What's in my gym bag !!

Happy Workout Wednesday! My workout for the day started off with a 5Km walk in the morning followed by TIU Love your booty routine. I love getting my workout done immediately after waking up so that i do not need to worry about it the entire day.

I do most of my workouts at home. But on days when i get up late, i do workout at the gym at my workplace. I wanted to share some of my must have items that I keep in my gym bag at all times. I seriously couldn't live without most of these items!

1) Deodorant : 
Some people earn a reputation for body odour and I don’t want to belong to that club. As i am one of those who sweat a lot, i make it a must to always carry a deodorant in my gym bag. 

2) Hand Towel/Tissues :
It is a basic courtesy to carry tissues to the gym to wipe off your sweat. You do not want your sweat to be dripping on the gym equipment which will be used by someone else. 

3) Music Player:
I love listening to good tempo workout or an audio-book while in the gym. It gives me focus and good boost to keep going through the workout. 

4) Water bottle
This one is a must have for me. It is a basic rule to consume a sip of water every 10 to 20 minutes while doing high intensity workouts. If we can carry our own water bottle we are thanking out body by staying hydrated and also save time by making frequent trips to the water cooler.  

5) Hair ties- Though i have short hair, I make sure that my hair is nicely tied up while working out. The last thing i want while pushing through a workout is hair falling on my face and making me lose the flow. So i always make sure to carry some bands. 

6) Lip Balm/Chap-stick - Working out in a gym can leave your lips dry. A simple lip balm can solve this. w

7) Facewash:
After a tough workout , the pores of my skin open up, giving rise to acne. I carry a basic Garnier face-wash to wash my face to take off the sweat.

8) Fresh set of Inners :
For someone like me who drips fully of sweat after a workout, it becomes mandatory to change the inners immediately after workout for feeling good. There have been some days when i used to not get a fresh pair to gym and i would get red burning areas around my thighs due to sweat. So i always make sure to carry a fresh pair.
