You already know it perks you up and improves focus, but it also has been found to support a boost in muscle strength, intensity and fat loss during workouts. And it works especially well when taken with green tea extract. Caffeine promotes an increase in the amount of fat that gets released from your fat cells. Meanwhile, green tea boosts metabolic rate, which is the way the body burns fat in the bloodstream. Taking these compounds together may just be the support necessary to ensure that the fat that caffeine has released will get burned up for energy.
Take 200-400 milligrams of caffeine two or three times per day, with one dose 30-60 minutes before workouts.
