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.
