The purpose of the present study was to examine the acute effects of a caffeine-containing supplement (SUPP) on 1 repetition maximum (1RM) bench press and leg extension strength, as well as time to exhaustion (TTE), during cycle ergometry at a power output that corresponded to 80% of VO2peak. The study used a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, crossover design. Twenty-one untrained men (mean +/- SD age = 23.0 +/- 2.6 yr) were randomly assigned to take either the SUPP or placebo (PLAC) first… CONTINUE READING
