The main thing about using a wrestling mat is safety, when buying a mat you will have to buy the right one depending on what you are using it for. Most mats are easy to move around, they come in many different sizes and thickness. A wrestling mat should be at least 1 inch to 1.5 inches to help prevent injury from when your body hits the floor. Make sure it is filled with PVC rubber nitrile foam. This foam will help cushion the impact.
Gym mats are used by many people from the Olympic gymnastic team to small children.
Preschool, elementary schools, daycare centers, and head start programs all use gym mats for the toddler. Most schools will use a poly-foam filled mat that is about 4 inches thick to help the blow if a toddler was to fall. If you are using the mat for at home, the most popular are the ones that are 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick. Always make sure you choose a mat that will not slip on the floor. No matter if you are going to use a mat for wrestling or gymnastics, check with a professional to make sure you are using the right one.
A wrestling mat can be used in a similar way to a gym mat – it is very good for doing a range of exercises designed to help you get fit. Rolls, tumbles, splits and grapples with friends are all great ways to get the heartbeat racing, and to burn a huge amount of calories. For those who have podiatry issues, one of these mats will not hurt your feet in any way, as they are designed to have a significant amount of support and comfort for those using them. Why not grab a wresting mat or a gym mat today, and start getting in shape?
