PROJECT DETAILS

Competitive athletes of various standards are continually striving to enhance exercise performance outcomes. A common approach that is utilised to enhance exercise performance and post-exercise recovery is the consumption of dietary supplements. Many studies have assessed the efficacy of a single dietary supplement to enhance exercise performance in different exercise settings. However, in practice, many athletes use dietary supplement blends comprising different macronutrient and micronutrient combinations. Therefore, further research is required to assess the effects of different dietary supplement blends on performance outcomes in a variety of exercise settings.

The predominant focus of this PhD programme over the first two years is to conduct a series of systematic reviews and meta-analyses to evaluate the efficacy of different dietary supplement blends to improve exercise performance and/or recovery outcomes in a variety of exercise settings. A human clinical trial is likely to be conducted in the final year of the PhD programme to evaluate the efficacy of dietary supplement blends to improve aspects of exercise performance and/or post-exercise recovery.
