I don’t know you guys but for me having my fitness gear with me every time I am working out is essential, not only to boost the mood but I find myself to have mentally raise of energy as well, so what I bring with me?
Yes, my iPhone need to be always with me! I do all sort of things with it, listen to music, replying the messages and take a selfie for a later upload on my Instagram page.
Also, I like to watch YouTube videos during the cardio time.
I like to track my work out and make sure to rest just enough between one set and the other, there are millions of Apps out there but I use the native Apple Watch App for me is enough and I have my consumed calories and exercise time all there in one screen.
Haha, by now I guess you guys have understood and got the feeling that I am a so-called Apple guy. What I do with my AirPods, well all that is related to the sound system of my phone.
Back in the day, I wrote a post on this and how much is essential the hydration full post is here. Especially when I am at the gym I make sure to be fully hydrated, did you know that if you are not hydrated the level of energy will decrease? I use to dilute some BCAA in my water too to give a bit of flavor and boost the workout.
I have tried in the past to lift the weight without gloves but for me is not the same and I cannot do it. Not only I feel uncomfortable but also the grip to the weights is different and I don’t like the feeling. So gloves are a MUST
I have written already on this, and you can find the full post here but overall having a Fitness Journal will help you to track the progress and make gains.
This is my list and I really would love to listen to what is essential for you to bring along to the gym and why.
