Ask yourself a simple question: How many coffees do you consume daily? Or, if you are not an avid coffee drinker than how many do you drink per week, month or year? Although the question was centered on the quantity of the drink, the more important question is "what do you add to the coffee?". Coffee in its raw, black form offers no nutritional or caloric value. When looking at a nutritional index of coffee you will see an overwhelming number of zeros across all columns including: calories, fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. So nutrition wise, coffee appears to be comparable to water.
The recent trend in single serve coffee begs the following question:

Eccentric contractions is a type of muscle movement where the muscle elongates when placed under tension. This is the opposite of concentric muscle contractions, where tension is increased as the muscle is shortened. When you think of lifting weights, most people typically think of concentric type movements (i.e. bicep curls); however both contractions are occurring. For example: when you are performing a squat, you are eccentrically loading the muscle as you lower yourself (muscle is stretching), and concentrically loading the muscle when you spring back up (muscle is shortening). Eccentric muscle contractions have been correlated with increased muscle growth. This can be attributed to the fact that contracting muscle under a stretch or elongation can produce a greater force than a shortening muscle. It has been noted that eccentric exercises results in a greater increase in muscle power with lower oxygen consumption compared to concentric exercises (Hackney et al, 2008).
Yoga is a physical and mental discipline that has been around for more than 2,000 years (Morone & Greco, 2007. It originated in the Indian culture and there are eight branches of yoga.

The Truth about Lactic Acid:Lactic Acid is a by-product of anaerobic metabolism. In the first 2-3 minutes of any cardio exercise, typically you have shortness of breath, possible burning sensations and a feeling of fatigue. These feelings are attributed to your body switching metabolic states (from anaerobic to aerobic metabolism) in which aerobic metabolism is much more efficient. When your body cannot meet the demands of your aerobic state, the substrate pyruvate builds up in your muscles and is converted to lactic acid.
