The athletes of MOD have been using Hammer products for several seasons now and look forward to the opportunity to stay on the forefront of product use with this exciting company!br /br /Some of the primary products the MOD athletes utilize are:br /br /span style=”font-weight: bold;”Heed/span: A complex-carbohydrate sports drink that is exceptional for the majority of our workouts. We’ve found that using Heed instead of plain water in our bottles even for short 1 workouts helps us maintain energy and stamina while staving off workout-ending “sugar-bonks”.br /br /span style=”font-weight: bold;”Sustained Energy:/span This energy drink is THE choice for long efforts. It’s balanced with carbs, protein and fats to keep fueling your metabolism at any level of exertion but especially when you’re out for 2+ hours. We’re looking forward to using Sustained Energy during the upcoming season’s sprint competitions where calories are needed but solid foods might downgrade performance.br /br /span style=”font-weight: bold;”Premium Insurance Caps:/span These are, hands down, the most full-spectrum multi-vitamin we’ve used. As with many other supplements you often must look to the span style=”font-style: italic;”absence/span of illness or negative symptoms in order to see the benefits of usage. Seeing as how all of us have gone through a (so far) successful training season with zero illness we take it as a sign that regular vitamin supplementation with PICs are a good choice.br /br /span style=”font-weight: bold;”Recoverite: /spanIt’s no secret that recovery is the key to successful training. The MOD Project athletes have experimented with several products over the past few seasons, seeking that one ideal solution which maximizes training effects while preparing you for the next session. Our research into these topics revealed that the amino acid span style=”font-weight: bold;”glutamine/span is a huge aid in repairing damaged muscle tissue as well as boosting immune system efficiency when your body is weakened from tough sessions. Recoverite combines that with protein and complex carbs and gives you a glassful of power to beat any barbell-pounding beefcake’s muscle shake, no problem.br /br /Check out Hammer’s website for more products and information: www.hammernutrition.com.br /br /To purchase Hammer products locally in the Methow Valley, check out Winthrop Mountain Sports in downtown Winthrop. span style=”font-style: italic;”span style=”font-weight: bold;”span style=”font-style: italic;”span style=”font-style: italic;”/span/span/span/spandiv class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2910103639238326543-1437946723088859526?l=methowolympicdevelopment.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
