What is the objective of the study (as reported by the authors)? The aim of this study was to examine the effect of acute caffeine ingestion on resistance exercise to failure post-exercise muscle pain and perceived exertion in the bench press, deadlift, prone row and back squat. It was hypothesized that, compared to placebo, caffeine will significantly improve repetitions to failure whilst reducing ratings of perceived exertion and muscle pain.

Provide a general description of the methods as reported by the authors. Information should be extracted based on relevance to the SR (i.e., caffeine related methods) Subjects: All participants were asked to refrain from vigorous exercise and maintain normal dietary patterns in the 48 hours prior to testing and were asked not to consume caffeine after 6:00 pm the night before testing to control for the effects of caffeine already consumed (Marlat & Rosenhow, 1980). Procedure: Each participant attended the human performance laboratory on three occasions. All testing took place between 9.00 am and 12.00 pm with each condition taking place at the same time for each participant to avoid circadian variation. Conditions, separated by 48-72 hours, were randomized and consisted of a caffeine condition where 5 mg/kg of caffeine (Bayer, UK) diluted into 250 ml of artificially sweetened water and a placebo condition where 250 ml of artificially sweetened water were consumed. Solutions were consumed 60 minutes before each exercise trial as plasma caffeine concentration is maximal 1 hour after ingestion of caffeine (Graham, 2001). Solutions were presented to participants in an opaque sports bottle to prevent the researchers administering the solutions or the participants from actually seeing the solutions themselves.
