How To Train Like A Summer Olympian
With 41 sports at the Rio 2016 Olympics this summer, there's something for everyone to watch...and train for! Spice up your workout and add new life to old routines with these five products perfect for training like an Olympian.
Roller skates add a retro twist to your workout. On the days that you're training for distance running, swap your sneakers for skates and get gliding! Running is one of the oldest Olympic sports, and cardio is a super important part of a balanced workout, so why not add a new form of cardio to the mix!
Give your workout some bounce! Trampoline evolved from a training tool to a sport on its own. This mini version is perfect for the rainy days when you don't want to totally skip out on training. This one can fit under your bed easily when you're not transforming your usual workout into a bouncing one!
Nothing can increase your flexibility quite like a good stretch. Channel your inner 2012 Olympics Women's Gymnastics Dream Team vibes and get to work! This set has three different bands to tailor your workout by intensity. They're great for strengthening and stretching your muscles—you'll be landing back handsprings gracefully in no time!
Add some oomph to your regular workout with some strength training. Weightlifting, an Olympic sport, tells a tale of power and finesse. We're not telling you to hit the bench press, but adding mini hand weights to a standard routine will get you a ticket to the gun show!
This do-it-all watch will keep your training on track. A waterproof one is a perfect addition to your bathing suit and swim cap so you can be in the know about distance and pace while hitting the pool for laps. This watch is also perfect for your on-land activities thanks to its built-in GPS!
