Researchers are reporting that drinking coffee after a rigorous workout may help rejuvenate muscles.

The researchers found that athletes who drank coffee with carbohydrate drinks had 66% more glycogen in their muscles four hours after they finished an intense regiment.

 "If you have 66% more fuel for the next day's training or competition, there is absolutely no question you will go farther or faster," said Dr. Hawley, the senior author of the study.

The study was conducted in four sessions after which the athletes were given either carbohydrate only or carbohydrate with caffeine. This was repeated after one week. The researchers found that athletes who drank caffeine with carbohydrate had 66% more glycogen in their muscles as compared to their peers who drank carbohydrate only.

The details of the study are published by The American Physiological Society.
