Ben Kanute's Endurance Blend w/ Caffeine
Ben's go-to blend for middle distance / 70.3 triathlon — 25 serving package (25 hours of nutrition)
- High carb to replace the need for any gels
- Added caffeine for a race day boost
- Very low flavor profile so its easy to drink even on the hottest days
I created this blend with the help of INFINIT's team of sports dietitians. I will use this blend on the bike during 70.3 racing and other high intensity races and training sessions when I want to maximize my carbohydrate intake without the need for any gels. It has all the sodium and electrolytes I need to replace what I'm losing through my sweat without the need for salt pills and electrolyte tablets. I also added branched chain amino acids (BCAA's) to help act as an additional fuel source during these longer, high intensity races where my calorie expenditure is extremely high. This blend does have caffeine and is the one I primarily use on race day. I will use a non-caffeinated version of this blend during training.
I chose INFINIT because of the customizability and the simplicity of the product. It delivers what I need in the simplest form, and it tastes good! I love that I can adjust the taste. I have tried so many sports drinks over the years that make me feel even more thirsty because of how thick tasting and sugary they can taste. I also have found INFINIT really dissolves well compared to other drink powders.
