Sustained Energy by Hammer Nutrition: Benefits: Enjoy sustained energy hour after hour Easy to digest, no stomach or GI issues Reduce muscle fatigue and recovery time Improve fat burning Buffer lactic acid Protein enhanced complex carbohydrate formula Unflavored, neutral tasting One of the original long distance fuels, Sustained Energy has attained a legendary status in the world of endurance sports since it’s introduction in 1992. Tested and proven in virtually every endurance event on the planet, Sustained Energy’s unique 7:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio, and it's neutral flavor, is still the first choice of thousands of athletes. After about two hours of exercise you need to have some protein in your fuel or you will start to “cannibalize” or break down precious muscle tissue. So when your exercise goes beyond the range of Hammer Gel or HEED alone, Sustained Energy is ready to serve you, providing premium fuel complemented with specific nutrients that support enhanced fat utilization and lactic acid buffering. Give Sustained Energy a try – you’ll have 100% confidence in your fuel – and you’ll understand why it’s been the choice of thousands of endurance athletes for well over a decade. For maximum fueling variety and flexibility during your longest and hardest training sessions and races, mix or alternate Sustained Energy with Hammer Gel, HEED and/or Perpetuem. Extra Benefits: This product is ideally suited for the athlete who wants calories with as little taste and sweetness as possible. Soy Protein ensures a minimum of ammonia being released into the muscles, further reducing fatigue and tissue damage. Unless you complement your carbohydrate source with protein, your body will start to digest its own protein (muscle tissue) for energy after about 90 minutes of hard exercise. So when your training takes you beyond the range of HAMMER GEL alone, you can rely on SUSTAINED ENERGY with its 7:1 carbohydrate : protein ratio. SUSTAINED ENERGY contains a superior blend of complex carbohydrates, a precise amount of protein, and a few carefully selected micronutrients that all work synergistically to provide consistent, long-lasting energy. With SUSTAINED ENERGY, you'll have 100% confidence in your fuel, even during your longest and hardest training sessions and races. Without any added flavoring or sweeteners, it has a pleasant neutral flavor. Since 1992 SUSTAINED ENERGY has stood the test of time in every conceivable endurance and ultra-endurance event. No matter how difficult or lengthy your exercise or race is, SUSTAINED ENERGY will come through every time, and keep you going mile after mile, hour after hour. Suggested Doses by Body Weight*: Up to 120 pounds: up to 1.5 scoops/hour 120-155 pounds: up to 2 scoops/hour 155-190 pounds: up to 2.5 scoops/hour 190+ pounds: up to 3 scoops/hour *These are estimated doses. Each athlete should determine in training, under a variety of conditions, their personal optimum. Mixing Options You can mix and consume Sustained Energy three different ways depending on individual preference and logistical concerns. Please experiment with the following options to determine which works best for you. The One-Hour Bottle: This method works best in training or racing situations where you have a support crew and vehicle. They can keep your mixed bottles chilled and prepare fresh bottles of fuel along the way. If you’re without a support crew but still want to use this option for mixing, keep in mind that it’s obviously less convenient, as you’ll have to stop more frequently to mix your fuel drink. Also, because you are trying to fulfill both hydration and caloric requirements from one source, you have limited ability to adjust one without affecting the other. Either way, with or without a support crew, to make the one-hour bottle, mix the suggested number of scoops of Sustained Energy for your bodyweight in a small (20 ounces) or large (24-28 ounces) water bottle. Consume one bottle hourly. The Multi-Hour Bottle: This is by far the most convenient method of fueling because it allows you to be self-contained for many hours, requiring only additional plain water along the way. The only limitation is how many scoops you can fit into a bottle. Determine your proper hourly intake of scoops by experimenting with the numbers from the dosage chart. Let’s say you’ve determined through testing that 1.5 scoops of Sustained Energy per hour is your ideal caloric intake. You need a 6-hour fuel supply. Multiply the number of scoops you need by the hours that you will be exercising (in this case 1.5 scoops x 6 hours) and place in a large bottle with as much water as will fit. You may need to add a few scoops at a time to get it all to mix well. Then “nurse” this bottle, taking small sips every 15-20 minutes. In this concentration, the water in the mixed bottle does not contribute more than a couple of ounces to your hourly fluid intake needs. To meet your fluid requirements, carry a second and possibly even a third bottle of plain water, or use a hydration system, or know where you can refill along your route. Drink according to the temperature/humidity and your exertion level so that you consume in the range of 16-24 ounces of plain water per hour. When using the multi-hour bottle, as long as you can obtain water along the way, you’re set for hours of hard training. Gel or Paste: If you want to carry the highest volume of calories in the least amount of space, this is your best option. Sustained Energy can be made into a super-concentrated, near paste-like consistency and dispensed from a Hammer Gel flask. Using a blender or bowl and spoon, mix scoops of powder with a small amount of water, gradually adding water as necessary to create the consistency desired. Depending on how many scoops per hour you have determined you require, and based on how concentrated the mix is, each flask of Sustained Energy can supply you with 2-4 hours of fuel. As with the multi-hour bottle, you must carry additional bottles of plain water or use a hydration system to meet your fluid requirements.
