What we think
When it comes to performance nutrition, we like it simple. Flow Formula’s Endurance Drink Mix is just that – not only in ingredients but also in application.
Their mix is super easy to adjust based on your needs. They advertise 60 and 90, referring to how much fuel you get for either daily training or hard racing.
Two scoops = 60 and three scoops = 90. What’s that mean? It’s grams of carbs.
Why 60 / 90?
They use this as a guideline for fueling depending on your needs. Through following the latest in performance research, they’ve made a product that reflects what we know. For most training, the 60 will get you exactly what you need for most sessions. The 90 is great for big training days and racing…but it may take some getting used to.
The Endurance Drink Mix is specifically designed as a sole source of fuel and fluid for endurance athletes performing continuous exercise greater than an hour. No need to pack any other food, if you don’t want to.
Plenty of Options
The Endurance Drink Mix is super versatile, coming in a total of 4 options! The standard version, caffeinated, and both higher and lower sodium versions.
This caffeine option contains 184mg caffeine to boost performance (3 scoops). Wait, isn’t that a lot? Yes, but this is where the benefit comes in. “According to research, caffeine enhances endurance performance in amounts of 3 mg/kg with little to no increased benefits in higher dosages. Flow Formulas contains 184 mg caffeine which equates to about 3 mg/kg for a 135 pound individual.”
How to use it:
Mix 2-3 scoops with 16-24 ounces (2-3) cups of water. Shake vigorously and let dissolve for 15 minutes. Drink to hydration and fueling needs, consuming the full serving about every hour.
