If you are serious about lifting weights, you need to invest in the right gear to help you along the way. That’s right – a gym membership and protein powder isn’t enough! To get the most out of your workouts, you’re going to need some help.
Lifting gear helps you make the most out of your workouts and take them even higher. You shouldn’t be entering the gym without a bag full of equipment!
Here’s some of the best workout accessories from Olimp Sport. You can check them out here https://olimpsport.com/uk/
A weightlifting belt is a must for any serious bodybuilder for a few reasons. Firstly, they help you to maintain the right form during exercises – and maintaining correct form can stop you from injuring yourself and make your workouts more effective at shaping your body.
Secondly, a weightlifting belt helps keep your core tight during an exercise – this can help you lift heavier weights.
Training Hooks and Gloves
You can actually lift 5-10 lbs heavier than you think you can if you use training hooks and gloves. That’s because your grip gives out long before your muscles do – and wearing training hooks and gloves improves your grip strength.
Wearing these nifty gloves allows you to eliminate using secondary muscles in an exercise. You just focus on the muscles you are working out, rather than those involved in grip!
Wrist wraps are also very important – you’ll see all professional bodybuilders using them. They’re used in pushing movement exercises, like the bench press, to provide stability and support to your wrists. They also let you lift heavier weights!
Just be careful not to tie them too low or too high – both of which can reduce their effectiveness. Tie them just to cover your wrist joint, creating support and preventing over extension.
Meal Prep Bag
Working out is only half of bodybuilding – the other half is eating right!
Our handy meal prep bag lets you fit four meal prep containers in PP fibre and two water bottles or shakers. They’re great for refuelling on the go and means you can take your bodybuilding meals anywhere you need to go!
The food boxes are premium quality, multifunction cooling bags with no toxins. This means you’ll never have to eat the toxins released into regular plastic boxes!
It’s up to you whether you want to opt for shorts, leggings, crop tops or tanks – we’ve got you covered no matter what you choose. For women, our OLIMP CREW sportswear is breathable, durable and fashionable. Choose from sports bras, shorts and tracksuits. We offer a variety of high waisted leggings for women, too.
For men, check out our OLIMP CREW tracksuits, and a variety of vest tops to keep you cool whilst working out – and show off your muscles!
Working out without the right gear is a recipe for failure – make sure you’re prepared for your next workout and have a bag full of weightlifting belts, gloves, hooks and wraps, your meals prepped and protein shakes prepared, and the best sporting clothing!
