I have had lots of questions about diet and nutrition this year. There are a plethora of products all claiming to be the best and all claiming to perform better than the next. The human body is complex and each person absorbs what they need from their food in a different way and at a different rate. So these questions, though everyone wants a simple answer, are actually very complicated and are individualized dependent totally on the athlete and their needs.
We carry only one brand of nutrition, and yes we have our reasons. In our opinion replacing only what you use is a bad approach to fueling the human body. Each of us is different remember, our needs are as individual as our personalities. The “trick” is to find a fuel that supplies what you need, even if you are not entirely sure what you need. This thought process results in a need for a blanket fuel source that your body can pick and choose what it is deficient in, depending on the athletic condition and environment. In laymen’s terms, choose a fuel that supplies that safety blanket of nutrition.
Hammer nutrition is our fuel of choice, they have the largest “blanket” of products that can help you perform at your best. Their products are sugar free and slow burning resulting in no drops in energy or performance. They have pre ride, during, and post ride products tailored specifically for the athlete. But don’t just take it from us. Their products are reasonably priced and in single dose formats, so give them a try the next time you drop into the shop.
