Using Our System

Mountain Fuel can be used as a Sports Nutrition system for any type of physical activity and can, if needed fuel you for 24 hour+ events or simply taken individually to suite your energy or recovery needs.

Typically in preparation of an event if you wanted to utilise the whole system you would;1. Mix up a Night Fuel the night before your event with hot milk or water, drinking/sipping it at around 7pm (in plenty of time before bed and last loo stop as we would also suggest, as you should have been throughout the last few weeks getting into the habit of sipping water throughout the day / early evening to ensure you are always fully hydrated). Just because you’re asleep does not mean you can’t prepare for your next training session or event, Night Fuel helps you get up raring to go, feeding your body at it’s optimum time of recovery.2. Morning Fuel can be utilised as a pre-event meal as it is light on the stomach and quickly absorbed, it doesn’t have to be just for breakfast :) you can add seeds, fresh/dried fruit etc and even a small handful of oats if that takes your fancy. However bear in mind you want to start your event primed and ready to go and not with your stomach still working overtime breaking down your big breakfast / meal.3. If possible start sipping, swilling and swallowing your *Xtreme Energy Fuel anything up to four hours before your activity / event. Essentially the slower you drip your fuel into your system the more time the body has to absorb it and maximise performance. Some of our users, if they have had a hard week or are particularly keen on really pushing themselves will also sip, swill and swallow an Xtreme Energy the day before an event too, ensuring their system is alert, primed and ready. Xtreme Energy Fuel gives you a sustained energy release, is easy on the stomach, tastes great and is ideal for hard and fast anaerobic, cardio workouts or equally endurance events. You put the effort in and we’ll power you along.

4. Prepare your Ultimate Recovery Fuel and put it in a cool bag if you are using fresh milk as ideally you want to start sipping it within 20 minutes of finishing your event. However for maximum affect DO NOT drink it too quickly, however good it may taste as it is the same principle as Xtreme Energy, drink slowly in the system and the body will have more time to absorb it. Ultimate Recovery Fuel is a drink you want to exercise for! It tastes phenomenal and does what it says, there is no better Recovery product on the market.

*An Xtreme Energy Fuel  can fuel you for a marathon where you take 3 to 4 hours, however we would say you get maximum benefit for up to 1 to 1 1/2 hours depending on intensity so any time after this we would suggest either carrying extra or having access to points on your activity.
