Caffeine exhibited significant improvement in swimming endurance performance and pulling strength, while d-amphetamine showed improvement in swimming performance only, and insignificantly reduced the pulling strength in rats. Neither of the two drugs suppressed blood lactic acid (BLA) levels, or replenished skeletal-muscle glycogen (SMG) stores. In this study there was no correlation between the "anti-fatigue" action and BLA rise antagonism, which otherwise is an important mechanism involved in the increase of endurance performance. The findings have been discussed in view of available literature.
