Fitness-Weight Training

Physical fitness cannot be emphasized enough in today’s society. This society has been moving towards a more sedentary lifestyle for decades and this trend must be changed. Now is the time to start to increase daily activity levels to maintain both cardiovascular fitness and body weight. Staying active, for young and old, will keep your body functioning at a high level. Regular exercise, at some level will maintain the performance of your lungs and heart to most efficiently burn off excess calories and keep weight under control. Exercise will decrease the risk of heart disease, the leading cause of death in America, and will also improve muscle strength, increase joint flexibility and improve endurance. Exercising can be something that you enjoy that helps to increase the overall happiness in your life, as well as relieve symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety

Balls – Medicine Balls

This excerpt from Fit Board Beta Web Site:

 

The medicine ball is a very versatile tool, which comes in various weights and sizes, to improve your strength and athleticism.
It looks like a ball often soft and can conform to your body but it is weighted: sometimes it comes with handles, making it easy to hold on to as you exercise.
Medicine ball training is one of the many components in an individual’s routine.
Medicine ball exercises promote variety by introducing a novel stimulus for
physiological adaptation.
Training with a medicine ball helps to develop total body power, muscular endurance and flexibility.

Medicine balls are designed to be thrown, unlike dumbbells and barbells that will most likely get damaged if you drop them, medicine balls are resilient and allow you to throw them around while training your body to be powerful and explosive: exercises involving tossing and catching the ball are typically classified as a
plyometric exercise

Kettlebells

BodyBuilding.Com Kettlebell Exercises:

Why isolate when you can build dynamic total-body strength and conditioning with kettlebells?

Kettlebells aren’t anything new, but their popularity in fitness circles continues to rise—and with good reason. When used correctly, kettlebells are extremely effective training tools for providing total body strength and conditioning.

The problem is that kettlebells are often used  improperly. As with any technical  movement, lift, or skill, proper coaching is required to maximize the benefits.

It’s  been said the elite are elite because they’re better at the fundamentals than everyone else. The fundamentals  are the key to success in training—or in anything else in life. Master  the basics and you’ll achieve the best results.

The fundamentals of kettlebell training come down to just six exercises. These  are the foundation  exercises, known as the “sacred 6.” Nail these and you’re on your way to a better body.

Kettlebells – Vinyl Kettlebells

EXERCISE 1 THE SWING     BodyBuilding.Com Kettlebell Execises

 

The Russian-style kettlebell swing, in which you project the kettlebell to shoulder-height only, is an insanely effective exercise when executed with proper form. Hip power, hip hinging, and breathing techniques make it incredibly powerful. It’s a two-for-one exercise, meaning you’re able to combine strength training and cardiovascular conditioning into one efficient movement.

The swing is considered the most powerful kettlebell movement because it represents full-body power, extreme fat loss, and a high level of cardiovascular conditioning. It’s also the foundation of all kettlebell ballistic exercises.

 

 

Our Vinyl Kettlebells:

 

Vinyl Kettlebells combine strength training, muscle coordination and aerobic exercise all in one product. Used properly, develop muscle tone, strength and flexibility while promoting fat loss. Effective for both upper and lower body workouts. Vinyl Coated to protect your floors and reduce noise.

Olympic Style Free Weight Bar

This introduction to University of Illinois McKinley Health Center:

*An opinion as to the advantages of free weight training over other exercise programs:

You have been to the gym and noticed some people were using dumbbells and free weight plates and some were using the machines. So, are weight machines the best way to build strength? Or are free weights (barbells with weight plates and dumbbells) more effective? The truth is both have advantages and disadvantages. Check the link for the full review.

Training ropes, sometimes called heavy ropes or battle ropes, are one of the newest fitness trends hitting gyms across the US, but working with ropes is hardly a new form of fitness. Long used

Battle ropes, sometimes called heavy ropes, are one of the newest fitness trends hitting gyms across the US, but working with ropes is hardly a new form of fitness. Long used as a training tool for football players, mixed martial artists (MMA), and other athletes, battle ropes can provide a high-intensity, whole-body workout that gets your muscles moving in new ways.

Unlike the relatively static movement of lifting and lowering a barbell, using battle ropes is a dynamic, ever-changing form of movement that has the added benefit of showing you whether you’re doing the movements correctly.

The ropes can be whipped, slammed, or dragged, but among the most popular are undulating movements that cause the ropes to move in waves. A typical battle rope workout class might have teams of people competing to keep the waves going, or the ropes might be used as part of high-intensity circuit training.

Benefits of Battle Rope Training

Battle ropes are often thought of as a tool for your upper body, which they are. However, their benefits don’t end there. Battle rope workouts work the muscles in your abs, back, and glutes, and you can incorporate movements, such as jumps, lunges, and squats, that work your legs, too.

Jonathan Ross, spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise (ACE) told Channel News Asia:1

‘It’s a little like running with the upper body… It’s not just using different muscles but training muscles in different ways.’

Donna Cyrus, senior vice president of programming at Crunch, continued:

‘It’s a great core training. The abs, back, and glutes (muscles of the buttocks) are all engaged… Obviously there’s toning to the upper body and it burns a lot of calories.’

Research published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research even found that a 10-minute bout of rope training resulted in high heart rates and energy expenditure that would increase cardiorespiratory fitness.
