HAMMER GEL

Product Description

Hammer Gel is a gel that provides an easily digested source of carbohydrates. Go harder for longer.

Hammer Gel is available in sachet packs . As with all Hammer Nutrition fuels, there are no added simple sugars in Hammer Gel, which allows for a greater volume of calories to be easily digested, providing more fuel for energy production.

Main benefits of consuming product:

As with all Hammer Nutrition fuels, there are no added simple sugars in Hammer Gel, which allows for a greater volume of calories to be easily digested, providing more fuel for energy production. Convenience is also a primary benefit of Hammer Gel; gels in general are convenient as they provide a concentrated source of calories.

When should it be consumed?

If Hammer Gel is used as a pre-workout/race meal it should be consumed at least three hours prior to the workout/race. If this is not logistically feasible it should be consumed as close to the start of the workout/race as possible, approximately no later than 5-10 minutes prior.

Either of these pre-exercise fueling techniques will ensure efficient utilization of muscle glycogen stores. Hammer Gel will satisfy all energy requirements for events up to two hours.

In training sessions/events longer than that Hammer Gel may be used to supplement protein-based fuels such as Perpetuem. During triathlons in the one- to two-hour range (perhaps even up towards 2.5 hours) Hammer Gel may be used as the sole energy source.

During the run portion of half or full iron-distance triathlons, where carrying and consuming fuel can be a real nuisance, Hammer Gel’s superb complex carbohydrate formula and its relative ease of carrying and consumption make it the fuel of choice.

How much should a triathlete take:

Suggested use based on body weight: *

  • Up to 54 kg: 2 servings/hour
  • 54 – 70 kg: 2.5 servings/hour
  • 70 – 86 kg: 3 servings/hour
  • 86+ kg: 3 to 3.5 servings/hour

* These are estimated doses. Each athlete should determine in training, under a variety of conditions, their personal optimum.
