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.
