Besides aluminum free mens deodorant, there’s a bunch of awesome fitness gifts that men are dying to add to their home gym. Here’s 10 of the best ones around.
Functional fitness is here to stay. Kettlebells are an all in one fitness gift where with one piece of equipment you can do over hundreds of exercises. A good buying strategy is to buy one heave kettlebell and one lighter one that is about half the weight of the heavy one.
Battle ropes are basically the ropes that the US Navy uses to tie down air craft carriers to a dock and have been repurposed as a piece of exercise equipment (not kidding). They are great because they work strength, but they are an amazing cardio workout as well. They have became popular with many men becuase the choice way to use them is to slam them on the ground, which ends up being a great stress reliever.
This is an unconventional piece of exercise equipment to say the least. You’ll probably be one of the only one on the block to have one because they’re so rare to find. The center of the Surge is completely hollow, and the user adds water to the unit to increase the resistance. People love it because the water inside the Surge moves around and it forces you to use extra muscles to balance it out. Men love it because it resembles a lot of exercises that you might see on a World’s Strongest Man competition.
Anyone who has ever tried to last 3 minutes in a boxing ring can tell you that it takes incredible strength and cardio to last 1 round. Boxing is one of those sports that is as old as time and not likely to disappear anytime soon. As long as you have a place to hang it up, at just over 70 bucks a solid heavy bag is a brilliant health investment.
A sadistic cousin of the kettlebell, the iron club is the next level up. Anyone who is looking to build incredible shoulder strength and improve coordination should add these to their home gym. Start off with lighter ones because many of the movements are complex and take a few workouts to master them.
There’s nothing worse than getting your headphones caught in the way during the middle of a lift. You have 2 choices, either you keep going and risk ripping the headphones from your head or you stop dead in your tracks to move your headphones and loose your concentration. Skip the headphone dance with a nice pair of bluetooth headphone so you can focus more on your workout and less on distractions.
Want to feel like a million bucks? Walk into the gym with a fresh new gym bag. Want to feel like a dufus? Get your sweaty gym clothes all over the Peterson file. Having a gym bag that has a compartment for all your shower stuff, your shoes, and your fresh clothes will be a game changer for a guys gym game.
Small… light weight… total body. Need any more reasons that every guy needs a jumprope?
Lutennant Dan said it best ” There is one item of G.I. gear that can be the difference between a live grunt and a dead grunt. Socks”. A high quality pair makes all the difference during an intense cardio workout.
Really want to take your gym game to the next level? Staying fresh smelling for your fellow gym goers is gym etiquette 101. But take care of yourself by making sure that you’re not putting on deodorant that is not poisoning you. Reduce your exposure to parabens and other testosterone robbing chemical compounds with Uncle Jack’s all natural deodorant.
