Physical activity has a huge impact on our health and well-being. Without even the smallest dose of exercise we are at greater risk of developing many diseases, including diabetes. Although on the surface it may seem that the popularity of home exercises is just a temporary fashion, there is definitely something more to it. 

Any type of workout, whether done at home or at the gym, can be effective. With a little knowledge we can create the perfect conditions in our home to exercise our muscles regularly and effectively. This is why we have prepared a list of essential equipment for home training.

  1. Exercise mat

Exercise mat is an example of a simple but very useful exercise device. Thanks to the mat, we can prevent unpleasant abrasions and insulate ourselves from the cold floor during training. Remember to pay attention to the thickness of the mat you choose. Only then will it provide us with the comfort of performing various exercises, also those in the lying position. It is important to find a mat that is also non-slip, so that you can safely perform any exercise.

  1. Resistance bands

Resistance bands are the type of equipment that takes up very little space, and can significantly expand the arsenal of exercises. They are one of the first accessories you should reach for when planning to exercise at home. Thanks to resistance bands, even the simplest squat becomes a real challenge. Putting them a little below your knees forces your gluteal muscles to work above average.

Dumbbells are one of the simplest yet one of the most versatile pieces of exercise equipment. Free weights allow you to perform extremely numerous variations and types of strength exercises, which allows you to train many muscle parts.
