From: Effects of acute carbohydrate ingestion on anaerobic exercise performance

   Total reps 15 g/h 30 g/h 60 g/h
Total Repetitions CON 52.3 ± 14.2 10.1 %; 0.8 to 9.8 (0.42) 96.7 %, very likely (9) p = 0.06 10.1 %; -1.2 to 11.8 (0.39) 91.2 %, likely (19) p = 0.17 -0.3 %; -3.5 to 3.2 (0.01) 44.1 %, possibly (123526) p = 0.94
15 g/h 57.6 ± 10.5   No differences n/a p = 1.00 -9.4 %; -8.5 to -2.3 (0.47) -99.2 %, very likely (2) p = 0.01
30 g/h 57.6 ± 13.2    -9.4 %; -13.3 to 2.41 (0.42) -88.2 %, likely (21) p = 0.23
60 g/h 52.1 ± 12.6    
  1. Data indicate summation of total repetitions for all RT exercises with ingestion of 15, 30, and 60 g/h of 2:1 glucose: fructose (mean total repetitions ± SD) and %improvement in total repetitions [1st line: %improvement, 90 % confidence interval limits, and Cohen’s effect size (ES; in parentheses); 2nd line: chances (% and qualitative) of meaningful improvement (>0.5 % CV) and sample size needed for a magnitude-based inference about the practical significance of the observed changes in performance for a power of 80 % (in parentheses); 3rd line: exact P value from pairwise t-tests]
