Hammer Nutrition Sustained EnergyHammer Nutrition
The world’s first protein-fortified sports drink still stands the test of time.
Designed to provide steady energy, buffer lactic acid, and prevent lean-muscle cannibalization, this 7:1 carb to protein blend has been a fan favorite since 1992. It is especially popular with ectomorphic, hyper-metabolic body types with limited fat stores who struggle to maintain muscle mass during high volume training. With a neutral, mild flavor and no sweeteners, Sustained Energy is perfect for those who like to keep it simple.
- Long-lasting energy
- Lactic acid buffering
- Lean muscle mass protection
HOW TO USE SUSTAINED ENERGY
Gel or Paste - If you want to carry the highest volume of calories in the least amount of space, making a thick mix 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. You may also add Hammer Gel or HEED to alter the flavor, if desired. Depending on how many scoops per hour you require, and 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.
Suggested Doses by Body Weight*
- 0 - 120 lbs (approx 54.5 kg) - up to 1 scoop/hr. This provides 107 calories.
- 120-155 lbs (approx 54.5-70 kg) - 1 to 1.5 scoops/hr. This provides 107 to 160.5 calories.
- 155-190 lbs (approx 70-86 kg) - 1.5 to 2 scoops/hr. This provides approx 160.5 to 214 calories.
- 190+ lbs (86+ kg) - up to 2 or 3 scoops/hr. This provides approx 214 to 320 calories.
*These are estimated doses. Each athlete should determine in training, under a variety of conditions, their personal optimum.
Maltodextrin – A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise.
Isolated Soy Protein – A dry powder food ingredient that has been separated or isolated from the other components of the soybean, making it 90 to 95 percent protein, and nearly carbohydrate- and fat-free.
L-Carnosine – This dipeptide (a combination of two amino acids) L-carnosine is a potent lactic acid buffer. It also offers antioxidant support.
L-Carnitine Tartrate – L-Carnitine Tartrate is a compound containing L-carnitine chelated (“bonded”) to L-tartrate, which is a salt of tartaric acid. L-carnitine is the key nutrient involved in the shuttling of fatty acids into the cell for energy production. Tartrate is a potent antioxidant.
Choline Bitartrate – A type of B-complex vitamin that helps with efficient use of body fat stores as energy. Choline bitartrate also supports enhanced cognition, learning, and memory.
Chromium Polynicotinate – This trace mineral helps regulate blood sugar and plays a vital role in energy production.
