Essentials for a gym bag
 
What are the essentials for a gym bag? What do you take with you? Just starting out and I always want to be prepared.

Bottle with Water
Shaker with protein powder
Lifting straps
Phone - has a camera on it so I can video my lifts
Change of clothes

If the social club I belonged to didn't hate me so much already, I would bring chalk as well, but the sound of plates hitting the floor when I deadlift already has their teeth on edge.

I always forget about that. Keeping a record of what you did and how you felt and other variables will over time help you learn a lot about yourself and what works best for you.

I figured as much. It's such a given that you keep a journal that most people forget to mention it.

I hate showering at my gym so I don't take much. A shaker, a notebook and pen, a towel, straps and a belt.
