When you have a home gym, it needs to be functional and provide a safe and comfortable place for all types of exercise routines and workouts. When you perform certain types of exercise and stretching routines, your exercise mat needs to be the correct thickness to provide the right amount of support while still being comfortable.
Yoga mats are part of most people’s gym equipment and tend to serve as a one-size-fits-all workout mat, but a thick workout mat should be a part of every fitness enthusiast’s home gym or workout room.
Unlike yoga mats, thick mats provide extra cushioning and can be much more comfortable for people who have sensitive joints and are more prone to injuries. A thick exercise mat is also better for stretching and for those who are overcoming knee, back, and shoder, and other injuries.
