What are free weights?Free weights are any type of resistance equipment that isn’t connected to a gym machine or device. They include dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells and other strength training tools that you can hold and use freely as you exercise.
Contrary to popular belief, free weights are not just for bodybuilders - anyone interested in getting fitter and stronger can benefit from using these tried-and-tested fitness essentials. If you’re looking to tone and strengthen your body, buying a weight set is a cost-effective way to get started!
Improved fitness and strengthHaving strong muscles makes it easier to perform everyday tasks, such as climbing stairs, playing sports or even lifting groceries. Strength training also helps counteract muscle loss that naturally happens as we age.
Better balance and coordinationStrength training has wonderful benefits for balance, posture and coordination. Some lower body exercises, such as lunges and weighted step-ups, actively challenge your balance, but you also want a strong core to prevent back pain and correct your posture.
Easy to use at homeMost free weights are simple and compact, making them ideal for at-home use. Even better, you don’t need a full dumbbell rack — all you need is a few pieces of equipment to start working out. Weight sets are especially handy for beginners learning the ins and outs.
How often should I do strength training?You should aim to do strength training at least twice or thrice a week as part of a bigger workout routine. This gives your muscles enough time to recover in between each session. While taking a rest day (or two) may seem counterintuitive, you want to take it easy for a while and give your muscles the chance to rebuild and grow back stronger.
You can still keep active on your rest day by taking a walk, going for a swim or working a different muscle group. Try your best to include both strength and cardio workouts in your weekly workout routine.
