Having the right training shoe can definitely make a difference to your comfort, strength and efficiency when you are undertaking squats and deadlifts at the gym.
A recent trend, though, has many lifters adopting a ‘monkey see’ attitude towards footwear. This isn’t ideal if you’re looking to increase your own individual performance.
Within these collections, powerlifting and bodybuilding belts (commonly called weightlifting belts) have become crowd-favourites. Offering supportive benefits across the board, there’s plenty to love about these accessories.
But do they work and what are the advantages you can expect to gain from using them?
To all our loyal supporters - it is with great pride that we announce some new additions to our range of International Powerlifting Federation approved gear.
The decision to add more products to the IPF approved list was to support lifters around the globe, and to allow them to use our premium gear up on stage in competitions.
Activewear has not only become a wardrobe essential for gym junkies but has become a staple for the fashion-conscious.
With so many styles, options and brands to choose from today, it can easily become overwhelming to try and choose from the right workout gear that will actually enhance your workout and the items that will slow down your routine.
The industry has a myriad of accessories to assist exercise enthusiasts to achieve the best results.
For one, proper weightlifting calls for hard work, consistency and application of the principles of lifting - correct body posture, right application of gym techniques and the useful support to attain maximum power.
So you've spotted the ideal gym for your weightlifting, bodybuilding or powerlifting and acquired a supplement stack to help you to get the best out of your workouts. However, you have not invested in a pair of quality workout shoes.
Gym shoes are extremely important especially if you are regularly lifting weights. They come with a number of advantages, many of which you’ll notice as soon as you step into the training center for your usual workout.

Hello Team Iron!
We were going through the archives and found this gem. It's a video by our man, Dr. Layne Norton. Here Layne explains why the notion of 'I'll be happy when (insert goal) is reached. Why happiness and success is a state of being. You must enjoy the process and have passion for the process in order to maintain consistent happiness & success.
This rings so true for anything in life, whether relationships, personal or business goals. Enjoy the process, end the mentality of thinking you will only be happy once x or y occurs.
