of 300mg per kg of body weight taken one hour before testing. To put that in easier terms, a 150 pound cyclist would need to take 20 grams before a workout or race. While baking soda appears to boost Nike Air Max Denim
For cyclists, this adds further proof to the idea that baking soda can delay fatigue. The most recent cycling study, published in 2004, concluded that baking soda reduced Air Max 90 Hyperfuse
In this case, nine male elite swimmers were used and their performance and blood pH was measured for three 200 meter freestyle time trials spread out over three weeks. The results showed a consistent 1.5 seconds advantage to swimmers who ingested baking soda. While this edge may Air Max 90 Black Leather seem small, the difference between the silver medal and fifth place at this Olympics' 200 meter men's freestyle was only 1.1 seconds. Blood tests from before ingestion, before the trial, and also showed an increase in pH (less acidity), compared to placebo and control groups.

performance, the catch is that it's only proven for sprinting, not all day efforts. The best bet for riders curious to test this possible leg saver is to try hard and short exertions like sprint training. Even if you don't feel any increased speed, you'll at least get a killer workout in.
The use of baking soda for sports performance has been studied for years with mixed results, but the researchers took issue with the fact that previous studies tested repeated performances, not single bout efforts that replicate most competitive efforts.
