Objective: The purpose of the present research work was to determine the appropriate timing of ingestion of energy drink prior to exercise to improve VO2 max. Methodology: A total of 15 male healthy individual, whose mean age and height were 20.47 years (±2.00) and 130.83 cm (±17.26) respectively, participated in this study and were placed in three different groups, in Group A they performed Bruce treadmill test without taking any supplement, in Group B they consumed energy drink 20 minutes before performing test and in Group C they consumed same energy drink immediately before performing the test. Results and Analysis: One way ANOVA were applied to analyze the data between all groups and statistical significant differences were found in VO2 max between Group A, Group B and Group C. Conclusion: The finding of this study concluded that ingestion of energy drink before exercise helps in enhancing the VO2 max, but its timing of ingestion does not affect as much since both group B and group C showed relatively similar findings.
