PEAK ATP® increased participants’ post-exercise ATP levels, muscle excitability, and sprint performance following a repeated sprint bout.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized design study, 42 healthy, trained men were given either 400 mg of PEAK ATP® or a placebo for 2 weeks. A repeated sprint exercise test was performed before and after the supplementation period. During the sprint bout, muscle activation and excitability, and power were measured. Oral PEAK ATP® supplementation prevented exercise-induced declines in ATP and its metabolites. PEAK ATP® supplementation also enhanced peak power and muscular excitability. This study suggests PEAK ATP® supplementation would be beneficial for sports requiring repeated high-intensity sprinting bouts.
