This is starting to get extremely taxing… writing about an exercise mat. Youâ€™d think itâ€™d be much easier when you are thinking and talking about them 9 hours out of your day, but itâ€™s not like that at all. Thereâ€™s a literal writing block that happens when I try to summon the Greek God of workout mats to give me guidance: Hades. Lord Hades, I beseech you to grant me guidance on this day to fulfill my spiritual quest of le blog. Please grant me the strength…!
Too much strength! Now Iâ€™ve got back spams… great… On the plus side, though, I know that the trick to any mild muscular ailment is a hot bath and a good stretch are essential for someone as vertically endowed as myself to find pain relief from muscular pain (or weekly blogâ€™s writerâ€™s block). Which is why Iâ€™m happy to have access to rolls of our 3/8â€ SoftFoot stretching mats. Our SoftFoot Pilates Mat is the ideal mat for pilates exercises. It provides the extra cushion your body needs when working out on the ground. These fitness mats are comfortable, donâ€™t have any shocking odors or outgas like some other PVC based mats. Lord Hades would be pleased by this development.
My trainer put me through a rigorous regiment twice a week.Â Embarking on new vegetarian diet means I have to watch what I eat even more.Â While at the gym this past weekend, I noticed that when it comes to doing planks, everyone’s got a very different idea of what is comfortable on the ground.Â For those not familiar, a plank is a very simple yet very effective form of core training.Â You basically get down on the floor, back straight, and lift your body off the floor with your forearms on the floor.Â The idea is you use your elbows and toes to anchor your body while your core (lower back and abdomen) support your body.Â A minute of this can get pretty intense pretty fast.
