Caffeine and carbohydrate combination improves sports performance as well as endurance
There are plenty of research that shows that caffeine and carbohydrate improve endurance. But the question remains – does caffeine and carbohydrate combo actually pose improve skill and performance? The answer is yes according to research by a performance nutritionist at Sheffield Hallam University. Along with improvements in endurance caused by ingesting carbohydrate, the athletes’ skill level improved after taking caffeine and carbohydrate together.
The researchers carried out three different soccer-specific match simulations of 90 minutes each, each including two 45-minute sessions. The skill tested included agility, dribbling, heading and kicking accuracy. The test was designed to mimic a football game where the participants had to carry out multiple repeated sprints, dribble the ball around cones and shoot accurately.
The researchers found that the combination of carbohydrate and caffeine allowed players to sustain higher work intensity for the sprints, as well as improving shooting accuracy and dribbling during simulated soccer activity.
These findings suggest that, for athletes competing in team sports where endurance and skill are important factors, ingesting a combination of carbohydrate and caffeine, as opposed to just a carbohydrate drink, may significantly enhance performance. The findings suggest that players should choose a carbohydrate caffeine combination product over a carbohydrate drink before kick-off and at half-time and that caffeine combined with carbohydrate will help athletes perform better on the field.
