Every now and again a customer writes to us to thank Hammer for their products. All sounds like a bit of self promotion but “it it what the customer said”
Thank you so much for your quality products. I first tried HEED and Hammer Gels 4 years ago and really liked the taste and how they reacted with my body. I have since tried others but I have always gone back to HEED and Hammer Gel (Love the jugs for value). Around 18 months ago I started researching your other products, and as I’m competing mostly in 6, 12 and 24 hour events I have discovered Recoverite and Perpetuem – two more fantastic products. Now that I have had enough experience with using these products, I have found my personal mixing ratios/combinations for a wide range of conditions. Energy and recovery wise they are fantastic, but until recently I have still suffered from cramping. This problem has been with me for over 20 years, even as far back as when I competed in triathlon in the late 80s. Mostly I have put it down to insufficient preparation. Having read about your Endurolytes (and hundreds of pages of nutritional information from other sources)
I thought I’d give them a go – unbelievable the difference. So much so that in Feb this year I competed in the 40+ solo category in the Dusk til Dawn 12 hour at Canungra, finishing first in the category and running as high as 5th solo overall. I only started using them after around 2 hours into the race, taking two every hour after that – and not a single issue with cramps. My recovery was so good that I could continue with my training program straight away. In the past I have had such muscle soreness that I have not been able to look at a bike for at least a week.
