Dressing appropriately to do exercise and how to avoid an injury
If you are doing any form of exercise it is wise to find out how you can do this safely and what you should be wearing to avoid accidents and injuries. There is a reason that people don’t just wear their work clothes or pyjamas to work out, and this is because it can restrict movement and make it more likely that you will have an accident.
If you are going to be exercising regularly then you should probably get together a proper selection of workout clothing that you feel will offer you all of the protection that you need, and make you more comfortable whilst you exercise.
- Wear layers. If you are exercising outdoors, or even are starting off in a fairly cool room, your body temperature is likely to fluctuate as you work out. It is best to bring layers with you so that you can layer up as you begin, and strip down as you start to warm up. You can then put layers back on as you finish your workout.
- Wear the right footwear. Never attempt to work out in anything other than trainers designed for this purpose. Working out in footwear which is not designed for working out can cause you to have serious accidents, or cause permanent damage to your feet and legs.
- Ask about required equipment. Some sports and activities require you to wear specific safety equipment and you should be prepared to spend whatever you need to on these items in order to be safe. Not wearing the correct safety equipment could lead to serious injuries.
- Wear a helmet. This is almost the same as required equipment, but in solo sports such as cycling or climbing, you should always wear a helmet even if you don’t have anyone to tell you to. If there is a risk of head injury, you should never start your sport without wearing a helmet.
