Coffee, Muffins and Maximal Performance: A Personal Journey through Sports Science Research

Lars McNaughton joined Edge Hill University’s Department of Sport and Physical Activity in 2011. His areas of research include the ways in which naturally occurring substances can affect and influence sporting performance and recovery.

He is currently working with colleagues from UK universities on two projects; one is looking at the body’s production of heat shock proteins and how these can influence athletes’ acclimatisation process when competing in countries with different climates.

The other is studying the impact of sodium bicarbonate on performance and recovery.

Lars has published more than 200 papers in the UK and abroad, presented at numerous international conferences, and is a Fellow of the British, Australian and American Associations for Sport and Exercise Science.
