  1. Can you drink coffee during a workout?

    No, you shouldn’t drink coffee DURING your workout.
    However, you can definitely drink your favorite cup of coffee before your workout… at least half an hour before starting your workout.
    I personally always prefer having coffee as a pre-workout drink. It gives me an instant energy boost and helps me do some extra reps. But I would advice you to have black coffee without sugar or any other toppings.

  2. During a workout??? If you’re able to drink anything(based on your type of workout that your referring to), you can drink coffee.
    “Should you drink coffee during your workout” may be a better question, which in part, depends on the type of workout.
    So, here’s the easiest way to answer that question.
    if you’re workout is cardiovascular, I don’t recommend it because caffeine is a vasoconstrictor and stimulator. It’s really the stimulator part that is negative as this will cause an increase in your heart rate, more so than the exercise itself. This really isn’t a good thing as your goal shouldn’t be raising your heart rate, but doing the most activity that naturally raises your heart rate to the point you are aiming for. Example: if you’re running to achieve 80% target heart rate, you will get there sooner with less exercise if drinking coffee than if you didn’t, which means your endurance will not increase as quickly.
    However, there is a growing body of evidence that supports drinking coffee/caffeine prior to doing activities like weight lifting as it can give you increased focus, and guess what else, yup, you got it stimulation!

  4. Can you? Yes. Should you? Probably not. Coffee contains caffeine and it is both a stimulant and a diuretic. You don’t want to have to pause your workout to urinate more often than normal.
