Effects of caffeine and carbohydrate mouth rinses on repeated sprint performance


Full text not available from this repository.


Our purpose was to examine the effectiveness of carbohydrate and caffeine mouth rinses in enhancing repeated sprint ability. The effects of carbohydrate or caffeine mouth rinses on intermittent sprints have not been examined previously.

We conclude that carbohydrate and (or) caffeine mouth rinses may rapidly enhance power production, which could have benefits for specific short sprint exercise performance. The ability of a mouth-rinse intervention to rapidly improve maximal exercise performance in the absence of fatigue suggests a central mechanism.
