Drink a cup of two of green tea half and hour before cardio. It will give you more endurance, you will sweat more, and feel better after the workout.

Tea before exercise
by: Julian

Drinking green tea before exercise has several advantages, as described here.

Green Tea Diet and Exercise - Visceral Fat Burning and Stamina

I think this is the way to go - drink tea before exercise, not after exercise, especially if your goal is to burn fat and lose weight.

Personally I am not aware of any specific side effects either before and after exercise.

Complete discussion of any side effects associated with tea can be found at

I place in 5K races for my age group...

Just sayin.' ;) If you've been on this site for awhile, you'll know I'm the "Ellen" that Julian wrote about who lost 25 pounds eating a plant-based diet with green tea.

I also resumed running and found my endurance and energy was greatly enhanced. I did my first marathon in '10 and felt like I could keep going after 26.2 miles. Now almost 60, I was the 5th oldest to finish (Palm Beaches Marathon).

I always drink a cup or two of tea about an hour before any race. (I need to give myself time to park and do all that you need to do before the race starts). But a half hour if I'm just going out for a quick 3 mile training run at home.

Many runners I know drink coffee before running. I think green tea is so much safer/better for the heart etc. I used to drink a LOT of coffee.

Glad you're still here, Julian!
