I sweat a lot regardless of season. Muscle cramps were a routine occurrence during longer rides and, worse, charley-horses while I was sleeping. The complete electrolytes provided here keep the cramps away. Also, I will crack a few pellets open and make my own electrolyte gels using the Hammer Flask.
On hot, humid summer days, I take an Endurolyte capsule before a ride, after each hour of riding, and when I finish my ride. So far, cramping has been eliminated for me. However, results may vary with each individual.
I borrowed Endurolyte capsules from a friend to finish a ride when my legs were cramping so severely I had previously stopped pedaling. I now use them on all rides over 4 hours to prevent leg cramps.
I use endurolytes in the summer when I am working outside and sweating a lot. They keep me from getting a headache from the sun and feeling sick. I don't exercise for fun, so don't need them in the winter, but they are a lifesaver in the summer.
I started using Endurolytes after a bad leg cramping episode on a metric ride a few years ago. I've since started using them for all rides over 35 miles and after intense trainer & indoor rowing workouts. Electrolyte maintenance is important for endurance efforts.
I rely on Hammer Endurolytes to help me cope with Sonoran Desert heat. I work diligently at hydration to avoid cramps, but my insurance is this product. I use it to replace electrolytes on rides longer than two hours when the temperature is high. We have many triple-digit temperature days, I leave early to ride, but the bike computer still shows the temperature when I am riding goes above 100 degrees regularly.
The two pills every hour worked perfect. If you weigh more might need 3-4 per hour. Best to try out on your training ride first.
I began taking these daily almost a year ago and no longer have issues with leg cramps on long rides. I also take one capsule before a long ride especially on hat days.
I often get cramps, even when I drink enough. It's easy to just take two tablets before I head out and two more when I come back. This has reduced my cramping significantly.
this product helps me avoid leg cramps on hot days, when I take 2 every 1-2 hours, I use empty tic tac containers to enable me to replenish one handed while riding
