    Gym towels

    We all know how important it is to use a towel while exercising in the gym. Gym is a place where a lot of people are involved. Unfortunately, it’s also a place where germs and bacteria spread rapidly. In this connection it is necessary to be cautious and take care of yourself so as not to spread germs on your own and not to be in contact with other people’s germs.

    The first question that comes to mind when we are going to buy a towel to the gym, it is a question of the size of a towel.
    This question has no single answer. Everyone chooses for himself a towel of convenient size. Most often it is a towel in size 50×100. It is not too large, it is comfortable to wear in the room. This towel is ideal if you do not have a large body or use a towel to wipe the sweat from his face and body.

    It is worth paying attention to two nuances. First, it is not necessary to wipe your hands with a towel, which you wipe the sweat in the gym from the face and body. The hands are constantly in contact with the machines. If you wipe the face and hands with the same towel, you risk to pass the infection to your face and as a result pimples may appear on the face.

    Second, use a towel with tags on one side. That way you’ll always know which side is in contact with fitness machines and which one – with your body.

    The ideal option is to use a separate, small towel for hands.

    If you work most of the time at the exerciser or you are have a large body, pay attention to the large towels. For example 70×140 or 80×150. These towels are convenient to use because they cover most of the fitness equipment and your body is not in contact with the surface.
    The quality of the towels in the gym is usually the second question we ask ourselves. You have to understand what characteristics should have a towel at the gym.

    The towel should be one of high quality. After all, the towel will be washed after each visit to the gym. High quality towels withstand a lot of washings; thus they do not lose original color and form. Towels are usually made of high quality 100% Egyptian cotton.
    Pay attention to the temperature at which you can wash a towel. The temperature should be no lower than 60 degrees. At this temperature microbes and bacteria are killed.

    Towel has to absorb moisture well, to be soft and pleasant to the touch. With these demands towels made from 100% cotton cope at best. Furthermore towels from natural materials do not irritate the skin and do not cause allergy.

    The towel to the gym should cheer up, encourage energy and give cheerfulness. We recommend choosing a sports towel of bright colors and designs. That is yellow, green, red, bright green, deep blue color. The towel is now part of fitness to practice in the gym. Stylish towel can be a bright addition to your clothes for the gym. Agree, when you are happy with your appearance, your good mood and good mood is a guarantee of effective workout.

    For the first time, Audi took part in Lehmann daily marathon in 1999, but works on the open prototype began in 1997. Engineering part in the creation of the car Audi R8R, which was shown in 1998, was entrusted to engineer Tony Southgate and construction – to the company Dallara. The car was equipped with biturbocharged engine V8 3.6, from which they got 600 forces. The racing debut in 1999 at the 12-hour marathon of Sebring: two cars gained third and fifth place respectively. A ring on Sarthe in 1999 Audi R8R made even better: the third and fourth place. By the way, about the same time with the open one a closed prototype of Audi R8C has being designed. The chief engineer of the Racing Technologies Norfolk Elray Peter, who created the Bentley Speed 8 was in charge for the result. By the way, the two built R8C cars managed to take part only in the 24-hour race at Le Manev 1999. There were 29 th and 43 th place as the result.

    In 2000 racing Audi R8 saw the light – one of the most successful cars in the history of the race at Le Mans. Outdoor prototype won on the ring Sarthe five times: in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005. A competing American Le Mans Series – seven times! Can’t wait to see what was hidden under the composite body? At the heart of the machine lied a monocoque made of carbon fiber and aluminum honeycomb sheet. Suspension is double wishbone one type pushrod on loop and custom shock absorbers. At the base biturboeight’ 3.6 FSI (520-610 hp) was installed with the camber of the cylinders by 90 degrees, paired with a six-speed sequential gearbox Ricardo.

    By the way, in spite of a successful racing career Audi R8, a tragic accident was connected with it: because of the tire explosion during the test on the track Lauzitsring (EuroSpeedway Lausitz now) the former Formula 1 driver Michele Alboreto smashed to death.

    The new prototype Audi R10, which debuted in 2006 have been done by the Audi engineers together with specialists from the firm Dallara. And it was a real revolution: instead of a gasoline engine V8 3.6 FSI Germans placed within the base diesel V12 TDI volume of 5.5 liters. Engineering marvel (weight – 200 kg) sported twin turbochargers Garrett, has made 650 “horses” and 1100 Newton meters. Thrust transmitted to the rear wheels through a five-speed sequential gearbox S tronic, which was equipped with three-disk clutch carbon-fiber clutch Sandtler. Composite body length of 4650 mm, the carbon fiber monocoque, double wishbone suspension, Brembo brakes and forged wheels OZ – just such a vehicle with a curb weight of 925 kg won at Le Mans in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
