5 must-haves in your wardrobe when you are bodybuilding

When it comes to bodybuilding, it is super important that you have the right equipment and bodybuilding gym wear to minimise injury and stress, and to enable you to achieve your fitness goals.

The basic principle of bodybuilding, of course, is to undergo strenuous exercise in order to strengthen and enlarge the body. 

The weights that you lift, however, don’t necessarily have to be the huge ones you might have seen on TV at the Olympics; the likes of dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells, weight plates and weighted balls can all be valid. If you have access to a gym, you will also have the option of using an adaptable machine. 

So, whatever skill level you might be at, at whatever part of your fitness journey, here are five items that you ought to have in your wardrobe as a bodybuilder. 

  1. Sturdy shoes

When lifting heavy weights, it is extremely important to have the right pair of shoes. The best shoes for bodybuilding have a flat bottom and are pretty solid. 

It is crucial to choose a pair of specialist trainers that support your ankles and give you a good grip on the mat. This will allow you to perform to your best ability throughout your workout. 

  1. A hoody and sweatpants

As with any other type of workout, you must make sure you warm up your muscles beforehand in order to avoid injuries. 

To get your blood pumping and break a sweat, start out in a hooded sweatshirt and some joggers.  Once your body is warmed up, you can remove your layers one by one.

  1. Loose-fitting clothing

Bodybuilding gym wear needs to restrict your body movements as little as possible. For this reason, you should consider loose-fitting or baggy clothing such as a baggy shirt or a basketball-style vest. This will create optimum conditions for your body to lift weights without anything getting in the way. 

  1. Quality gym wear

Low-quality active wear can be made from fabrics which irritate the skin. Gym clothes that aren’t breathable can also cause sweat rashes and itching. 

Therefore, when you are exercising regularly, your bodybuilding gym wear must be of a high quality and made especially for performance, as is the case with our apparel here at Hybryd. 

  1. Wrist straps

Once you are dressed, warmed up and ready to go, you can further help avoid lifting injuries by wearing wrist straps. Wrist supports are adjustable, suitable for any wrist, giving you the comfort and confidence that you can achieve your weightlifting goals safely. 

Whether you are only just beginning your weightlifting journey, or are a fully-fledged bodybuilder, you should make sure to grab these essentials before embarking on your next power workout.
