Free Weights - SPRI

Effective exercise is all about the biggest payoff for your investment of time and money.  Burn calories, strengthen your muscles and improve your balance with free weights. Regardless of what muscle group you are targeting, free weights, such as dumbbells and kettlebells, can help you achieve your goals.

Benefits of Free Weights

  • Affordable. Get the benefits of expensive workout machines for a fraction of the cost.
  • Functional. Most people workout to better themselves, to improve their everyday strength and movements. Whether you are carrying groceries to your third-floor apartment or climbing up your attic ladder with a heavy box, free weights train you for functional activities. 
  • Convenient. You are more likely to keep up with a workout routine that you don't have to leave the house for. You can also easily carry free weights on trips. You can work out wherever you are. 
  • Efficient. Using free weights never works just one muscle. Multiple muscle groups work together to lift the weight and control the movement, an efficiency that exceeds machine movements. Your balance and coordination also improve from multiple muscle coordination. 

Customize Your Workout

Flexibility is another key asset of free weights. You can customize a workout routine that fits your strength level and time availability. Here's just a sample of exercises you can do with dumbbells and kettlebells. 

  • Kettlebells are effective for dynamic movements. Explosive movements, such as snatches, cleans, windmills, Turkish get-ups and the famous kettlebell swing are ideal for spiking your heart rate while working entire muscle chains. 
  • Dumbbells are great for classic exercises, such as the chest and shoulder press, row, lateral lunge, extended sit-up or squats.
