Coconut Oil (Virgin)
I am not a regular coffee drinker.
In fact I can count on my hands how many cups of coffee I’ve had over the past few years.
It was not until my wife Angela introduced me to this Super Power Coffee concoction that I drink now 5X per week.
For you coffee drinkers out there that are looking to get more energized, focused and alert for your training performance than check out this awesome recipe for your pre workout super drink.
1-2 Cups of Brewed Coffee
1 Table Spoon Coconut Oil
BCAA – Branched Chain Amino Acids
Whey Protein (Optional)
Combine coffee and coconut oil in a blender and mix for 1 minute and drink. You can add sweetener for taste.
Super Pre Training Energy Coffee
This is great concoction if you want super energy for your training and workout sessions.
The coffee is a stimulant and the caffeine releases fatty acids into the blood stream available for burning during your workout.
Virgin coconut oil is one of the world’s premier natural thermogenic agents. Coconut oil is the edible oil extracted from the meat of matured coconuts. Virgin coconut oil, on the other hand, is extracted from fresh coconut meat by wet-milling, sun-drying, presses, centrifuges, or grating.
The coconut oil is a medium-chained triglycerides (medium chained fatty acid) with a great source of energy. They are not used by the body like fats, but rather like carbohydrates. This means that medium-chain fatty acids do not circulate freely in the blood or get stored away to add to body weight. Instead, they are sent to the liver, where they are immediately converted to energy.
That’s right: This fat is not stored as fat but directly used up to generate energy, which speeds your metabolism.
Branched Chain Amino Acids will increase protein synthesis and preserve the breakdown of muscle during training. You will experience decreased DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and faster recovery between training sessions.
