The Workout Essentials – Dumbbells, Barbells, and Kettlebells
Walk into most modern gyms and training facilities these days, and you'll find row after row of shiny, chrome, single-purpose exercise machines, some of them so specialized that they work only one muscle or set of muscles. And many people get caught up in feeling as if they have to try the "next best thing" and work out on these shiny new machines. Meanwhile, over in the corner, sometimes unused, are sets of multi-purpose, multi-function equipment that would actually do more to increase their fitness and health than any of the shiny machines.
These "foot soldiers" of the workout equipment army are, in fact, the oldest and most "tried and true" – dumbbells, barbells, and kettlebells. Dumbbells, of course, are small weights connected with a short handle and designed to be lifted with one hand. Barbells have a longer bar and are designed to be lifted with both hands for standing presses or bench presses, or placed on the shoulders to add weight when performing squats. Kettlebells are like dumbbells – designed primarily for one-hand use – but look more like a traditional kettle, with a handle at the top. This design allows the person using the weight to swing it easily overhead or from side to side, thus extending the range of motion possible using it.
What Kinds of Dumbbells, Barbells, and Kettlebells Does Power Systems Carry?
A better question might be "What kinds of dumbbells, barbells, and kettlebells does Power Systems NOT carry?" because we stock pretty much everything you could possibly imagine. Metal or vinyl-covered, in a rainbow of colors or in "basic black," and in dozens of different weights and configurations, we've got them all.
Naturally, because you don't want these free weights just laying around on the floor when they're not being used, we also offer a full range of attractive racks and stands to store them on, to encourage uses to "put them back where they got them" when they're finished using them.
So When Deciding Which Shiny New Equipment to Get for Your Shiny New Facility, Don't Forget the Basics
Yes, you want some of the shiny, new, specialized exercise machines, because your clients expect them. But don't forget "the basics." Dumbbells, barbells, and kettlebells have been used by athletes and physical fitness buffs for hundreds of years, and will probably continue to be used long after some of the shiny new machines have been discovered to be fads and end up at the city dump. Even if your new facility had nothing BUT dumbbells, barbells, and kettlebells, your clients could get a great strength training workout by using them. And we've got the largest selection of equipment of this type you're ever likely to find anywhere.
