The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that prior caffeine ingestion would enhance neural recovery after isometric fatiguing maximal intermittent plantar flexions, and thus would enhance the recovery of voluntary muscle strength. After a familiarisation session, 13 males randomly participated in two experimental trials where they ingested either caffeine (~6 mg/kg) or identical placebo pills 1 h prior to testing. Subjects were tested for electromyogram (EMG) activity and evoked V… CONTINUE READING
