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.
