The Effects of Caffeine on Swimming Performance in Correlation with Respiratory Function

Caitlin Reijman, Biology Major Abstract:Caffeine is often used by athletes to enhance performance, however the magnitude of its effects varies (Rauh, Burkert, Siepmann, & Mueck-Weymann 2006). Little has been done to correlate the effects of caffeine on respiratory function with its effects on performance (Chapman & Mickleborough  2009). The effects of caffeine on swimmers’ respiratory function may play an important part in performance enhancement. I hypothesized that caffeine improves swimming performance and that its effects can be explained by the effects of caffeine on both metabolism and ventilation.
