If using more than one fuel, be sure to combine all of the calories from all of the products consumed to reach a correct total hourly intake.


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.

Notes
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 Gel flavors 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 flavor to make it more mild for long-term use
