Caffeine - a drug or energy booster?

January 30, 2014

Caffeine - a drug or energy booster?
Do you drag yourself to the kitchen every morning to slurp your first heavenly cup of coffee before contemplating a sideways glance at any other human being?  Don't know why you need a caffeine hit to get up and running?  Has coffee become your legal drug to reach your performance goals. This Griffith University Brisbane experimental project could be for you.

"Possible synergistic effects of caffeine and exercise on acute energy balance" 

The aims of this project are to examine how exercise and caffeine ingestion may work together to influence energy balance over an acute period. This will be determined through metabolism measures in a lab setting followed by 24 h with an arm sensor. 

Type of volunteers needed
Healthy, active (more than 3 times per week for greater than 45 min) men and women 18​ to ​45​,​ in or willing to travel to the Gold Coast area. 

What would I be asked to do? How much time would it take?
The study will require one familiarisation/screening visit and 3 experimental trials. The first visit will include questionnaires about healthy and fitness and an exercise test. The remaining three visits are experimental trials. The lab visits will total about 16 hours. 

What’s in it for me?
A free lunch will be provided after each experimental trial. Compensation for time, travel expenses, and parking are available. 

How can I volunteer or find out more?
