The most important rule is fuel before you need it… eat before you are hungry... not as you feel yourself crashing or hitting the wall.
- We generally advise you to take your first sports gel somewhere between 60 - 75 minutes into a workout, and then take them every 45 minutes or so from then on.
- Always take our energy gels with water, as without water, they take longer to digest and enter the blood stream.
