  • Taking Caffeine To Enhance Performance with Gabriel Martins

    Nutrition, Health and Performance Podcast

    Gabriel Martins is a researcher at the University Camilo José Cela in Madrid where his research focuses on studying supplement contamination and the use of ergogenic aids in sports performance. He also works with cycling athletes and competing in both road cycling and mountain bike events.

    On top of that, he hosts the fantastic podcast Fuel the Pedal – which is definitely worth checking out.

    In This Episode We Discuss All Things Caffeine:

    – Prevalence – how caffeine is one of the least used supplements.

    – Dosage – what level you shouldn’t go above and how to control the dose you take. 

    – Efficacy – what sports does caffeine have the most evidence for being effective? Is there a difference between male and females?

    – Individual response – can be ergolytic, not always ergogenic

    – Timing – when do caffeine concentrations peak? Should you take it during exercise?

  • Could A Text Improve Your Workout?

    A recent article in the Strength and Conditioning Journal (1) discussed the use of a simple method to help personal training clients hit their exercise goals – a text message. Could this easy method help people keep up with their gym plan though?

    The author of the article (Justin Kompf) first highlights that people’s ability to adopt and maintain an exercise program is based on two primary things;

    • Do they feel confident enough in their ability to be able to do the exercise?
    • Can they plan, manage, and monitor their exercise?

    A Message A Day?

    Signing up to a personal trainer is one thing but for most people, it is impossible to pay for a PT for more than once or twice a week. How then, can PTs help clients exercise more often? Enter the text message. SMS messaging and Whatsapp have made contacting clients quick and easy. A 2013 systematic-review of 10 studies concluded that text messages showed early promise for promoting physical activity. But, isn’t this something most PTs will be doing already? Maybe. If you are, do more than just do it as a token gesture. Make sure to consider the following 3 factors;

    Content 

    Do you know what sort of messages your clients want? Ask them. Then tailor your content. If the client lacks the confidence to carry out the exercise, motivational messages are the way to go. However, if they lack the organisation skills, these same motivational messages will be ineffective. In this instance, messages that serve as reminders, or provide a “plan B” in case something comes up in your client’s day, will be the better option.

    Automaticity 

    Clients are likely to start ignore texts that feel automated. A 2015 study (2) showed that, if people found out that the messages they received were automated, they stopped reading them.

    Frequency 

    Try and find the sweet spot in how often you are reaching out to them. This is completely personal and changes from person to person. For example, while 50% of participants in one study (2) felt that 3 messages a day were too many, the other half did not feel as negatively about receiving messages this often. In another study of older adults (3), 13 of the 18 participants thought that 5 messages per week are too many and the remaining 5 thought this was fine.

    Other options

    If personal training clients want to exercise outside of their paid sessions, it is the trainers job to guide them, help prescribe sessions that are tailored to their needs, and then give them the confidence and organisation to see these plans through. Some of the factors laid out above should then be considered before hitting the send button on a text message. Equally, the success of these messages should be reviewed. Do they evoke the behaviour change they are setting out to help.
