Our daily routines have been disrupted. Many of us are working remotely for first time and eating at home has become the norm. Going to the gym, a big part of many of our lives, is not an option right now. Since working out is so crucial for our physical and mental well-being, it's time to adapt.
So how do you keep your fitness routine without leaving the house? We're glad you asked. Here are some products and tips for your home workouts.
When you're trying to avoid unnecessary contact with germy surfaces, the floor is not your friend. A yoga mat is easy to clean and easier to roll up and store until your next workout. We'd recommend the Align Premium Yoga Mat (1631-55).
Sweat can act as a vehicle for viruses or bacteria, but the right gear can help make your workout safer (and more comfortable). Some layers – like our Taza Knit Quarter-Zip (TM17810/TM97810) – are moisture-wicking and have an anti-microbial finish to help keep you cool and comfy.
Staying hydrated is critical for the body to run its systems optimally and efficiently. Dehydration can affect sleep and energy levels, which may ultimately result in a weakened immune system. Drinking at least 64 ounces of water a day is a great way to stay healthy. A reusable water bottle, like the CamelBak Chute® Mag 32oz., (1627-08) can help you stay hydrated AND reduce waste. It's a win-win.
Stretching after a workout is important. It improves blood flow, prevents injury, and will save you a lot of soreness tomorrow. Foam rollers – like the Everlast Foam Roller and Sports Sling (1907-54) – are great tools to help make the most of your post-workout stretches and provide some relief to those hamstrings.
Did you know music can improve exercise performance by delaying fatigue and even increase strength? It's also pretty good at keeping you entertained while you dig deep for that last rep. Music has so many applications inside and outside of the home, it's wise to invest in a good Bluetooth speaker. Might we recommend the Vale Wifi Speaker with Amazon Alexa (7198-47).
