The OTE Energy System
OTE themselves suggest 'refuelling during training sessions of up to 60 minutes isn't necessary if your diet and pre-exercise meals contain sufficient carbohydrate; just ensure you remain hydrated prior to exercise.'

It's when you're out longer that you might have to replenish your energy stores on the move and that's where OTE's easily portable nutrition comes into its own.

OTE drinks, gels and bars are designed to be used ‘modularly' to help you achieve an optimal fuelling and hydration balance. To this end, OTE bars and gels contain multiples of 20g servings of carbohydrates,

For a steady workout, OTE recommend consuming 40g carbohydrate an hour. That's two small bananas worth.

OTE can supply 40g carbohydrate in a more compact, portable format via a 43g sachet of their energy drink in 500ml water, or two OTE Energy Gels or two OTE Sports Bars.

For a brisk workout, OTE recommend consuming 60g carbohydrate an hour which OTE can supply via one energy drink + a gel, or one energy drink + half an energy bar.

For a hard workout, OTE recommend consuming 70g carbohydrate an hour.

OTE is a UK company staffed by sports nutrition specialists such as Ironman triathlete Pete Slater who made his name as a founder of SIS (Science in Sport) in the 1990s and is credited as the man who formulated energy drinks for Chris Boardman in his heyday. You can be confident that OTE know what they are doing.
