List of Ergogenic Aid
Select one of these:
Branched-chain amino acids
Find one published peer-reviewed research article on the ergogenic aid you picked.
Do not use Muscle Magazine or a similar magazine because these are for the general public and are not peer-reviewed.
The journal article you select should be a research study that shows how your chosen ergogenic aid affects athletic performance, positively or negatively.
Remember, a research article is not a review article.
A research article reports the results of a research study. You can tell the difference between a research article and a review article because a review article summarizes several research studies.
- list your selected ergogenic aid,
- provide the reference for your selected article,
- describe how your particular ergogenic aid purportedly enhances performance,
- describe the study and the results, and
- evaluate the article. For example, does the study make appropriate conclusions from its data? Was the study designed correctly to address the hypothesis?
Make sure its a published peer-reviewed research article and not a review article
