Beat the Haze

Keep Fit Despite The Haze with MR.DIY

The haze has reduced but some unhealthy particles may still linger.  To those that loves exercising or staying active, that doesn’t mean we should stop our regular exercise or workout. The reason why it’s not encouraged to exercise outdoors during the haze is because the activities make us breathe deeply, hence we take in pollutants deep into our lungs. Don’t let the haze keep you from exercising, a good solution is to simply exercise at home. MR.DIY offers a variety of fitness equipment to make that possible for you.


Foam Jump Rope

9087298 – RM6.80

Jumping rope is good exercise and lots of fun. You can burn 135 calories in just 10 minutes with the jump rope workout and will also sculpt your shoulders, chest, arms, and legs. It’s great for all fitness and ability levels. It fits in with all training goals – whether it be fat loss, endurance, strength, or performance.

Improved cardio: jumping rope can raise your heart rate two to three times faster than other exercises and offer the same aerobic building benefits as running with less impact on the joints.

Improved mental sharpness:  jumping rope helps with the development of the left and right hemispheres of your brain, which further enhances spatial awareness, improves reading skills, increases memory and makes you more mentally alert.

The fun factor: jumping rope is a fun way to achieve your fitness goals. It’s fun to be able to take it on the road and do your workouts anytime, anywhere. It’s also fun to share with a partner.


LINEUP Fitness Push Up Bar

9086964 - RM21.60

Pushups help tone and develop lean and strong muscles as they work both upper and lower body muscles. With regular practice, these exercises will help you maintain good stamina, balance and health. There is a reason why push-ups are used by both athletes and military personnel…No other exercise uses your body weight as effectively as this workout.

With a bar, the wrists are kept in a neutral position, stabilized by the forearms. This also means your forearms get more of a workout than with regular push-ups. The added distance from the ground gives you more room to push up from.


Yoga Strap Sling

9089524 – RM7.90

Love yoga? It’s a great indoor exercise activity and perfect for this hazy weather. Why not add this accessory to your yoga gear collection? Yoga straps are useful for carrying your yoga mat, and it can also help you with your yoga practice. No matter what your level of experience is with yoga, a strap can provide useful help on support, alignment, and posture.

These stretchy bands are a fantastic addition to your stretching routine, especially if you lack flexibility and mobility. A yoga strap can enable you to deepen the stretch as you gently move the band either away or towards your body. Just remember not to pull your way into postures with force! Always listen to your body.

LINEUP Soft Expander

9087149 - RM7.08

Working out indoors can also be cost-effective with our Soft Expander. They are flexible and durable resistance bands made of rubber that can be added to existing exercises to add additional resistance. This added resistance helps strengthen your muscles and pushes you to work a little bit harder.

You can save on storage space and exercise on the road, but in this case, it’s a great exercise equipment to use at home while you escape from the haze. The pulling motion helps your body develop stability and balance, as you lead resistance movements against gravity.
