An article on RTE explaining why some people have to wear bags at the gym.
The article states that bags are a necessary part of the gym, but the bag’s use is controversial and is not always recommended.
It also states that people with a pre-existing health problem are unlikely to need a bag, but that some people are worried about weight gain and the risk of injury from the bags, particularly those that do not have a seat belt.
In 2016, the US Preventive Services Task Force published a report entitled “Bag Use at the Gym.”
The report says that while bags are not the only piece of equipment people should be aware of, the majority of gym equipment should be treated as a necessary piece of exercise equipment.
It said:”Many people may not know that a bag is also required at the gyms, particularly at high-intensity interval training.
People may not realise that a shoulder harness or shoulder strap is also included in this equipment.
The body’s protective system is also being stretched to its limits during high-impact activity.”
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, the bag is a device that can be worn to protect the wearer from injury from impacts to the body.
“It is also worn to prevent injuries, such as those caused by falling objects, while also protecting the user from injury caused by high-risk situations such as the impact of an object or an athlete.”
The bag also provides the necessary balance for the user during high intensity interval training and other activities.
