Can Coffee Energize Your Workout?

The U.S. News & World Report article linked below claims that caffeine could potentially be a valuable addition to your pre-exercise routine.  It argues that a dose of caffeine could delay muscle fatigue and keep you focused and energetic.

However, the article warns, if you do choose to use caffeine:

“Sleep problems, headaches, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, or maybe even a heart attack can result.”

Frankly, the risks seem to greatly outweigh any potential benefits.
