CLIF SHOT Energy Gel is a source of carbohydrates for performance athletes during activity. Any performance-oriented athlete needing a quick burst of energy can benefit from CLIF SHOT Energy Gel.
CLIF SHOT has fewer ingredients than most other brands - whether it’s their gear or their food, performance athletes can’t afford to be loaded down with anything superfluous that doesn’t directly enhance performance. Less is more. The streamlined approach gives you a performance advantage with a fast-acting energy source from maltodextrin and dried cane syrup.
Generally, performance athletes need to consume 200-400 calories per hour from all sources, such as gels, chews, bars and drinks. We recommend one packet 15 minutes prior to activity, followed by 2-3 packets per hour during activity to help support your needs.
CLIF SHOT BLOKS Energy Chews are semi-solid, easy-to-chew sources of carbohydrates—your body's preferred source of fuel during activity.
CLIF SHOT BLOKS are primarily used by performance athletes – cyclists, runners, mountain bikers, triathletes, adventure racers, etc. However, any performance-oriented athlete needing a quick burst of energy can benefit from CLIF SHOT BLOKS.
Half a packet of CLIF SHOT BLOKS can be eaten 15 minutes prior to activity to increase blood sugar levels, followed by 1-2 packets per hour during activity. Consumption of CLIF SHOT BLOKS should always be followed with a mouthful of water.
Active individuals and athletes have high energy demands. With a mix of carbohydrates, protein and fibre, CLIF Bars supply working muscles with the energy they need for extended periods of activity. Thanks to their portability and great taste, CLIF Bars are a source of energy for athletes and active people who respect their bodies and the world around them.
CLIF Bar is the original energy bar made with wholesome ingredients that deliver energy. CLIF Bars have whole ingredients you can see and taste, such as rolled oats, fruits and nuts. Each bar contains B6 and B12 which contribute to the normal release of energy for use in the body. The bars are also a source of protein and fibre.
For best results, CLIF Bars should be eaten about one to three hours before exercise along with water to prevent hunger and supply energy to working muscles. During prolonged, lower intensity exercise such as hiking or bike touring, CLIF Bars can be eaten during activity to help satiate hunger and meet carbohydrate demands. CLIF Bars can also be eaten as a snack between meals or during a long, busy day to help sustain energy.
