BackgroundCaffeine is a widely used ergogenic aid with most research suggesting it confers the greatest effects during endurance activities. Despite the growing body of literature around the use of caffeine as an ergogenic aid, there are few recent meta-analyses that quantitatively assess the effect of caffeine on endurance exercise.ObjectivesTo summarise studies that have investigated the ergogenic effects of caffeine on endurance time-trial performance and to quantitatively analyse the… Expand
Challenging the Myth of Non-Response to the Ergogenic Effects of Caffeine Ingestion on Exercise Performance
TLDR
Data from an investigation where the ergogenic effect of acute caffeine intake was measured eight times over a placebo in the same individuals and under the same conditions shows that all individuals responded to caffeine when caffeine is compared to a placebo on multiple and repeated testing sessions. Expand
Effects of acute ingestion of caffeine on team sports performance: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The acute ingestion of a moderate dose of caffeine had a small but significant positive effect on several aspects related to physical performance in team sports. Expand
Effects of caffeine supplementation on muscle endurance, maximum strength, and perceived exertion in adults submitted to strength training: a systematic review and meta-analyses
TLDR
Caffeine supplementation showed a significant ergogenic effect on muscle endurance and maximum strength in the bench press exercise and more investigations are needed to clarify the contradictions in its effects regarding lower-body exercises. Expand
Placebo Effect of Caffeine on Maximal Strength and Strength Endurance in Healthy Recreationally Trained Women Habituated to Caffeine
TLDR
The use of the placebo effect of caffeine seemed an ineffective strategy to enhance muscle strength and strength endurance during the BP exercise in women with mild–moderate consumption of caffeine. Expand
Genetic Modifiers of Caffeine and Endurance Performance in Athletes
TLDR
Whether variation in the CYP1A2 gene and the HTR2A gene, which encodes serotonin receptors and may affect caffeine response, modify the ergogenic effects of caffeine during a 10-km cycling time trial is determined. Expand
Caffeine and Cognitive Functions in Sports: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The results of the 13 studies suggest that the intake of a low/moderate dose of caffeine before and/or during exercise can improve self-reported energy, mood, and cognitive functions, such as attention; it may also improve simple reaction time, choice response time, memory, or fatigue, however, this may depend on the research protocols.

Effects of Combining Caffeine and Sodium Bicarbonate on Exercise Performance: A Review with Suggestions for Future Research
  • Jozo Grgic
  • Medicine
  • Journal of dietary supplements
  • 2020
TLDR
Critically review studies that explored the isolated and combined effects of caffeine and sodium bicarbonate ingestion on exercise performance to discuss some of the possible reasons for the discrepancy in findings and provide suggestions for future studies. Expand
The Effect of Dietary Supplements on Endurance Exercise Performance and Core Temperature in Hot Environments: A Meta-analysis and Meta-regression
TLDR
Exercising in the heat negatively affected the efficacy of many dietary supplements, indicating that further research is needed and current guidelines for performance in hot environments likely require revision. Expand
A Randomised, Placebo-Controlled, Crossover Study Investigating the Optimal Timing of a Caffeine-Containing Supplement for Exercise Performance
TLDR
In ingestion of a pre-exercise supplement containing 200 mg caffeine 35 min before exercise appeared optimal for improved performance in a subsequent fatiguing time trial, possibly by reducing the perception of effort. Expand
The Effects of Acute Caffeine Supplementation on Performance in Trained CrossFit Athletes
TLDR
Caffeine’s ergogenic effect is present during CrossFit; however, future investigations should establish caffeine’'s efficacy during other CrossFit protocols and among female athletes. Expand

Acute effects of caffeine-containing energy drinks on physical performance: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
ED ingestion improved performance in muscle strength and endurance, endurance exercise tests, jumping and sport-specific actions, however, the improvement in performance was associated with taurine dosage. Expand
Effects of caffeine ingestion on exercise testing: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The results from this meta-analysis confirm the ergogenic effects of caffeine, particularly for endurance testing that use Tlim protocols, particularly in studies that use time-to-exhaustion protocols. Expand
Ergogenic Effects of Caffeine on Simulated Time-Trial Performance Are Independent of Fitness Level
Background: The primary aim of this study was to compare the ergogenic effects of caffeine on cycling performance in endurance-trained and recreationally active participants. Methods:Expand
The Metabolic and Performance Effects of Caffeine Compared to Coffee during Endurance Exercise
TLDR
It is illustrated that both caffeine (5 mg/kg/BW) and coffee consumed 1 h prior to exercise can improve endurance exercise performance. Expand
Caffeine's Ergogenic Effects on Cycling: Neuromuscular and Perceptual Factors.
TLDR
The results suggest that augmented strength and motor-unit recruitment, rather than reductions in pain and effort, may underlie caffeine's ergogenic effect on endurance exercise. Expand
The effect of caffeine ingestion on 8 km run performance in a field setting
TLDR
It is concluded that ingestion of 3 mg · kg−1 body mass of caffeine can improve absolute 8 km run performance in an ecologically valid race setting. Expand
Ergogenic effects of low doses of caffeine on cycling performance.
TLDR
The authors conclude that caffeine preparations of 2 and 3 mg/kg enhanced performance, but future work should aim to explain the considerable interindividual variability of the drug's ergogenic properties. Expand
Effect of Caffeine on Sport-Specific Endurance Performance: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Caffeine ingestion can be an effective ergogenic aid for endurance athletes when taken before and/or during exercise in moderate quantities (3-6 mg·kg−1 body mass). Expand
Exercise and Sport Performance with Low Doses of Caffeine
TLDR
The ergogenic effect of low caffeine doses appears to result from alterations in the central nervous system and athletes need to determine whether the ingestion of ~200 mg of caffeine before and/or during training and competitions is ergogenic on an individual basis. Expand
Effects of caffeine on time trial performance in sedentary men
TLDR
The ability to do more exercise after caffeine ingestion, without an accompanying increase in effort sensation, could motivate sedentary men to participate in exercise more often and so reduce adverse effects of inactivity on health. Expand
