A lot of you have asked what specific equipment, supplements, etc I use. I’ve tried many products over the years and these are the ones I would recommend.
For those of you short on space and cash (what student isn’t?), adjustable dumbbell sets are a great compromise. I’ve tried a few and these are my favorite. Easy to swap out, good grips, and they look pretty cool.
Heavy Duty PRO Lifting Hooks
After you’ve been lifting for a while, your hands become your weakest points, limiting how much weight you can work with. These hooks take a lot of the strain off of your hands to allow you to hit that new PR on deadlifts.
I like these over other hooks and straps because they’re comfortable and don’t slip around when I sweat.
TRX Suspension Trainer
These TRX systems are great whether you travel a lot or, like me, don’t want to risk your security deposit by drilling holes in your apartment. You can easily get a full workout at home with a set of these.
Fitbit Blaze Fitness Tracker
I don’t have to worry about sweating in it, I can make sure my heart rate stays up during my workouts, and they battery lasts for days.
It even knows when I start a workout so I don’t have to remember to manually track it.
Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein Powder
I’ve tried quite a few different brands but I keep coming back to ON. It’s delicious, effective, comes in a lot of flavors, and is easy on my wallet.
Whether you’re just getting started on your fitness journey or you’re a seasoned gym rat, I would recommend this protein powder to everyone.
