The Effect of Caffeine on Aerobic Performance

User Description:
Caffeine has been observed to possess a similar molecular structure to naturally occurring ‘adenosine’ molecules found in our bodies which allow cellular respiration and energy production (Cao, et.al, 2015). Thus; the ability of caffeine to act as an adenosine antagonist and stimulate the central nervous system has lead to numerous scientific studies being conducted to research its effect upon cognitive activity, muscular endurance, blood pressure, respiration and pulse rates (Spriet, 2014; Ryu et al. 2001) The aim of this study was to distinguish whether or not there exists a link between the consumption of caffeine and a change in respiration and pulse rates prior to and following an aerobic incremental step up test

Sample Text:
The ability of Caffeine to increase fatty acid metabolism (Ryu et al. 2001), prolong muscular endurance, increase reaction time (Nishijima et al., 2002) and improve psychomotor performance (Kruk et al.,2001) is widely recognised throughout the sporting community and is therefore frequently used as an ergogenic aid by athletes wishing to improve their aerobic performance. Caffeine has been observed to possess a similar molecular structure to naturally occurring ‘adenosine’ molecules found in our bodies which allow cellular respiration and energy production (Cao, et.al, 2015). Thus; the ability of caffeine to act as an adenosine antagonist and stimulate the central nervous system has lead to numerous scientific...

BIOL1003 Effect of Caffeine on Aerobic Performance Research Report Task

This student studied:
University of Sydney - BIOL1008 - Human Biology

received a distinction Regular caffeine consumption is widespread across individuals due to the ergogenic aid it is known to provide. Many researches have attributed such effects to be predominantly caused by caffeine’s role as the central nervous system stimulant, inducing antagonistic effects on the adenosine receptors (Davis et al. 2003). Such may promote changes to pulse rate as the blockade of adenosine receptors will consequently limit the adenosine-induced vasodilation in some circulation regions affecting the cardiovascular system (Smits et al. 1990). Also, caffeine as a respiratory medullary complex stimulant may trigger changes to
