Roc­tane Ul­tra En­durance En­ergy Gel

$4

GU Roc­tane Ul­tra En­durance En­ergy Gel adds a lit­tle more punch with in­creased sodium, potas­sium and amino acids, as well as 35 mg of caf­feine com­pared to the tra­di­tional GU gel. It’s the same great taste and con­sis­tency but your work­outs and races will feel the dif­fer­ence.

Chomps

$3.50

If you like candy, the Chomps can fool your mouth and of­fer a blend of com­plex and sim­ple car­bo­hy­drates that will re­store your elec­trolytes. They are easy to chew but can oc­ca­sion­ally stick to the roof of your mouth. Chomps are well tol­er­ated dur­ing high in­ten­sity ef­forts. The com­pact pack­ets make Chomps easy to store and ac­cess.

Pow­erGel

With two times the caf­feine ( 50 mg), you’ll cer­tainly feel a boost with this brand new tangy flavour. Since Pow­erGels are among the most pop­u­lar op­tion avail­able on race cour­ses, it makes sense to get your sys­tem used to them. Fast and easy tear- off lids and a thin con­sis­tency make for ef­fi­cient con­sump­tion. The only prob­lem is you’ll want to savour this novel flavour.

Gel Blasts En­ergy Chews

Th­ese went like widl­fire through our of­fices. They are not sim­ply a great boost dur­ing a work­out or race, they are also a great pickup dur­ing that af­ter­noon slump. If you want to keep them around for your work­outs, you’ll need to hide them.

Iron­man Per­form

Like the Pow­erGels, Per­form is avail­able at all wtc Iron­man and 70.3 events so if your key races in­clude any of those, it’s worth try­ing Iron­man Per­form in train­ing. For­mu­lated with a two- to- one glu­cose to fruc­tose blend, Per­form de­liv­ers 20 to 50 per cent more en­ergy to mus­cles than glu­cose alone. Each serv­ing (2 scoops in 500 ml of wa­ter) con­tains 34 g of car­bo­hy­drates, 140 calo­ries and 380 mg of sodium. Per­form has a re­fresh­ing light taste and does not need diluting.
