Home Gyms Need Gym Mats

Even Home Gyms Need Gym Mats

Training In Your Home Gym

These days a lot of training is done at home. Whilst professional gyms will always be part of the equation the need to train more has lead us to train more in a domestic environment. At the gym we have all sorts of protective equipment to keep us safe but what about at home. The truth is that even home gyms need gym mats. The question is what kind to they need.

Home Gyms Need Rubber Mats

If you are doing weight training at home then you definitely need Rubber Mats.  Doing heavy lifting can take its toll on your body so you want to make sure you have flooring which will reduce the fatigue. That is precisely what rubber mats do. They reduce the stress that is placed on your body which is something you need if you want to training longer.

It is not only your body that feels the stress when you are doing weight training. Your floor also feels the effect. If you have a nice concrete or timber floor you don’t want to be throwing your heavy weight on them. You need something do to come between and that is rubber mats. Rubber flooring of some sort is the only way to reduce the damage to your beloved floor.

Home Training and Gymnastics Mats

When it comes to gymnastic it is usually a pursuit for kids. I walk past the local gymnastic academy and it is packed with kids. There might be a few adults in the evening but not many. It is probably the reason why we get looks of parent buying gymnastic mats for their kids. To get good at gymnastics you need to train at home so you need something to train on.

Whilst the most popular choice is roll out gymnastics mats they are not the only ones in demand. People of have a smaller area might chose the foldable mats which are good for tumbling etc. Others how have a larger area to deck out might pick jigsaw mats. They come in different thicknesses which means they can be tailored to the impact level of the activity. Either way some form of gymnastics mats are essential.

All The Other Stuff We Do

The other reason even home gyms need gym mats is for all the other stuff we do at home. For those activities we simply need puzzle mats.  With puzzle mats you pretty much got everything else covered. There are lots of other thinks people do to keep fit. Every thing from cross-fit training to martial arts. For all those things puzzle mats are the ideal choice.

So there you have it. I said it before and I will say it again. If you want to train at home make sure you get yourself some gym mats. There is a mat for every occasion.

Interlocking Versus Non-Slip Bottom

Interlocking Versus Non-Slip Bottom

Interlocking Puzzle Mats Versus Non-Slip Bottom Tatami Mats

When it comes to decking out your gym it can sometimes be hard to decide which are the best. There are so many option out there that it can be confusing. Even when you nail it down to just two options, like puzzle mats and tatami mats, it still requires some thinking. Whilst opinions may vary regarding Interlocking Versus Non-Slip Bottom mats there are some truths that need to be considered before making a choice.

Interlocking Mats And Their Benefits

The two main options when buying gym mats is interlocking mats and non-interlocking mats. The main kind of interlocking mats is Puzzle Mats. With puzzle mats you have the advantage of the mats being able to interconnect with on another. This is great because once you lay you mats together you don’t have to worry about them coming apart.

When you are training there is nothing more annoying than having to stop and readjust your mats. Also you run the risk of getting you toe stuck between the mats which in itself can be dangerous. So having puzzle mats generally eliminates those issues. This is a great time saving feature which is why they are so popular.

What About Non-Slip Bottom Tatami Mats

Another great option in reducing the need for readjusting mats during training is having Tatami Mats.  With these mats you have a rubber non-slip bottom which helps prevent movement during training. Now if might not eliminate it entirely, depending on the surface below, but it will reduce it greatly.

It wasn’t the case that Tatami Mats always had a non-slip bottom. In the beginning that were just two sided mats like the ones you see in school gymnasiums. The invocation of putting the non-slip bottom on tatami mats came later. Now it is almost universal on these kinds of mats including MMA Mats.

So there you have it. Hopefully enough of your questions have been answered when making the choice between puzzle mats and tatami mats.

The amount of impact of your exercises can have a huge effect on how many calories you burn and how strong your bones are.

If you are interested in doing high impact training, you may want to consider the equipment used. Any move in HIT (High Impact Training) takes time and skill to learn well. Even professionals may still get it wrong infrequently. For this reason, you need crash mats to break your fall and keep you safe.

Judo movements will be more effective when done on crash mats. These mats are manufactured using synthetic rubber, EVA, anti-slippery, high-quality covers and high density soft core foam. Thus, crash mats will allow practitioners to practice throws and take-downs.

Day to day high impact training becomes smoother and effective, with less impact on bones and muscles. Younger bodies need a softer landing surface for takedowns.
