Study claims coffee reduces pain of exercise

The gist of this study is that moderate amounts of coffee result in lessened pain during and after exercise, regardless whether or not the subject consumed coffee habitually.

What do you think, good or bad?

Bad, definitely. It's supposed to hurt.

No, it supposed to cause a stress which you will heal from causing an adaptation. If you are having trouble getting the intensity high enough to produce enough stress, this is good. If you are causing too much stress and overtrain, this is bad.

This is what I was thinking.

But what about when performance is critical and stress/adaptation is irrelevant? For example, an important race. A little bit of coffee to decrease pain and therefore increase output?

Re: Study claims coffee reduces pain of exercise

Yes, now we're back to the training/competing dichotomy. I should have mentioned that as well, yes, if you are competing it's a different story.
