University of Montana Health and Human Performance Department graduate student Jose Pena joins the podcast to discuss over-the-counter, alleged performance-enhancing products. Jose is a Chilean who came to the U. S. to play collegiate soccer, and has been involved with UM’s wildland firefighter research. While performing numerous surveys and interviews with WLFF, Jose heard of the widespread use of dietary supplements similar to that in athletics. Jose’s bag contains various items, all of which claim in some way to make users bigger,
stronger, faster, or more alert. UM sport nutrition professor Chuck Dumke provides research based analysis on what role, if any, they play in helping WLFFs meet the demands of their job.
