Using GU during your regular workouts will keep your mind alert and active, and your muscles going strong. GU gives the most concentrated form of immediate energy with no stomach bulk or distress, is quickly and efficiently absorbed, and will maintain your blood sugar at the optimal level for a great workout start to finish.
During a workout or race, no matter what type, you need to quickly absorb carbohydrate-based calories to replace the glucose you are burning at 400 - 600 per hour or you will begin to lose concentration and energy. The fat, fiber and protein found in bars are very slow to absorb and create unwanted bulk in the stomach. GU is created for the body during exercise, and because of its form and ingredients is absorbed much faster than a bar so you will feel the energy almost immediately.
GU Energy Gel contains maltodextrin, the best complex carbohydrate for delivering energy to working muscles. GU also contains the optimal balance of carbohydrates for the body during exercise: 80% complex/20% simple. It is this balance of maltodextrin and fructose in GU that delivers a quick rise in blood sugar and maintains that glucose level for up to 45 minutes during exercise.
By simply adding GU to your normal workout routine - one packet 15 minutes before starting then one packet every 45 minutes or so - you will feel strong and energized, be able to maintain your effort throughout the workout, feel better when you finish, and recover quickly for your next workout. If you want to have a good workout you have to supply your body with the right fuel - GU Energy Gel.
GU Energy Gel is sold is boxes of 24 gels. Available in a wide variety of flavors.

Used the Gu gels with caffeine for a 300 mile gravel race that started at midnight. These were great to keep me going just before sunup when I know my body would come back to life. Great flavor with a caffeine punch in a small easy to carry size.
I like to get a verity of brands and flavors for my gels to keep things interesting. My latest purchase was the GU mint chocolate. This flavor has a thinner texture than the other GU's. It was great! For very long rides it gets hard to put down some of the thicker GU's, but I can always put down mint chocolate. I like the easy removal tab on GU gels, though it can be tedious to properly dispose of it. The Clif gels have the leash for the tab, though it usually creates another opening.
As suggested,15 minutes before a ride & 45 minutes into it. Has proved to be an energy fueled guaranteed,bicycle ride consistently. With proper hydration & one or two packs in my jersey pocket has been a terrific formula. I have a runner friend who also swears by using GU energy gels during her runs. I take them along with a Power Bar & cheese sticks in my jersey pockets.
I have been using GU gels for forever. It really does pick you up when you need it. I usually fill my gel flask with gu and water, shake well to mix and put it in my jersey pocket. Easier than fumbling with single serving packets. If I anticipate a long ride, I do carry a couple of extra single packets just in case. Vanilla Bean is my go to. As long as it works and they donï¿½t change the formula I will keep using them.
I've been using these GU mandarin,energy Gels for many years. I enjoy one while stretching out before a ride. And have always included one at my rest or halfway point. Plus an extra one on board for a hard ride. I used to think maybe GU energy gels were just for taste. But seeing how many runners also use them diligently for their runs. Has kept me believing.
WOW! Not only does Gu taste amazing, it also keeps me feeling extremely strong during my races. I always need a good caffeine boost in the middle of races to get me to the end of a hard race, and this gel does the job. I love the variety of flavors that are offered, and this will be an item I continue to use
