When you have to choose between staying at home to use your Xbox and heading out for a gym workout, we know how hard it is for gadget heads like you to unplug. Let us read full story
Keeping regular items in your gym bag can alleviate morning stress as you rush out the door to the office. A forgotten snack, hair elastic, or water bottle can easily derail a workout.
Make sure you are never without these gym bag essentials:
Hair ties / hat / bandana
Make sure you don’t go back to the office wearing your nasty sweaty workout socks. Put on a fresh pair. Make your mom proud.
Blisters are painful and can become infected. Prevent suffering by always having at least bandages and antibacterial ointment in your bag. Over the counter pain medication for headaches and muscle soreness is ideal to have on hand too, incase you overexert yourself.
Keep hair and sweat off that handsome face of yours.
A good recovery snack includes simple sugars for fast glycogen replacement, and protein for muscle repair. Try chocolate milk, a protein bar, a protein shake, or fruit with nut butter.
Bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.
Lotion, soap, and deodorant are must haves.
Make sure to have your yoga mat, lifting gloves, or cycling shoes so that you are prepared for your class.
