Using free weights for strength training will help you get stronger and improve muscle definition. Free weights are an important part of any exercise routine and should be used in combination with cardiovascular exercise for a well-rounded fitness approach.

 

VASA'S FREE WEIGHTS

INCLUDED IN BASIC, FITNESS AND STUDIO MEMBERSHIPS

Using free weights will help you develop muscle through resistance exercises. “Free weights” refers to anything that isn’t attached to a structure or machine and includes kettlebells, medicine balls, barbells, and dumbbells. Strength training using free weights helps define muscles and will make you stronger. Free weights are an important part of any exercise routine and should be used in combination with cardiovascular exercise for a well-rounded fitness approach.

BENEFITS OF FREE WEIGHTS AREA

GET STRONGER, FASTER.

Free weights allow you to move through your exercises with a greater range of motion. The freedom in range of motion helps you adapt better form because you aren’t limited to the path of the weight machine. Additionally, research has shown free weights, when compared to weight machines, help the muscles get stronger, faster. This is because more muscles are used to stabilize free weight exercises compared to similar machine exercises. Not only are you engaging the targeted muscle group, but your stabilizing muscles are also being put to work as you keep your body balanced.

HOW TO USE FREE WEIGHTS

A WEIGHT FOR EVERY GOAL

Free weights can be used for a wide variety of exercises, from basic compound movements like a bench press and lunge to more dynamic movements like cleans and snatches. Utilize different types of free weights to help you reach your goals. To become more powerful, kettlebells and medicine balls tend to be the preferred tools. When training for absolute strength, barbells and dumbbells get the job done.
