What sort of workouts should you wear your trainers for? Anything that involves a high impact move, because your trainers help to take out the impact of the move through the cushioning in the shoe, (as this absorbs the shock) as opposed to landing barefoot, which causes the impact to go through our joints. This is why I would always recommend that you use trainers for this sort of exercise.
However, if you are doing low impact moves with no jumps, then you can do this “trainer free” as you have no impact. Therefore it is safe to workout barefoot and this is one thing I really love about low impact workouts at home.
