A comprehensive strength training routine means you’ll need certain types of weights for certain exercises – so take a look at our fantastic range of weight lifting bars. For compound exercises such as the squat and the deadlift, a barbell is the way to go. Check out our sets with plate weights included so you can gradually increase the amount you’re lifting as your strength improves. We’ve got you covered with curl bars too – or how about a set of dumbbells so you can work on those biceps and shoulders?
It goes without saying that weight lifting puts the body under strain – but a gym belt will give you the support and protection you need while you’re pumping iron. Be sure to check out our weight lifting gloves as well. These will enhance your grip on the bar and distribute pressure more evenly – so you’ll even be able to lift that little bit heavier.
Having a home gym is the ideal way to invest in your health and fitness while avoiding expensive monthly gym payments. And when it comes to what you’ll need to get started, a weight bench should be right at the top of your list. It’s a good idea to opt for a foldable style so you can adjust the position to suit different exercises.
Why not go for a set of kettlebells as well? These are ultra-versatile and they’re a great way to take those squats to the next level if you’re not quite ready for a barbell yet. Don’t forget to check out our heart rate monitors too.
