Variety is the spice of life – we couldn’t agree more. We understand (‘cause we’ve been there) that after numerous hours of training and racing, the body needs to mix it up a little in terms of what goes in the tank. That’s why CLIF set out to create another energy food option that would complement their bars and gels. The result is CLIF SHOT BLOKS™. They’re simple-to-handle, easy-to- chew, and provide similar nutrition to SHOT® gel, so they’ll fit seamlessly into your training and racing nutrition program. Nutrition – Carbohydrates and Electrolytes SHOT BLOKS™ offer very similar nutrition to SHOT Energy Gel. The primary ingredient for both is brown rice syrup which provides easily assimilated carbohydrates for working muscles. Both products also provide mineral salts known as electrolytes. These electrolytes allow electrical impulses to travel properly throughout your body, permitting normal bodily function. When you sweat, you start to deplete your electrolyte stores and experience potential performance decline, so it’s best to help replenish them through food and fluid intake.
