And we list the best fitness accessories at the bottom of this page!
You have iPods, Apps, activity trackers, smart watches, smart scales, wireless headphones, and much more. With that being said however, when it comes to fitness, sometimes simplicity is the key to success. For many decades now, there have been a wide range of fitness accessories that have remained largely unchanged, which is testament to the saying that ‘ if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. We all have our favorite fitness accessories for working out, but there are probably a selection of these health and fitness accessories that you simply aren’t prioritizing. Here’s a look at some of the most common examples, and why you may wish to change this and use these to your advantage.
Weight Lifting Gloves
If your hands hurt when you lift weights, and if you find it tough to keep your grip as a result, a set of weight lifting gloves will prove incredibly useful. These gloves help prevent calluses, they improve and enhance grip strength on certain exercises, and above all else, they help to prevent you from experiencing pain in your hands as you lift weights.
Weight Lifting Belts
A fitness workout belt is intended to help promote good posture and form whilst exercising to support the back, and to help prevent abdominal injuries such as a hernia. Now, when working out you don’t always need a weight lifting belt. You want your core to be engaged when lifting weights so for the most part the weight lifting belt is best used when you are performing one or two rep maxes. When you load up so much weight that you can only perform one rep, form is often times sacrificed and risk of injury goes way up.
For those of you who aren’t blessed with the grip strength of a mechanical vice, this can sometimes result in a great deal of frustration when you workout. There are many exercises, where your form, and indeed the weight itself, is not an issue at all, yet you sadly will find your grip strength failing before you have time to really fatigue the muscle group you’re intending on working. In these instances, a set of lifting straps are perfect, as they will help to ensure that the bar or handle, remains firmly in your grip at all times during the exercise, allowing you to get more from your training session.
