Is black coffee a pre-workout?

What is the best pre-workout coffee?

Is coffee a pre-workout?

Can I leave pre-workout overnight?
Yes, you can mix it early, but I would avoid doing so more than 12 hours before you plan to drink it. Also, make sure that it remains at the same temperature for that time to avoid it losing its effectiveness. For more information on when to take your pre-workout, read our blog.
