Summer is the time for outdoor training! Take exciting classes, train anywhere, hydrate and track calories burned with our collection of items.
Yoga, stretching, Pilates, fitness with dumbbells — a sports mat is suitable for all these purposes. It is important to choose an accessory that will be resistant to damage and will not slip on the floor surface. One suitable option is the Karmatta rug. Its underside is made of neoprene, a material that is soft to the touch. The upper side is made of nylon, which absorbs moisture well, does not rub the skin and is easy to clean. Exercising on a mat is much more beneficial for your joints than on a hard floor.
“At the gym, you can easily save money and time if you force yourself to work out at home. And here the most important thing is not to force yourself, but honestly, without fools, want to strengthen your entire body in a few minutes in the morning in a couple of months and make it the very habit that will remain until the end of your life, ”experts write.
Elastic band for fitness
Bands are the lightest and most compact sports equipment with which you can do stretching and strengthening exercises for the muscles of the whole body. Changing the load is easy — just use tapes of different thicknesses. For this, sets of several rubber bands are suitable. For example, a set of elastic bands Stride. The set contains three elastic bands with different levels of resistance (9.5 kg; 13.6 kg; 17.3 kg). Adjust the difficulty level, increase the load and train without leaving your home.
“The advantages of such equipment are compactness and lightness, low price, reduced likelihood of injury and the ability to work out all muscle groups,” says Milena Milachich, lead coach of the TOPSTRETCHING studio network, master of sports in rhythmic gymnastics and blogger.
Keep track of your health, sleep quality and sports performance with a smart bracelet. It is enough to put it on your wrist and start training. The bracelet will provide a complete picture of the state of the body, the level of physical activity and fatigue. One of the popular and affordable gadgets is the Klikklog smart bracelet with constant heart rate monitoring. Analyze your data with it, compare the results and move towards a healthy body.
“With the help of a smart bracelet, achievements are visible from day one. And the fruits of every hour of training, daily results and their dynamics, presented visually, are the best motivation to move on, ”experts say.
An indispensable thing for sports is wireless headphones. Especially if you are not alone at home. Take a closer look at the Stride headphones. This is a sports wireless gadget with water splash protection function. Special silicone pads securely fix the position of the earbuds in the ear while running and jumping, so you don’t have to worry about them falling out of your ears during training. Operating time at medium volume — up to five hours.
Bottle for water
While exercising, it is important to stay hydrated and keep a bottle of water handy. The compact Amungen juicer bottle will become an indispensable accessory during sports.
“To ensure normal water balance, drink 2–3 glasses of water 2–3 hours before training. During training — 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup of water every 15–20 minutes, ”experts advise.
In a multifunctional bottle, you can not only pour water, but also squeeze citrus fruits — an orange or a lemon, as the kit comes with a special nozzle. Dilute the juice with warm water, add a mint leaf, stir the resulting liquid — and the drink is ready!
