Due to recent events, many stores are experiencing a shortage of certain products. Be aware that many retailers may currently be out of stock, have longer shipping times than usual or be charging above-average prices. Remember that stockpiling items isn’t actually necessary right now and that over-buying can leave others vulnerable.

The World Health Organization recommends that masks be worn in public places where social distancing is not possible.

While there are no set guidelines on the best kind of face mask for working out, we do recommend going for one that’s 100% cotton instead of opting for an N95 mask. The lightweight cotton will keep you covered, while still allowing you to breathe easier.

It’s also super easy to wash cotton masks, which is especially helpful if you’re sweating. Keep on scrolling to see where you can buy one online.

Is it safe to exercise with a face mask on?

Dr Lindsay Bottoms is a Reader in Exercise and Health Physiology at the University of Hertfordshire. She is also currently the Deputy Head of the Centre for Research in Psychology and Sports Science.

Exercise invariably leads to faster and harder breaths, so wearing a mask during exercise places a further strain on airflow. At low to moderate-intensity exercise, effort will feel slightly harder than normal with a mask, but you can still walk comfortably. The challenge appears to be more during heavy exercise (say, rugby or football) taking in air at rates of about 40-100 litres per minute.”

So, it does depend on your training style. We recommend consulting your doctor, especially if you have any underlying health conditions that could further inhibit performance.


How do you wash a reusable face mask?

Exercising in a face mask means you’re going to need to wash it a lot sooner than if you weren’t exercising. To find the best way to do so, we recommend checking the product description on the site you bought it from.
