  1. Drink coffee before a workout.

Your workouts will be twice as effective with coffee because it improves our stamina and circulation, while reducing pain and preserves muscles. Just make sure that your caffeine fix has no cream or sugar in it. Drink it black! (via thethings.com)

  1. Eat spicy food.

  1. Drink tea throughout the day.
