The Federal University of Alagoas (Ufal) reveals the benefits that the use of caffeine is able to provide in athletes. It was proven that extra doses of this element are able to improve the performance of practicing tae-kwon-do and cycling, but the lack of knowledge about the benefits of caffeine combined with carbohydrates in intermittent sports such as judo, football and basketball reinforce the need for research in this area.

To evaluate the efficiency of these elements in the recovery of players, Victor Amorim, a graduate student in applied nutrition tests on 15 players soccer team male Ufal.

According to Victor, the sport is classified as intermittent because it is characterized by the efforts of conducting high intensity and short duration (sprints), interspersed with periods of lower intensity, with active recovery, or complete pauses (passive recovery). During the preseason, players spend daily for two practice sessions in the morning and afternoon, with a space of three to six hours of rest. Our idea is to evaluate the effects of supplementation in both physical, as in the technical aspects of the performance of soccer players, explains.

All that training intensity eventually generate a physical wear on the players, causing their yields fall. Poor diet and overtraining become a real challenge to physicists and nutritionists prepared to recover from their teams. So in between the workouts, nutritional strategies to implement many who believe promote a faster recovery for athletes, among them are combined ingestion of carbohydrate and caffeine.

"The work provides something new, because there are no studies in the literature which make the comparison of the effects of carbohydrate and caffeine supplementation"

Athletes go through countermovement vertical jump tests, to assess the potential production of explosive strength of the lower limbs of the players agility test in the evaluation of valence agility of players; tests the athlete's performance and precision in the execution of short passes below five feet and repeated sprint test, in identifying the athlete's ability to recover quickly after the execution of high intensidade.todos efforts are undergoing combined supplementation of carbohydrates and caffeine.

Another hypothesis is that caffeine alone increase the performance in practice of late. She was raised after studies Marcos Silva, a member of the Research Group on Sport Sciences, found that athletes were cycling performance boost from the caffeine intake, even after the individual has completed a protocol to reduce muscle glycogen stores .

The work provides something new, because there are no studies in the literature which make the comparison of the effects of carbohydrate and caffeine supplementation, both alone, as combined in specific performance of football players, after an initial period of training, says researcher. The final results come out in August and September this year.
