Staring at the ceiling…


…that is what will happen with most of us if we drink too much caffeine during the day (or is it just us getting old?). But in some sports, a good shot of caffeine can help you boost when things are not looking so bright. There are many forms in which extra doses of caffeine are sold on the market, we have even encountered gummy bear type candy that was loaded with the stuff (we just want to warn the younger readers here: do not take candy that is supposed to be for mom or dad. And for you mom and dad, lock the stuff away please!)

Anyway, we found some interesting article that gives some advise on caffeine and the use in sports. We hope you find it useful ! We are off for a cup of decaf, it is past lunch time! 



You are the reason… baby!
