Gym closed? No problem.
Just because the gym might be closed doesn’t mean you shouldn’t work out.
Mistakes are also bound to happen, but there are some items that can instantly improve your workout experience.
Discover these fitness essentials every guy needs to have ahead.
Wireless earbuds come with many benefits, and one of the best is their convenience when working out.
With wireless earbuds, you no longer have to worry about getting loose wires caught on a machine; this allows more freedom for your movements.
Wireless earbuds are also sweat-resistant and, if you’re worried about losing them, they typically come with a case that can charge them.
Gone are the days of wearing baggy sweatpants at the gym. Much better alternatives are joggers or tailored pants.
Not only do they look better, but they’re far more comfortable to wear during your workout.
Compression Shorts and Shirts
In addition to finding a nice pair of joggers, you should also wear compression shorts and shirts.
Both can withstand all the sweat you break during your workout, which can weigh you down.
Like joggers, compression shorts and shirts are also far more comfortable, especially when you’re exercising.
Some great brands for activewear you might not have heard of include Lululemon, Gym Shark, and Rhone.
Protein is one of the most important aspects of building muscle. The easiest way to consume enough in a day is to drink protein shakes right after your workout.
A blender bottle can mix the protein with the water or milk that you are drinking when you’re on the go. Plus, you can get blender bottles in various styles that suit your interests.
A major mistake people tend to make when they work out is not going into it with a plan.
That is why another gym essential every guy needs is a fitness app.
There are some fantastic apps available on smartphones that are free and can guide you through your workout.
A final item every guy must have is a pair of quality gym shoes.
Having a shoe that is reserved for your workouts can keep them clean and long-lasting.
Also, the type of shoe you get will affect your workout.
For example, if you are someone who squats, look for shoes with flat bottoms.
If you do a lot of cardio, get running shoes.
You can also find a hybrid that works for both, but the main takeaway is to get a shoe that’s tailor-made for the gym or at home workouts.
Ready to workout, but don’t know where to start?
Yeah, we totally get it.
Staying in doors to be safe can take it’s toll. Even as the world begins to slowly re-open, we’ll still probably have to wait until we can get back in the gym.
So, what’s a lad to do?
Keep it moving!
As always, stay safe & healhty.
