Rosin for a slippery floor?
Rosin for a slippery floor?
11/15/12 7:51 AM
So I just finished INSANITY on the road (so in a bunch of hotel rooms) so I was dealing mostly with carpet or hotel gyms. Now I am back in my (very old) house, and am starting TurboFire. The wood in my living room floor is just a little slick, from doing various workouts in the past, as well as being old and worn. I'm not sure if installing rubber panelling is financially viable for me right now, (and I'm also renting the space, so it would probably be too much of an investment) and I've heard the cheaper interlocking squares break apart mid workout. I used to dance and we used rosin on the floor to make it less sticky. Would anyone on the AdStaff recommend this as an option? I'm just not sure I can really keep my intensity up to the level I want it without that fear of slipping.
Thanks!

I rent on wood floors too. I had the puzzle pieces and they came apart. I got a mat from sears for about $30 - it's the same as the puzzle mats but one big piece. And I put my 10lb weights on the corners to weight it down. The mat is wide enough that the weights are not a problem.

Or, you could get a rug over the wood floors. I do not know about resin and I was given strict instructions on touching the wood floors by my landlord.

(Beachbody has a plyo may but it's not wide enough for turbo fire)

good luck,
rachael
