PainSci notes on Hogervorst 2008:
Caffeine really will “significantly improve” not only endurance performance, but “complex cognitive ability during and after exercise.” The researchers studied 24 well-trained cyclists, giving them either 100mg of caffeine or a placebo and then testing their endurance and their mental function during and after workouts. The signal was loud and clear: caffeine consumption boosted their performance.
Sign me up! I’ve already pretty much embraced caffeine as one of those rare pleasures in life that has minimal downsides — this is just gravy.
