Abstract

Purpose
Nicotine is a psychostimulant that is reported to be commonly supplemented by athletes. The purpose of the current study was to determine the effects of a rapidly absorbed form of nicotine on repeated bouts of anaerobic exercise, perception of exertion and a range of cardiovascular variables while monitoring side effect profiles.

Methods
Sixteen healthy, nicotine naïve male athletes (24.1 ± 5.3 years, 179.0 ± 8.8 cm, 81.7 ± 13.5 kg, BMI 25.5 ± 3.0, Body fat% 13.2 ± 5.1%) completed two repeated 30 s Wingate tests with 3 min rest between bouts following consumption of either a 5-mg oral-dispersible nicotine strip (NIC) or a flavour-matched placebo (PLA) in a randomised, double-blind, cross-over design. Before the Wingate test, resting heart rate and blood pressure were also measured prior to and following PLA and NIC ingestion.

Results
Peak and average power output were significantly greater following NIC administration compared to PLA (P < 0.01). Similarly, significant increases were also seen in heart rate and blood pressure following NIC administration compared to PLA (P < 0.01). No significant effect on pre-exercise side effect score, reaction time, rate of perceived exertion or post exercise blood lactate levels were observed (P > 0.05).

Conclusions
It was concluded that oral-dispersible nicotine strips increase repeated anaerobic performance, possibly through strong sympathetic stimulation, as evident by significant elevation of cardiovascular parameters.

"strong sympathetic stimulation, as evident by significant elevation of cardiovascular parameters."

it's the training pill, at last !

ha. so the new race-morning protocol is caffeine and nicotine pills/strips, replacing the old breakfast of coffee and a cigarette.. plus ça change..

Ha! I have a small unsused box of 4mg Nicotine gum sitting in a drawer. I bought it many months ago when I read a different study with similar results. I never got around to experimenting with it, but not that I'm in the midst of some VO2 max interval sets where I have a pretty good sense of my limits, this might be a worthy experiment.

"increase repeated anaerobic performance"

Cough, Cough. There is a slight problem here. The Wingate test and triathlon do not rely upon the same main energy source for the event. Furthermore, N=16 and the age/sex of the subjects are problematic for many of us. Try not to expand the results/summary beyond what the study looked at.

You should buy stock in companies that make or sell vape pens.

Much higher dose and stronger effect.

Highly popular with HS kids nowadays as it is easily concealed and doesn't have the stigma.

Scary stuff, as it's still addictive, you can overdose and refill them with other stronger drugs....

Wild West and Gold Rush.

You can thank me later.

Indeed you are correct. However, the OP's current study only jogged my memory of a different one that I read and the application was for longer time trialing if I recall correctly. If I dig it back up I'll provide a link.
