My 3 Gym Essentials To Have a Better Workout 

1) Proper Outfit

I always preach the importance of wearing clothes to the gym that are comfortable, and make you look good. If I wear a baggy tee that’s riding up and getting caught on things I’m setting myself up for a bad workout. See my post on Dressing for Success At The Gym. A proper outfit aids to your confidence, so I always make sure I’m ready with my favorite clothes & shoes!

2) Wireless Headphones

Whether you chose to use the chunkier style above or the smaller version below, I love wireless headphones!

I bought a pair of the smaller versions on Amazon for $20-30 and it was the best investment! No more chords/iphones flying or getting caught. You may not realize how much it happens, but if you pay attention for just one day you’ll immediately realize why you need these.

3) Water Bottle w/ BCAAs

I always have my water bottle filled with Cellucor BCAAs to promote recovery and help with my endurance throughout the workout. You can read more on why I drink BCAAs in my previous post but here’s a recap on it’s benefits:

  • stimulate the rate of protein synthesis
  • increase cell’s capacity for protein synthesis
  • reduce the rate of protein breakdown
  • produce a harder, longer workout by reducing the amount of tryptophan entering the brain, thus reducing the amount of serotonin

My favorite flavor is the watermelon (which tastes like a jolly rancher- SO good!) but there are others to choose from.

As a college student I’m always looking to save money, and I’ve done my research on prices for these supplements….I always buy them using my code because I know it’s the cheapest offer out there!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Perfect timing to see this post. I’ve been looking for a great pair of wireless headphones! I hate having wires everywhere. I’ll check out the ones on Amazon for sure.

    I like your post. I even drink the same BCAA as you. I started using cellucor when they first came out with C4 and M5. They make a quality product.
