In the new year, we all are trying to be healthier and stronger than the years before. So you know what that means? An updated workout routine! And with updated workout routines comes new workout stuff to buy. In reality, you don’t need to buy new things just because you are starting a new era of working out and training your body. However, if you are someone who enjoys the ‘extra’ things in life then this blog post is just for you. Here are some workout equipment that could be considered too extra for the average person, but will surely take your journey to the next level.
After your workout is just as important as your workout itself. When you do some intense exercises or training, your muscles will surely be screaming at you in pain. Soreness is normal after a good workout, but it shouldn’t remain there for days at a time afterwards. A good way to help your body relax and help your muscles get repaired so you will feel better for your next workout is by taking an ice bath. This is why many people decide to purchase icetubs for themselves. You don’t necessarily need to have this, but if you want to be extra, go for it!
This is similar to the ice bath in terms of muscle recovery after a good workout. Thanks to the heat in a sauna, your blood vessels open up and help relax your muscles. Using a sauna in combination with an ice bath will change your fitness journey completely for the better. However, this depends on what exactly you want or need from your fitness journey. If you are not looking to lose weight, then having the ice bath and sauna combo would not be needed.
A Rowing Machine
This low impact workout machine is always a fun time when you go to the gym. However, when it comes to having this machine in your home gym, it’s really not that necessary. Though, of course, it is a great way to workout multiple areas of your body at once. And having a full body workout routine at least once a week if you don’t do hardcore training can be very beneficial. It is quite an ‘extra’ purchase, and that’s what this blog post is all about.
