The device is equipped with an on-board computer that indicates not only the distance traveled, but also the travel time, the sustained speed and the amount of calories that have been burned. In case the equipment do not understand it, it can also be useful to buy a heart rate monitor, so as to be sure of carrying out an impeccable workout from a cardiovascular point of view.
The rubber mat
Furthermore, the importance of rubber mat, which represents the basis - both in a metaphorical and literal sense - for a large number of exercises to be done without risking hurting the back or other parts of the body.

The barbell and the bench press

The discs are those that are used for dumbbells, that is to say the classic weights. The benches, on the other hand, they can be of different types: they are characterized by a backrest that can be reclined in different positions, and allow you to perform pushes or crosses with the dumbbells. The latter, in turn, are used for front and side lifts, with which the shoulders are trained, but also to stimulate the triceps and biceps.
