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.

Hammermer

Gel is a gel that provides an easily digested source of carbohydrates.

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.
 
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 races in the 1-2 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 an athlete take. Below are estimates and each athlete should determine in training, under a variety of conditions, their personal optimum. 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
   
Usage Information
In a flask: Fill a small 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 Flavors: Mixing Hammer Gel flavors is fun and can give you an almost limitless variety of custom flavors. 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 flavor to make it more mild for long term use

    Gel caffeine gel

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Jan 2014

    I was looking for a gel with a decent caffeine hit and these have that. Easy digestion as well but taste is a little full on.

    Easy fuel!

    Posted by Stef on 24th Nov 2013

    Sachets are easy to open and mix well when diluted with water. Nice texture and not overly sweet. Easy to digest. Prevents cramps.
    Only four stars because of the flavour. It should be called pineapple, not tropical!

    Gels help marathon!

    Posted by Chris Adey on 15th Sep 2013

    have just completed my first marathon at the good age of 63. I decided that i would use 4 gels in the second half of the run, at 25,30,35 and 39kms. I finished really well despite missing 5 crucial weeks of training, and I'm sure this was because of the benefits of the gels. I use them in my longer training runs, and also in the Challenge Ride which is part of the Tour Down Under here in Adelaide.
