A cup of coffee can help you with your workout.

Improved circulation  Japanese researchers studied the effects of coffee on circulation in people who did not regular drink coffee. The participants consumed  5-ounces of either regular or decaffeinated coffee. Later, scientists gauged finger blood flow, a measure of how well the body’s smaller blood vessels work.
The people who drank “regular” (caffeinated) coffee experienced a 30 percent increase in blood flow over a 75-minute period, compared to those who drank the (decaf) coffee.
   Better circulation, better workout—your muscles need oxygen!
