According to the Norwegian Telegram Bureau (NTB), a couple of cups of coffee before physical training can reduce discomfort in the muscles.

Robert Moti, a professor of physical performance and health at the University of Illinois has discovered that

“caffeine works on a nerve signal processing system in the brain and spinal cord that is actively involved in handling pain.”

And as a former competitive cyclist himself, he should know.

His findings bear out an earlier study conducted in 2003 at another American university. A year later, caffeine was withdrawn from the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) list of prohibited substances in consultation with World Anti-doping Agency (WADA).

If you don’t feel like training, though, you could always sit back with a nice aromatic cup of java and read his study. It appeared in April’s issue of the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism.
