Keep Working Out Simple with These Three!
Covid-19 doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, so why not get your sweat on at home? Luckily completing an at-home workout doesn’t have to seem like rocket science with the help of these 3 simple yet effective fitness equipment!
When someone says you need a yoga mat. You get a yoga mat. A yoga mat provides comfort on those harder surfaces like hardwood floors and can ease the pain when working on joints like your knees and back. Moving into poses or completing a core circuit on a squishy surface makes doing the exercises a lot more enjoyable! Speaking of hard surfaces, think about when you are working up a decent sweat, and the sweat drops begin to pool on your workout space. A yoga mat provides a level stickiness and grip which can help you avoid slipping or falling!
Yoga mats come in all different sizes and thicknesses. A typical yoga mat is 1/8 of an inch thick and doesn’t provide the extra padding like a ¼ inch thick mat. If you’re thinking about completing other workouts besides yoga the ¼ inch thick mat will better support your body.
