Work Out Harder, Easier

Although the effect of caffeine on endurance performance is well documented, a recent study by researchers from South Africa investigated the possible mechanisms why. The researchers studied the effect of caffeine in two triathlons held two weeks apart. The study was conducted with male and female triathletes who trained an average of 12.8 hours per week. The triathletes consumed caffeine 60 minutes before their triathlon and time to completion data was measured.
