Subjects also tried each of these threepatterns.
|The timebetween ingesting carbohydrates and workout||2hours|
|What this experimentconfirmed||What effect do differences in carbohydrate intakehave on workout performance?|
|After drinkingwater||After taking a placebo drink||After drinking acarbohydrate drink|
|Average number ofsquats||38 times||43 times||44times|
|Average number of bench presses||37times||38 times||39times|
- Comparing the placebo drinkwith the carbohydrate drink, there was no significant difference inthe number of squats and bench presses for either.
- Comparingthe subjective satisfaction after drinking a placebo drink with afterdrinking a carbohydrate drink, there was no significant difference.(p=0.18)
