All of us who have ever gone to the gym know how complicated it is to change the discs to do deadlifts or put on resistance bands to do assisted pull-ups. And we have found a video of the trainer and fitness influencer @rvbengarcia showing the main accessories you need to train.
Accessories that make your life much easier in the gym
1- “To begin with, this is a barbell jack. And it serves to raise the bar and load or unload it more comfortably and at will. As easy as you are seeing, without effort.”
2- “This is a special pin to do super series and change the weight faster on the machine. You just have to choose your first weight, do the repetitions and drop the plates to release it and you can continue with your next series and the guide weight of the machine itself. You can even put several and do giant descending supersets”.
3- “This is fluid magnesium and by applying very little to your hands and waiting just 5 seconds you will get an incredible grip for all the exercises in which you need a good grip and without leaving everything dirty as it usually happens with normal magnesium”.
4- “Finally, this is an arm blaster, an accessory with which you can do concentrated biceps curls wherever you want without the need for a bench. Either with dumbbells or with a bar.”
Roberto Cabezas is a specialist in fitness, CrossFit, bodybuilding, training material, nutrition and sports supplementation at Men’s Health Spain. Graduated in Journalism from the Faculty of Information Sciences, in Madrid, he has always liked sports. I played soccer, practiced karate, tennis and now I am passionate about paddle tennis and training in the gym. I firmly believe that leading a healthy life, eating well and exercising daily, is essential for both the body and our mental health. And I encourage you to combat stress with fitness training through exercise routines. One of my hobbies is buying food because I love eating, especially meat, but also fruit and healthy desserts. I am not missing my daily protein shake and to recommend, try the peanut butter with banana, this is one of many of the recommendations that you can find among the nutrition contents in which I write and deal with topics such as creatine, protein whey among others. Professionally, before joining the Hearst Magazines Healthy Unit, I spent almost 20 years at the magazines Teleindiscreta, TP and Supertele, from the same company, where I learned to be a journalist. Before I went through an economic consultant and a women’s website.
