Like Paul's @macdaddy4848 shirt says 'quad damn' it's Friday and the end of another week is upon us!
Squats obviously help to build your leg muscles (including your quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves), but they also create an anabolic environment, which promotes body-wide muscle building. So squats can actually help you improve both your upper and lower body strength.
How's your squat? Are you quad dominant? Do you need some work on ankle flexibility? Time to get those movements fine tuned and get after those performance goals!
Happy Friday!! # friyay # jumpingintotheweekend # quaddamn # squats # buildthoselegs # performance # goals # functional # reforge
One stimulant whose effects have been thoroughly studied is caffeine. A general consensus is that 3mg of caffeine per kg of bodyweight will improve aerobic performance. The effect of caffeine on power, sprint and strength events is still unclear.  Although, during a longer strength / power session the reduced sense of perceived exertion could be beneficial. As mentioned previously if it is dosed properly caffeine will improve aerobic performance. The negative effects of caffeine are that it impairs fine motor control, can lead to more impulsive decisions and can dehydrate the user as caffeine is a diuretic.
