Gym Bag Essentials

Items you need in your gym bag!!

RATE:  
 

We’ve all been there—you get to the gym ready to sweat only to find out that you’ve forgotten something that’s essential to your workout. Luckily most gyms have got you cover however for a serious cost.

To avoid these mishaps and make it even easier to get to the gym, follow this easy cheat sheet of what you should always have stashed in your gym bag. It'll save you during those rough early mornings when you only have a minute to pull it together.

Shaker Bottle:

A gym bag isn't complete unless it contains a quality shaker. You can use it for your all of your refreshment needs. It can hold your pre- and intra-workout supplements, water, or shake up your post-workout protein/carb combo. Be sure to grab a good shaker bottle so you end up with a protein that's easy to drink instead of some nasty, clumpy mixture you have to choke down.

Quality Workout Clothes

Without good training clothes, your workout is probably going to be less than satisfactory. So, if you hit the gym after work, remember to pack some breathable, well-fitted clothing. There's nothing worse than unpacking your gym bag in the locker room and realising you've forgotten shorts!

It's also important to remember fit over fashion. Don't waste time worrying about your gym attire—pulling up or tugging down your clothes while you work out is annoying. Your butt might look great in those tight pants, but those low squats are going to be problematic. Keep the moon outside, buddy. Checkout the fantastic range from LA Muslce here.


Face Wipes:

Give your face a good swipe before and after you sweat to help fight breakouts and to keep pores clean.

Dry Shampoo:

No shower at your gym? No problem! Easily make the transition from your workout to the day ahead with a few sprays of dry shampoo to freshen up your hair.

Towel:

Sweat in your eyes is totally frustrating. Slippery machines are always annoying and dirty. So make sure to eliminate this problem by carrying a towel with you around the gym so you can avoid making the same mistake as others.

Baby Wipes + Deodorant: The secret dream team for freshening up on the fly. Wipe down any particularly sweaty areas and reapply deodorant to prevent being stinky.

Pair of Socks: Trying to workout without socks is never pretty. Stash a spare pair to prevent any mishaps; especially during the summer months where you’re likely to sweat more.

Music

Most people find music incredibly motivating, but it has to be your music. Your personal selection will deliver better results than the "Call Me Maybe" crap they play at the gym. Use your phone or an Mp3 player, and pack some headphones.

Good pair of trainers

If you're an advanced lifter, you may prefer lifting shoes to tradional cross-trainers or running shoes. Whatever choice you make, make sure it provides the support you need for the type of training you will do. Box Jumps or running in sandals would turn out even worse than it would look.

Workout Log

A workout log is absolutely essential to consistent progress. Use your workout journal to record sets, reps, weights, and rest. You need to know how much you lifted in past workouts to lift more in future workouts. A gym log is an essential tool for anyone trying to build their best self. Be sure to track every session!

A reliable fitness tracker

It's always good to track your fitness whilst working out and how you are progressing in the gym. To improve your general fitness you need to bettering your workouts and what better way to keep on track then a fitness tracker?

Gloves

Prevent getting blisters or marks on your hands by wearing a good pair of gym gloves. Gloves will also help you grip the equipment better to give help with your working sets.

Weight lifting belt

Injury is always likely when lifting with heavy weights. Wear a belt to prevent this from occurring and giving your back better support during weight training.


A lock to store your gym bag

While many gyms have lockers with built-in locks, having your own lock can't hurt. It's always good to keep your stuff safe whilst working out.
