How to Choose the Right Types of Weights for You

WHAT TYPE OF WEIGHTS SHOULD I USE?

There are a lot of types of weights on the market, and each type works best for specific exercises and training plans. Consider the workouts you would prefer and the outcomes you’re looking for to help decide which is best for you.

HOW MUCH WEIGHT SHOULD I BE LIFTING?

No matter what style of weight you choose, the weight you use is important. You should choose a weight that you can easily handle to accomplish earlier reps but makes you work for it at the end of the set. Never choose so much that you strain yourself; it’s always better to add more reps if you’re not sure than it is to add too much weight. If you’re not sure, start slightly lighter than you think you might need and work your way up from there. Slow and steady progress is the safe and healthy way to go.

Dumbbells

Dumbbells are one-handed weights that are typically fixed weights with the mass evenly distributed on both sides. These are the most common weights and are great for both beginner and more experienced weightlifters.

Dumbbells are great for:

Good for overhead presses

Ideal for lots of reps with lower weight

Targeted cardio movements

Unilateral work

Increasing range of motion

Barbells

Barbells are wide two-handed weights that are typically made with a straight bar and bumper plates, adjustable weights that can be clamped on the end. Standard Olympic barbells, which are the most common, weigh 45 lbs before additional plates are added. The stability of the loads allows you to work with heavier weights than other methods. For safety reasons, we always recommend barbell clips for all our products. Our barbell clips keep your bumper plates from falling off your barbell and diminishes any rattling.

Barbells are great for:

Work on maximum load for your muscles

Increasing muscle gains

Kettlebells

Kettlebells are a cast-iron ball-shaped weight with the center of mass below a handle that can accommodate two hands.

Kettlebells are great for:

Dynamic power-based exercises

Full-body cardio movements

Flow patterns

Sandbags

Sandbags are precisely that – weighted sandbags without any bar or handle used for basic “lift and carry” exercises. The instability of sandbags increases the challenge of lifting, while the simplicity of the design makes them useful for overcoming the learning curve of weightlifting. You typically use less weight for a sandbag than other types of lifting equipment.

Sandbags are great for:

Building strength and endurance

Strength training for various sports
