Body by Polyurethane

Looking to show off a toned physique on the beach this summer? Polyurethane has your back — and your biceps and abs, too.

Not only is polyurethane found in exercise apparel and footwear, but it’s also found in many kinds of exercise equipment. For example, exercise mats made with a thin layer of polyurethane foam are great for supporting your knees and back when doing floor exercises, stretching or yoga.

Exercising is easier when you have a friend to motivate and work out with you. Tossing a medicine ball — filled with solid polyurethane — to a partner helps strengthen multiple muscle groups.

A cool-down routine helps ease your heart rate gradually and can help prevent injury. You can use polyurethane foam rollers to roll out and stretch your muscles after every workout.
