Benefits of caffeine for short distance events
Caffeine is a well-known ergogenic aid and is used widely in the world of sports nutrition due to it’s safety and efficacy in enhancing exercise performance, including short-distance events.
There are various ways in which caffeine may improve exercise performance in short-distance events. The main effect is likely to be achieved via impact on the Central Nervous System (CNS). This impact may reduce the perception of effort, making exercise seem ‘easier’.
