While I have used several of Hammer’s products such as Heed and Sustained Energy in the past, this year I have had the great opportunity to explore some of their supplements through Hammer’s support of the Hagens Berman Cycling Team. One product that impressed me greatly was Hammer’s REM Caps. Being an endurance athlete means that generally by the time my head hits the pillow at the end of the day I am out like a light. As a result, I have never really thought about using a sleep aid. This year definitely changed that. Continue Reading »

Alright, let’s face it; for the next few months, the weather in about three-quarters of the U.S. just isn’t going to be that great. For those who are fortunate enough to live in warm temps in January, please continue with your winter running and riding (or take a trip down to Tucson for the annual Hammer Camps!) or whatever it is you get to do in short sleeves. But for everyone else longing for warmer weather, there certainly is still hope! Continue Reading »
The Europeans were onto something when they decided to place the sport of cyclocross at the far end of the cycling calendar. Just before the legs and mind have had enough for the year, ‘cross comes around and riders give it one more push before throwing in the towel. Luckily, the races are of short duration and the terrain often favors technical ability over raw power. This means that riders can usually stay competitive well into November, and for a select few, all the way through to national championships. Continue Reading »

We believe that Perpetuem Solids, while they can be used as your sole source of calories, are best used as a part-time, solid-food source of calories. They are designed primarily to augment your use of the Hammer Nutrition liquid fuels, helping you reach your targeted hourly caloric total during exercise/competition, especially that lasting more than two hours.

One is an ultra-runner, the other an off road truck driver, the two sports couldn’t have less in common. As different as their endeavors may be, Ryan Sandes and Joe Bacal share much more than just their nutrition sponsor. They both have had near perfect seasons, capped with huge victories this week for each. Continue Reading »

A little known or respected beast, the javelina (not quite a pig) is a brave creature of the Southwest. Javelina band together in herds of up to 50 to drive off the much stronger coyote and bobcat, but keep a low profile to avoid the vicious puma. As our good friend Owen of Tucson Hammer Camp fame will attest, never turn your back to a wild pack of javelina . . . Continue Reading »
Of all the disciplines and all the courses in 24 hour racing, the solo competition at Moab has to be the hardest of the hard. Every mile of the course wants to put you in the ER, and the slightest loss of focus will do just that. Staying both physically strong and mentally aware at this distance requires the rider to be just as stubborn as the rocks they negotiate. Extensive training and a nutrition plan worthy of 240 miles of off-road riding are another “must-have” for this type of undertaking. Continue Reading »
