Five Essential Tools for a Great Home Workout
- by amino VITAL
When it comes to working out, we all would love to have the perfect gym experience. However, for some of us, that is not a viable option. An alternative is cranking up the home workout to eleven and making sure you have the perfect routine set in place. A great home workout is easy to accomplish, however you need the right tools. That’s why we’ve laid out five great pieces of equipment or other tools that you can use for the best home workout you’ve ever had.
aminoVITAL’s Amino Acid Supplements
Whether it’s before, during, or after a workout, aminoVITAL’s Action (for before and during) and Rapid Recovery (for after) packs are a must-have, whether you’re working out daily, or just a couple of times a week. Both the Action and Rapid Recovery packs have tons of BCAAs that are key in replenishing your body during and after your workout. They also help to jumpstart the healing process for your muscle fibers, so you can come back better and stronger for your next workout without all the muscle soreness. With aminoVITAL, you’ll be ready to take on whatever challenges your workout has for you, whether that’s in the gym or at home.
Jumping rope is an excellent workout for anyone for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s an excellent cardio workout that works out your entire body in the process. Because it’s a high-intensity type of workout, as well, it’s a great option for those that are looking to lose weight with their workout process. It’s also a lower-impact cardio workout than running is, which means there will be less wear and tear on your body in the process. If you’ve never considered working out with a jump rope, it could be a great option for an at-home cardio workout.
Reusable Insulated Water Bottle
Even if you are staying in the comfort of your own home, an insulated reusable water bottle is a must for anyone looking to regularly work out. The benefit of the insulation is simple -- while you’re sweating, you’ll be able to cool down thanks to the high-quality insulation within our water bottle of choice courtesy of aminoVITAL. We don’t just recommend a reusable water bottle to keep your drinks chilled, we also think it’s a great way to be eco-friendly and to stay mindful of our impact on the environment. Wherever you are doing your workouts, a reusable water bottle is always the way to go.
Resistance bands are an excellent alternative to weight training for a myriad of reasons. They allow you to continue your strength training, but they also exert less force on your joints, which means there is less of a chance for injury for you. We love resistance bands because they are super versatile and allow you the opportunity to do a ton of different exercises and focus on several different muscle groups with just one piece of equipment. They are cheap, easy to use, and can even help with not just your strength but also your flexibility and mobility. These are a must-have for any successful home gym!
Non-Slip Yoga Mat
Rounding out our list of five essential tools for your next great home workout is a high-quality, non-slip yoga mat. We are huge advocates for the incorporation of yoga into anyone’s workout routine -- especially a home workout. Yoga is great for flexibility and building strength while toning muscle. To do yoga well, you need a yoga mat that isn’t going to slip and slide on the floor while you attempt to do poses safely. Getting a non-slip mat will keep you safe and is definitely worth the investment, just as the rest of these five essentials for your home gym are!
