Why exercise is better than drinking coffee at work

Melbourne, Dec 04 : Swapping your daily cup of caffeine with short bouts of intense exercise can help you perform better at your work place, it has been revealed.


According to the Daily Beast, a guy called Gregory Ferenstein replaced his regular trips to the barista with short bursts of intense exercise, News.com.au reported.

Ferenstein wrote in a post that whenever he needs a "pick-me-up", he finds a quiet corner and perform some form of body-weight exercise that jolts his heart up to at last 70 per cent of the maximal beats per minute.

He's been using the brain-training experiments at Quantified Mind to test his reaction time and short-term memory after the bursts of exercise, compared with coffee.

He found that his mental performance was 12 per cent better after a mini workout than on a coffee high.
