FAQ's - INFINIT Swim

INFINIT Swim
We will continue to update these frequently questions as we get new questions.

  1. When would Jet Fuel be used?  Jet Fuel is used as a prehydration product and as a during workout blend.  It is hard to say if it is necessary as a prehyrdration product as all routines are different, if an athlete is coming to the pool light on calories, using Jet Fuel in the 60 minute window prior to the swim can be beneficial.
  2. Why are recovery products like Repair necessary?  Recovery products promote: Protein Synthesis, Glycogen Synthesis and Re-Hydration.  All are important elements in the full recovery process, necessary to take full advantage of intense workouts.
  3. When are recovery products best taken and why?  Recovery products are best ingested less than 30 minutes from the completion of intense workouts.  This timing is necessary to prevent protein synthesis being fuelled by the muscles themselves.  Having sufficient levels of protein present following a workout ensures that the growth and repair is supported by an anabolic process which leads to muscle growth.
  4. Are INFINIT Swim products suitable to smaller athletes?  Regardless of athlete size the concentration of a drink or proportions of raw materials should remain the same, the only difference for smaller versus larger athletes is the total quantity consumed.  Smaller athletes sweat less and burn less calories, therefore would need to consume a smaller quantity.
  5. How do you know how to customize for an individual athlete?  Following a nutritional consult we use information of body type, training intensity, symptoms, sweat rate and preferences to create a blend customized to an individual.
  6. How much does it cost?  To fuel on Jet Fuel and Repair which is recommended to maximize workout performance and recovery, it costs less than $4.50.
  7. How will we know if our son or daughter is benefitting from taking the products?  They will be able to swim to their full potential during workouts, feel stronger during workouts and feel better, more alert following swims.
  8. What is the best way to support my son or daughter in using INFINIT products? The night before swim workouts - prepare Jet Fuel and Repair bottles by adding powder to empty sport bottles (600ml).  In the morning prior to going to the pool fill Jet Fuel bottle with water for during workout.  When they finish the swim and shower fill the Repair bottle with water and consume on the way to school.
  9. How would I know if my son or daughter needs to use RAW?  RAW is only to be used if your child is not able to get enough protein from real food.  Swimmers require 0.7-0.8g of protein per pound of body weight per day - augment any gap that can't be closed with RAW.  Mix into smoothie, JET FUEL or sweetened milk beverage.
