What is the best headphone for working out?

Top workout headphones It’s a question I get a lot in the gym when training: “Do you know what the best headphones are to workout with?” A question that may seem easy at first, but it can actually be quite complicated. The reason being: I’ve got a eczema in my ears which makes it hard to but earbuds in when working out. It makes the condition worse, so I’m forced to look at other headphones. This usually means that over-ear headphones are the best choice for me. However, when hanging upside down and doing dynamic exercises, is that even possible? It’s something I struggled with a lot. The music in the gym is oftentimes not that good. A bit of top 40 and music you can sleep to from time to times; not very motivating. It’s quite frustrating if you ask me, but they have to account for everyone in the gym, from teenagers to elderly. Unless you train in a hardcore gym or a crossfit box, you have to deal with this. Solution: Get some good headphones for your workout. So here is a list I’ve created from personal experience. Now I know not many people have an ear condition like me, so in-ear headphones might be the best solution for you while I prefer over-ears. Bluetooth vs wired headphones I always prefer Bluetooth headphones when working out....

The Official ‘How To Calisthenics’ Guide

In this ‘How To Calisthenics’ article I will explain the fundamentals of calisthenics. When it comes to this type of training there is a lot of overwhelm and not much information out there available yet. If you are a beginner it is hard to know where you should start and what you should do. This ‘how to calisthenics’ article tries to clear things up for you regarding calisthenics and the fundamentals you need to know. Let’s start with the basics Definition “Gymnastic exercises to achieve bodily fitness and grace of movement” The word calisthenics originate from the Latin words: ‘kallos’, which means ‘beauty’ and ‘sthenos’, which means ‘strength’. Calisthenics is a form of physical training consisting of several exercises, which are often rhythmical movements. These movements are intended to increase body strength and flexibility using only one’s body weight for resistance. The type of calisthenics done today is without a doubt the elite of gymnastics. I have not yet heard of another athlete that is stronger, more agile, more flexible, more powerful, or more mobile than these. The interesting thing about gymnastics is that their strength can almost be seen as a by- product because they normally only train for their event or discipline and not for the sake of being strong as heck. Most gymnast train hours and hours a week which is not for the person who...
