Using Caffeine as a Training Tool
However, with habitual caffeine consumption, the affectedness of caffeine is greatly reduced. This is why many people will reduce and cut out the stimulant for a couple weeks prior to the event.
But I got to thinking, why not just cut out caffeine altogether, and use it to give your key workouts a boost as well?

I do drink coffee and tea very regularly, probably daily. But it has nothing to do with caffeine, I simply like the taste of coffee or strong tea.
The plan is to be able to use a pre-workout coffee as a stimulant once or possibly twice a week as a stimulant for hard workouts.
I’m hoping this has two outcomes:
1) Better sleep
2) Better workouts
We’ll see! I’ve been cutting back for a few days and today I’m just having a decalf coffee. This is completely anecdotal but may be worth a try.
I noticed absolutely nothing different. Blah! How boring?! Of course, this was no double-blind study, but I didn’t feel any different. So, back to sipping on my AM pre-prandial coffee 🙂
