Numerous studies indicate that the optimal caffeine dosage falls within the range of 3-6mg per kg of body weight. Yes, that might sound like a lot! So before you race make sure you trial Caffeine Bullet to test your tolerance to caffeine.
Always follow to the instructions on the package, and remember, exceeding 400mg of caffeine in a day is not advisable. It’s a powerful drug, so use it sensibly!
During a Race and Endurance Events
Caffeine's effects peak in your bloodstream somewhere between 45-60 minutes after ingestion. Since the effectiveness of each dose diminishes over time, the timing of taking Caffeine Bullets can vary for different races.
If you're gearing up for a race within the first 45 minutes, consider taking 1-2 bullets about 30 minutes prior to the start, and if needed, another 1 during the race.
In the 45-90 minute range, again, take 1-2 bullets 30 minutes before the race, and during the race, consider 1-2 more as you begin to feel fatigue.
Beyond 90 minutes, it's generally recommended not to take any bullets before the race itself. Instead, distribute your 3-4 bullets strategically throughout your race at points where you start to feel fatigue.
0 before race. 1-2 bullets at mile 16-18 as you start to tire. 1-2 bullets at 20-22 miles to ensure a strong finish
Now, in the context of a marathon, avoid taking bullets before the race, but at around mile 16-18 when you start to tire, consider 1-2 bullets. Then, for that strong finish, think about taking another 1-2 bullets at miles 20-22.
Caffeine During Team Sports
When it comes to Team Sports, which include sports like football, rugby, netball, and basketball, try taking Caffeine Bullets about 15 minutes before kick-off, and then again about 5 minutes before halftime.
Caffeine During Combat Sports
For Combat Sports, encompassing a variety of disciplines from Boxing to Mixed Martial Arts, aim to take Caffeine Bullets approximately 5 minutes before your match is scheduled to begin.
Caffeine During Gym Sessions
For shorter, high-intensity sessions lasting under 45 minutes, take your Caffeine Bullets about 15 minutes before. This timing ensures your caffeine levels peak right at the session's start, giving you the maximum boost. In longer sessions, time your intake to give you that extra kick when fatigue sets in.
If using caffeine as a motivational boost make sure not to start too fast in longer sessions due to the caffeine and adrenaline rush. We don't want to get sued just because you ran through a brick wall.
