skating team reveal what to keep in a gym bag

Did you catch Nathan Chen’s record breaking figure skating performance? If you didn’t, he struck gold! He’s only 22 years of age out here taking home gold back to U.S soil, but how does he maintain his striking physique to compete in the greatest games of all time? Here’s the inside scoop.

People.com recently interviewed the U.S. figure skating team, including Chen, and revealed what to keep in a gym bag at all times.

Chen stated, “I always have mini bands, long bands, stuff like that. I have grip straps for lifts. I have a Powerade or just something to drink.”

We have more in store for you if you’re looking to break some lazy habits and get kicked into Nathan Chen gear. Head over to Amazon to get a bulk purchase of Powerade Variety Pack which includes twelve 20 ounce bottles to beat the heat and push through your rigorous workout.
