|Fitness is growing|
On the nutrition side of things I've been reading and researching new products that are low in sugar and easy on the digestive system. I landed on Hammer Nutrition. I know they have been around for a long time and the company name is nothing new to many, but if you have not looked at them in some time, take another look.
What I like
- Gel - great for under 2 hour workouts in the 5 serving flask. No more individual packets that get sticky and generate trash.
- Perpetuem - for workout longer than 2 hours this stuff is awesome. I've tested the one hour bottle process twice now; last Friday on a 2.5 hour hammer ride and Sunday on an 83 mile ride. Result was never feeling a loss of power or hunger. Amazing you can get all you need for nutrition and hydration in one bottle. I also like the fact this allows you to carry less on the ride.
- Endurolytes Fizz - I tend to cramp, dropping one of these in my water bottle is easy and convenient. Jury is out still on cramps. I did try to push the ride on Sunday during the last 15 miles so that I would cramp. Normally this is the time of the ride where it will happen. No cramps.
- Recoverite - Good stuff too, today after the long Sunday ride I feel fresh with no soreness.
