Who are you arguing with? Biggiep doesn't seem to be wanting an argument yet you seem to be taking it down to some personal level against him in an effort to convince everyone that your bike rides are more intense than anyone else's exercise...
Take a chill...

You've completely missed the point though, you're treating all human bodies as working the same. This isn't about me vs you, this is about how some people benefit from electrolytes, you don't but I do. I wouldn't "look bad" because I'm not bothered about what a keyboard warrior has set out to prove, I'm happy trying to improve the sports I partake in and using supplements when I find they work.

In terms of sports I believe that most people would find an hours boxing more intense than an hours cycling. But that's not to say that cycling never gets intense, however boxing is often said to be the most demanding exercise.

ESPN have done a great list developed by a panel of experts who look at all the elements of each sport to show how demanding they are.

On the contrary I find these excellent for avoiding cramp during high intensity sport (such as boxing).

I also suffer with photosensitive migraines when dehydrated and find I'm not affected when I use these but I am just drinking water during exercise.

Thanks OP, good deal.
Better deal than the Aldi electrolyte tablets in their recent cycling gear special.
I used to have these but I've changed to this electrolyte powder and I find I respond better to it. Just add it to water and juice, it's much cheaper if anyone is looking for an alternative.

whats a hard ride !!
i use the high5 tabs to flavour my water and they definately stop my legs cramping during/after riding my mtb offroad
usually do 60-90 miles a week with 2k-3k metres of climbing.

So for the record you think cycling is more intense than boxing? Interesting.

I can only go off the results I get and I've tried with and without. So much as you don't want to believe or it doesn't work for you my body does respond better with them and I'm sure a lot of people benefit from them too.

​Work for me on the 100 mile ultras and I always go for sub 24h especially as I don't like gels
Good price, also good to see the expert analysis from the professional atheletes that frequent HUKD
These help with hangovers?

You're my hero.
I've been using these for a few years for cycling and gym. It might be the placebo effect, but it seems to work for me. Best price I had recently was £8 for 2. This is a blinding deal. Ordered 8 berry ones. Heat added :-)
use to use these but are pricey like sis ones too but i prefer the wiggle own brand ones. much cheaper
Also have the "X'treme" caffeinated ones in Berry flavour at £25 for 8x20. Tastes like Refreshers but with a caffeine kick.
I'm sure I'd already posted this, but it ain't there.

I often suffer from dehydration. Would these help with that, even without sport, or would I just gain loads of weight?

Please no "just drink more water" comments please.

You must be joking. This must be a joke.

This is not really consistent with your later remarks about the demands of cycling.

Team Sky comment for example about prep. for Tour Down Under:
'Body mass losses incurred during the race will be calculated and riders will consume 150% of the fluid lost through sweating in the hours post-race. Fluid intake will be achieved via a mix of recovery drinks, electrolyte drinks and fruit smoothies.'

With a 300W threshold, you're a strong rider, so, at these outputs, you must sweat a fair bit in hot weather. Unless you are careful with your diet and monitor your water weight, you may well run low on electrolytes.

fwiw, I'm on a low sodium diet, and find 1-2 tabs/day help me recover better and quicker. Low body sodium means the body doesn't store enough water and blood volume decreasing, leading to raised heart beat and an increased breathing rate. My daily records show a good correlation between adequate hydration and lower heart rates during exercise. [and yes, too much sodium isn't great for you either!]

TL;DR? YMMV, but I find these and other electrolyte tabs with salt help in hot weather (former international runner, keen cyclist).

You would weigh a bit more from having a higher water balance in your body, but that's not anything to worry about. However, doing some activity would be a good way of losing weight (almost as good as diet).

Yes these are good for dehydration, the morning after, running, cycling and gym workouts. I use them for all and they work for me.
Buy a tub of salt and a tub of lo salt, and a box of chelates magnesium tablets. Spoon of each salt and 2 tablets with a pint of water, flavour it if needed.

Much cheaper and more effective. Been doing it for months.

However, it involves carrying two tubs of salt, a box of tabs, a spoon, and a sachet or bottle of flavouring around with you, and a couple of minutes stirring. These are quite significant downsides if you're stopping at a water station halfway through an ultramarathon, or trying to minimize your weight on a long cycle.

Your rides aren't that impressive? Am I missing something?

From a regular 100 mile rider
Why do people have to be so combative? What works for one may not work for others accept that and move on, be happy...

I have to say that I really like the "extreme" version of these tabs with the caffiene shot in them, I'm usually a bit dismissive about "sports nutrition" marketing hype, but having been recommended these by a cycling friend they noticeably increase my performance while out on a ride.
Thanks for this, you've saved me a fortune! Also got a voucher code by signing up to their newsletter (WELCOME17355) which brought it down by another £1. Prices do vary for the different flavours.
