on September 05, 2018

Synopsis: 

  • Study assessed whether NZBC could help athletes maintain the performance of repeated maximal sprints in field sports, especially in latter stages of game
  • Eight of 13 participants had higher running times to exhaustion after consuming CurraNZ
  • Those participants who increased time to exhaustion did so by on average 15%
  • NZBC intake allowed for better maintenance of the fastest sprint time during LIST
  • Participants tolerated higher heart rate values and ran for longer at higher intensity
  • Particpants showed reduced slowing of the fastest sprints at exhaustive stages
