cafe_sportCaffeine and sport

The link below holds a great article detailing the effects of coffee for the more athletic of you out there; it poses a balanced argument for the use of coffee detailing a common sense trial and error approach to finding the exact level of caffeine required for you to perform at your peak. What works for some may not for others.

I couldn’t say the exact caffeine I consume but the effects on me are clear from a physiological perspective. I consume 3 coffees at routine times during the day to function my best stopping at 2pm to allow the effects to calm down towards the evening. When playing Tennis I do notice a performance boost especially with my concentration levels, this often turns poor tennis mediocre.
