Science fair project - Caffeine’s effect on HR

Lets help this kid learn about science; all you have to do is drink a couple cokes while wearing a HR monitor. You can even win a prize.

It will be interesting to see the results as well.

Those were actually very good results from a basic science fair project. Kudos to that kid. I couldn't conduct those type of experiments when I was in school.

Very nice.

Anyone with a study of cyclists and caffeine? It's an ok bronchodilator.

Here's a link that discusses the ergogenic benefit of caffeine. Endurance and muscle conraction improve with 250-500 mg. At higher levels it is illegal in some venues. Just don't do the grande mocha with ephedrine. http://www.aafp.org/afp/20010301/913.html
