Your Performance

Having the correct matting beneath you can serve many functions to your everyday workout lifestyle. Knowing that the flooring can take the impact you will be producing will allow you to hit your maximal lifts and drop them freely.

Lifts such as dumbbell press, squats, clean and jerk are better utilized when they can be dropped after the completion of each set.  Dropping them correctly can prevent injury and allow you to lift heavier weights.

The benefits of having the freedom to drop the weights at the end of your movement can reduce the risk of injury as the tension that it could take to lower the weight gradually could result in additional strain on muscles and joints especially, while you're fatigued.

It can also give you the confidence to attempt heavier lifts knowing that if you are not able to complete it, you can safely drop it with minimal adverse effects.

The gym matting, we provide offers a good level of stability and provides a comfortable setting for exercises that are done closer to the ground such as yoga, Pilates, or core stability. Without the correct cushioning on the floor, these exercises can cause serious discomfort to various parts of the body which could affect the way the movement is carried out.
