One Dose of ATP May Help Improve Exercise Performance

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the source of energy for use and storage at the cellular level. ATP is commonly referred to as the energy currency of the cell as it provides readily releasable energy. A recent study has found that a one-time supplementation of 400 mg of ATP may help improve exercise performance.

20 recreationally-trained men participated in the study – which was a randomized, placebo-controlled crossover design, separated by a 1 week wash out between treatments. The participants were given 100 mg, 200 mg, or 400 mg of ATP, or a placebo, 30 minutes before performing resistance training. Participants performed 4 sets of resistance training exercises until movement failure. The researchers measured exercise performance at baseline and after supplementation.

One-time supplementation with 400 mg of ATP resulted in improved exercise performance - with a 13% increase in first set repetitions, a 7% increase in total repetitions and a 6% increase in total weight lifted, compared to the placebo group. No significant effect was seen for the 100 and 200 mg doses.

The study was conducted by researchers from the Federal University of Piaui. It is awaiting publication.
