I used to drink a lot of coffee flavoured milk (latte) and energy drinks from early 2012 to early 2017. Now I'm drinking caffeinated tea and sport supplement drinks that contain caffeine. I only drink coffee if I'm really desperate for that instant Energy+25 and I'm not planning to workout that day.
What made you do the change from coffee/energy drinks into tea?
Do you have certain brands to recommend?
And what's with coffee and workout together?
Coffee usually gives me, uh, a laxative effect. Tea doesn't. Energy drinks were giving me the shakes too, which I didn't like so I dropped it. My medicine for asthma relief can already give me the shakes but that's something I cannot quit on as the benefits outshine the side-effects.
I'm currently trying out this tea called Instant Herbal Beverage by Herbalife, which is keeping me awake and focused quite nicely. But before that, I was drinking English Breakfast or Green Tea from Lipton or Dilmah (I'm in Australia.) For fruity flavours, I go with the Twinings brand.
There have been studies that caffeine enhances workouts. I can do an extra repetition or two with caffeine in my system than without it. sportsdietitians.com.au/factsheets...
