Episode 17 - Does Caffeine Improve Physical Performance?

Episode 17 - Does Caffeine Improve Physical Performance?

In 1984 the International Olympic Committee added caffeine to its controlled substance list, BUT in 2004 both the IOC and the World Anti-Doping Agency removed caffeine from being banned.

Since then, professional and Olympics athletes are allowed to use caffeine when competing,  So can caffeine really be helping you run longer or lift more in the gym?

This week Brendan, Aaron and Chris take a look at caffeine's impact on physical performance, when the best time to take caffeine before going for your daily jog is - and the most effective way to take it (spoiler: it isn't a flat white on the fun run start line).

Also in this episode, Chris has a business idea for brand new chewing gum, David Rotas is back on the grid, and Aaron answers more questions from the people about his Sultana Bran habit.
