Mixing / Usage Instructions
Consume 0.5-2.5 servings per hour (see chart above), along with 16-28 ounces (approx 475-830 ml) of plain water per hour from a separate source.
Hammer Gel may be used as the sole source of calories during workouts and races up to two hours, perhaps up to three hours under certain circumstances. When training sessions or races go much longer than that, select either Perpetuem or Sustained Energy as your primary fuel source.
Hammer Gel is perfectly compatible with all other Hammer Nutrition fuels. During ultra distance events, while Hammer Gel cannot be your sole source of calories every single hour, it may be used occasionally to give you a little variety in what you're consuming.
Hammer Flask holds 5-6 servings.
Espresso Hammer Gel contains 50 mg caffeine per serving.
Tropical Hammer Gel contains 25 mg caffeine per serving.
You can use Hammer Gel to flavour Sustained Energy, Hammer Whey smoothies, etc.
Hammer Gel flavours can be mixed for a variety of tastes. Try these combinations:
Banana + Chocolate or Espresso = Banana Split
Orange + Vanilla = Orange Creamsicle
Raspberry + Orange + Banana = Fruit Punch
Raspberry + Espresso = Raspberry Mocha
Vanilla mixed with any other flavour to make it more mild for long-term use
