According to the research published in the journal Ergonomics, "To examine the effects of caffeine during exercise in fire protective ensemble (FPE), 10 healthy males completed three 10-minute bouts of treadmill exercise on two separate days. Some 60 minutes prior to exercise, either 6mg/kg of caffeine (CAFF) or dextrose placebo (PLA) capsules were ingested (randomly assigned, double blind)."
