Hammer Sports Nutrition

Go harder for longer with Hammer Gel because it provides you with an easily digested source of carbohydrates with no added simple sugars. This allows for a greater volume of calories to be easily digested, providing you with more fuel for energy production.

Hammer Gels are available in convenient sachet packs or cost effective bulk jugs and comes in 9 refreshing flavours.

Hammer Gel is primarily used during training sessions and races. However, it may be used as a pre-workout meal or for recovery, providing an excellent source of easily digested carbohydrates.

Usage Info

Hammer Gel may be used straight, as a gel, in either single-serving pouches or in the five-serving Hammer Flask, or it may be mixed with water in a bottle to make a sports drink.

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.

Usage Information

The Obvious:

Fill the Hammer Flask, which will give you about 5-6 servings equaling 500-600 calories. Take the flask and a water bottle or two out and consume 1-2 servings per hour while you exercise.

Mixed with Water:

Hammer Gel mixes very easily right in your water bottle and can replace any powdered energy drink mix. Mix 1-3 servings in a 20-24 ounce water bottle and consume as needed while you exercise.

Post Workout Recovery:

It is a very wise idea to supplement with 50-100 grams of carbohydrates and 15-20+ grams of protein within 30-60 minutes of finishing a workout or event. Instead of using an over priced, sugar and artificial ingredient filled recovery drink mix, you can make your own.

Use 2-3 servings of Hammer Gel with 1 scoop of Hammer Pro Whey or 2/3 of a scoop of Hammer Pro Soy. This will give you 48 to 92 grams of carbs and 18.5 to 21 grams of protein in an economical and great tasting post workout beverage.

Mix and Match Flavours:

Mixing Hammer Gel flavours is fun and can give you an almost limitless variety of custom flavours. Some of the more popular combinations are:

  • Banana + Chocolate or Espresso = Banana Split
  • Orange + Vanilla = Orange Creamsicle
  • Raspberry + Orange + Banana = Fruit Punch
  • Raspberry + Espresso = Raspberry Mocha

OR

Plain mixed with any other flavour to make it more mild for long term use.
