They provide relief for tight muscles and knots, and can be used to loosen you up before a work out or cool your muscles down after a hard training session.
Fitness watch/heart rate monitor
Do yourself a favour and pick up one of the latest pieces of fitness technology that is out there and available to you. Whether it’s one of the new watches that track all your progress, or just a simple heart rate monitor, seeing your progress and tracking how many calories you are burning during your workouts can help motivate you and keep tabs on what routines are better than others.
Those first couple months of the year are the hardest to get back into the gym and get back into your routine. Help yourself out my spending a bit more money on getting yourself a personal trainer. Your trainer will be able to show you the best methods for your training schedule, as well as motivate you to go to the gym and push yourself as far as you can actually go.
