The Effects Of Different Doses Of Caffeine On Endurance Cycling Time Trial Performance
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
16 well-trained cyclists performed at 75% VO2 max for 60 minutes at either 3 or 6mg/kg bodyweight caffeine in order to assess which dose was better. Improvements on distance gone for the 60 minutes were improvement in both groups, 4.2% improvement at 3mg/kg bodyweight and 2.9% improvement at 6mg/kg bdoyweight. The difference was not statistically significant, and they were seen as equally effective.
Heart rate was increased relative to placebo during exercise.
