234.120 Introduction to Sport and Exercise Science: Assignment 1 Name: Bernard van der Spuy Student ID #: 14094512 1. Proposed title of your study: Does ingestion of caffeine have an effect on power output of an athlete taking part in a stimulated cycling sprint? ( on bike machine ) 2. Identify the reason for this study: In cycling the athletes need to be constantly aware of their power output I want to find out if the ingestion of caffeine prior to this exercise can affect this power output. 3. Identify information that you will need from a literature review that will help you come up with the research hypothesis and methods: In the literature reviews I will need to find out whether or not caffeine does have an affect on any forms of anaerobic exercises. I will need to find out what the major contributing factor is for the amount of power output a cyclist can achieve and also whether or not there have been previous studies to see if caffeine can affect the power output of an athlete. 4. Six journal articles (Write journal article first [in APA style referencing]). Journal reference 1: Aedma.M.,Timpmann.S. & Vahur.Í. (2013) Effect of Caffeine on Upper- Body Anaerobic Performance in Wrestlers in Simulated Competition-Day Conditions. International Journal of Sport Nutrition & Exercise Metabolism , 23(6), 601 What did this journal article helped you for your study? This journal article helped me for my study as they are also looking at the effects of ingestion of caffeine on power output through “Peak Power” and “Mean Power”, just in a different context, which in this case is in wrestling. From this study I learned that the caffeine ingestion had a “detrimental effect on the upper body intermittent sprint performance in trained wrestlers” so therefore from this study we can see that it is not supporting my research hypothesis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
