Victus: Simplicity Meets Performance

Victus might just be the simplicity you have been looking for when it comes to your nutrition regimen. They like to keep it simple, so simple they have named their drink mixes with the time you should consume them… Before (01), During (02), and After (03). However, don’t be deceived by their simple nomenclature. Their team has done over 6,000 hours of research with graduate students at the University of Wageningen over a 6-month period to perfect their products!

At Victus they like to say “nourish your inner warrior” and we believe they are here to fuel your inner warrior. Whether it is a hard training session or you are going for a PR in a race, this may be just what you have been looking for.

Enough of that chatter, let's dive into what makes Victus different and how you might be about to nourish your inner warrior with their products!

Victus Drink Mix Before (01)

Victus Before (01) comes in 2 refreshing flavors: lemon and pear or orange and apple with one serving containing, 110mg caffeine anhydrous and 900mg guarana extract (seed) which provides an additional 90mg of caffeine. That is 200mg of caffeine to give you a nice jump start before your training session even begins!

They have also added several different amino acids that may help to boost energy, build muscle, increase blood flow, and aid in performance. Outside of the possible performance boosting ingredients it also contains a moderate amount of sodium at 240mg per serving.

For best results, you should take Victus Before (01) 15-30 minutes before your training session. This will give your body time to begin digesting and absorbing the nutrients and allow you to attack whatever might lie ahead!

Victus Drink Mix During (02)

With 3 tasty and easy-to-drink flavors (apple and lemon, strawberry, and lemon, or pineapple and citrus), Victus During (02) has everything you need to fuel your training sessions! It has 45 grams of multiple transportable carbohydrates (MTC) per serving and this helps maximizes your body's ability to absorb the fuel you are providing it. There is also 343mg of sodium per serving to help make sure you are staying fully hydrated during all your training sessions!

Our favorite part about Victus’s During (02) is that is mixes with ease and there are no clumps left behind in the bottle. The best way to achieve this smooth consistency is by adding one serving into 620 mL of water. This ratio will create an isotonic solution, which means your body doesn’t need additional fluids to aid in the absorption of the carbohydrates once it reaches your small intestine.

Victus Drink Mix After (03)

Often times a recovery drink can be hard to drink right after your training session due to the immense sweet rich flavor, but we force it down the hatch in order to get the benefits of the additional protein and carbohydrates. If you can relate to this than we may have the perfect solution for you… Victus After (03).

Their After (03) drink mix is far less rich than most since they have taken a fruit flavored approach! They have orange and mandarin, apple and lemon, strawberry and raspberry all of which have been third party tested for purity and quality by NZVT (Dutch Safeguards System for Dietary Supplements in Elite Sport).

A few of the standout aspects of the After (03) is that it contains 21 grams of total protein and 10 grams of carbohydrates which is the perfect ratio of carbs to protein following a strength session or added to a recovery smoothie! They have also incorporated branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, & valine) that may help jumpstart the muscle-building process.

Lastly, there are 25 vitamins and minerals that aid in daily health such as vitamins D, C, & K as well as B vitamins that are critical for energy metabolism.

So, how do I use this Victus stuff?

Well you are in luck because all of the Victus products come in a single serve options making it easier than ever to try. Here are a few scenarios to consider before adding a some of their products to your cart!

Daily ride or run (1-2 hours)

Long ride or run, low intensity (2+ hours)

  • Consume breakfast with a focus on carbohydrates roughly 2-3 hours ahead of the session
  • Victus Before (01) 30 minutes prior to your session
  • Every 30-45 minutes during Victus During (02)
  • Within an hour after Victus After (03)

With the above, you’ll get anywhere from 60-90 grams of carbohydrates per hour, depending on if you choose to consume every 30 or every 45 minutes. This hits right within our recommendations for fueling, depending on intensity, experience, and duration.

Short Ride or Run, High Intensity (<1 hour)

Short Ride or Run, Low Intensity (<1 hour)

  • Sips of water during
  • Within an hour after Victus After (03)
