- Effect of a divided caffeine dose on endurance cycling performance, postexercise urinary caffeine concentration, and plasma paraxanthineKylie J Conway
School of Exercise and Sport Science, University of Sydney, Lidcombe 1825, New South Wales, Australia
J Appl Physiol 94:1557-62. 2003..Plasma paraxanthine increased in a dose-dependent fashion and did not peak during exercise. In conclusion, dividing a caffeine dose provides no ergogenic effect over a bolus dose but reduces postexercise urinary concentration...
