Creatine monohydrate (‘creatine’) and caffeine are commonly used ergogenic aids which have both been shown to enhance high-intensity exercise performance. The combined supplementation of caffeine with creatine for 6-days, however, has previously been shown to interfere with the enhanced exercise performance usually seen in isolation. This study showed that no interference is achieved when a single dose of caffeine follows a 6-day creatine supplementation regime demonstrating that future authors should consider the contrasting caffeine / creatine interference in their experimental designs. Hughes assisted with the design of the study, the data collection and the editing of the manuscript.

Hewlett, Paul; Smith, Alyson (John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2006-03-01)Rationale The effects of caffeine on mood and performance are well established. One explanation of these effects is that caffeine removes negative effects induced by prior caffeine withdrawal. This was tested here by ...
Effects of Reapeated Doses of Caffeine on Performance and Alertness: New Data and Secondary Analyses Hewlett, Paul; Smith, Andrew (Wiley, 2007)Rationale The effects of caffeine on mood and performance are well established. Some authors suggest that caffeine merely reverses effects of caffeine withdrawal rather than having direct behavioural effects. It has also ...
