Int J Sports Med 28:994-8. 2007..3 degrees C) during ice bath immersion but a similar increase also occurred in the control condition. Therefore, cold water immersion caused a significant decrease in sprint cycling performance with one-hour recovery between tests...
- Effects of dietary leucine supplementation on exercise performanceMelissa J Crowe
Institute of Sport and Exercise Science, James Cook University, Townsville, Qld 4811, Australia
Eur J Appl Physiol 97:664-72. 2006..Six weeks' dietary leucine supplementation significantly improved endurance performance and upper body power in outrigger canoeists without significant change in the plasma ratio of tryptophan to BCAA...
- Physiological and cognitive responses to caffeine during repeated, high-intensity exerciseMelissa J Crowe
Institute of Sport and Exercise Science, James Cook University, Townsville, Queensland 4811, Australia
Int J Sport Nutr Exerc Metab 16:528-44. 2006..Caffeine had no significant effect on peak power, work output, RPE, or peak heart rate. In conclusion, caffeine had no ergogenic effect on repeated, maximal cycling bouts and may be detrimental to anaerobic performance...
