Title: The Effects of Caffeine on a Time-Trial Cycling Performance
Author: Tucker, Chris
Abstract: Caffeine is one of the most widely consumed drugs in the world. Its mechanism of action has given it credibility as an ergogenic aid. It has been shown to stimulate the mobilization and oxidation of free fatty acids (FFA), thus sparing muscle glycogen. Caffeine is also well documented as a central nervous stimulant and its direct effect on the central nervous system is found in its role as an adenosine antagonist. It is thought to inhibit adenosine from blocking neuronal transmission thus increasing pain tolerance and reducing fatigue.
