With the development of world competitive sports, football, as an important part of international sports, has attracted the attention of many people. However, as a high-load sport, how to solve the problem of energy consumption in sports has become a top priority. The purpose of this article is to observe the effects of fitness drinks on the performance of football players based on mice experiments. This article introduces the characteristics of football and analyzes the role of sports drinks in sports metabolism. Then it researched the replenishment methods and timing of sports drinks, and then introduced the human physiological indicators. In the experimental part, eight healthy adult mice were used as experimental research objects to test the calm blood lactic acid, creatine kinase, heart rate and recovery value after exercise of each mouse under different sports drink supplements, and the recovery effect was tested. The experimental results prove that, although the test results are quite different from each other, on the whole, fitness drinks can promote the physiological indicators of football players to a certain extent. In this article, the effect of reducing creatine kinase was tested. The method of replenishing a sports drink every 20 minutes was the most effective. The value of creatine kinase was 18.
