel as if I have too much energy, but more like jittery energy. And it detracts away from focusing on the actual lift.

    It doesn't make me any stronger but it can help if you feel sleepy before a workout. Also, sometimes my head feels all stuffed up and my ears sound plugged if I take too much.

    if you snort a big fat rail of coffee grounds right before you workout, you will increase your bench by 75 lbs before your heart explodes.

    I'm on EC stack now, and 200mg +eph or whatever doesn't seem to do anything for me. I've fallen asleep like 1 hour after taking it before.
