I usually don’t use this stuff, but tried some samples today and it makes sense to use them as my weekends look like they’ll be trying to pack in longer rides (4 to 5hours each hopefully).
Also I’m on a cal deficit so I do worry about messing up a workout day that’s quite tough because I messed feeling up. Usually I’m an eat naturally guy but there is a time and place.
Anyway, I like SIS GO electrolyte. Good price wise in the UK too. Anything else that has more vitamins and electrolytes in there like it. Doesn’t need to be max carb, just some carbs is fine and not silly expensive.
Not wanting to make my own at the moment thanks! Did all that before and it makes sense but want to try OTC stuff for now!
The gu may seem more expensive, but if you compare energy/carbs and other things you need more product of SIS Go Electro to obtain the same values as the roctane formula. Thats something to consider… Price is not the only factor.
I use one Nuun sport electrolyte tablet in each bottle, along with Cytosport Cytocarb Powder (maltodextryn) with the appropriate amount of scoops (2,3,4) depending on the fueling requirements of the ride.
Cytocarb has no taste, so you only get the taste of the Nuun sport tablet. Works well and both are available on Amazon.
