Yoga mats are a must have for every fitness enthusiast. Although the name says “Yoga” mat, you can use these for every fitness exercise at home or in outdoor in the park at your favorite Spot.
You can do stretching, bodyweight exercises and of course yoga on them without standing or laying on the hard ground, but still having a stable and safe subfloor.
I am using them since the beginning of my fitness-passion and never got any problems witch my joints or my back.
Now I am going to present you my favorite and best yoga mats.
The TOPLUS yoga mat
This is one of my favorite mats (72 x 24 inch, 6mm thick) because of its special non-slip surface which prevents it from gliding while doing some more explosive exercise like jumping squats or push-ups with claps.
Its TPE material is also tear resistant and very durable. Additional it is also eco-friendly, since there are no PVC or metallic parts in it.
You will not have to worry about the hygienic of the mat, because it is waterproof so you can just wipe the sweat away after a hard training.
