The BET group completed the test 8.9% faster and with 69% fewer errors than before, contrasting with the control group's improvements of 4.3% in speed and 21% in error reduction over four weeks of training.
Repeated Sprint Ability improved by +10% in the BET group, compared to a +3% improvement in the control group, highlighting BET's effectiveness in enhancing sprint performance.
Brain Endurance Training (BET) has been proven to significantly enhance physical performance in ways that are truly astonishing.
Today, we turn our focus to a compelling piece of research that delves into the effects of ketone monoester supplementation combined with carbohydrates on the physical and cognitive performance of trained female athletes.
One of the primary reasons researchers favor cyclists is the level of control they offer. In the scientific realm, control is akin to hitting the jackpot.
Recent research pinpoints a 'minimum effective dose' for cognitive training: 20 minutes per session, three times a week, with an option to increase up to 60 minutes per session, four to five times a week.
BET is rigorous, demanding, and not for the faint of heart. However, its effectiveness is undeniable, backed by peer-reviewed research from prestigious universities and even the US Army.
When initiating the process of cognitive task analysis, it's crucial to remember that the landscape is vast and varied. Traditional metrics like reaction time and accuracy, while foundational, only scratch the surface of what's measurable and meaningful.
