Calling all girls who lift! If you’re fed up with suffering from scrapes and bruises when training with a barbell, the new sportswear brand Blue Elvin (blueelvin.com) has a solution. Created specifi cally for women, its debut collection features a Sports Bra, £85, Leggings, £120, and Shin Sleeves, £55, with integrated impact panels that intelligently strengthen when subjected to force to protect collarbones and shins, so you get all the empowerment from weightlifting without the discomfort.
● When lifting heavy weights, choose trainers with a solid, fl at sole to distribute weight evenly through the feet and increase stability.
● If you don’t like wearing gloves, use chalk to dry out the moisture on your hands, improve your grip and prevent blisters.
● Wearing a mouthguard protects your teeth from the grinding that can come from heavy pulling, pushing and squatting.
