Hammer Nutrition Review

This review is in some ways a retraction. I’d never given Hammer Nutrition much consideration, for several reasons:

  • The issues that Rebekah Keat had (claimed that contaminated Hammer supplements had led to a positive drug test)
  • On arrival in NZ it was promptly adopted by some training groups that I felt were too eager to look for a magic pill
  • The thought of a multi hour bottle of Perpetuem powder was a bit nauseating

As part of my association with the Rotorua Half Ironman I’ve been taking Training sessions on the course and it seemed appropriate that I should have a working knowledge of the nutrition sponsors product – Hammer. They were kind enough to send me some samples which have eliminated my reservations.

Trek Speed Concept 7.0 2013

The new range of Trek Speed Concepts finally arrived in NZ last week, allowing two of my clients to finally get some sleep (as they both wished to race on the weekend just gone).

The XL model had to be special ordered so is the only one around, the small is a bit more widely available.
