Free Weight Area

The free weight area is judiciously located in a separate section, which excludes a rough and tough ambience for serious bodybuilding. It has plate –loaded machines where plate. Dumbbells and barbells are kept separately. The separate area fitted with mirrors provides the stimulus needed to pursue serious bodybuilding for the enthusiasts.

A weight training area or gym as it is commonly known, is really an area where the players in a rugby club or school can safely and productively complete planned resistance training programmers. Younger players or age grade players should ideally be supervised at all times when training in the gym. Adult players ideally require supervised and qualified supervision as well but some exceptions can be made for small group use of the gym for adult players. No player of any age or stage of development should use the gym facility on their own without qualified supervision. This brochure is intended to provide information and guidelines in terms of setting up a gym, the type of equipment that may be used, suggested layouts and some possible alternatives for a resistance training area for clubs that do not have a readymade and available area in their club.

Free Weights include dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells, and anything else you can pick up and hold. They make your body work against gravity to pick up the object. For certain exercises, you may need a bench to sit or lie on, or other equipment such as a squat cage to conveniently and safely work with the weight. The best thing about free weights is that they work lots of little tiny muscles you almost don’t realize you’re using.Take a squate for example. which works your quads, the muscles on the front of your thigh. If you used a leg extension machine instead, you could work that same muscle. But squatting with a barbell or a pair of dumbbells, you bring more than just your quads into the action. Your inner and outer thigh muscles have to engage to keep your legs in place. Your butt, hamstrings, and core help to keep your body steady while you go through the movement. And depending on how you hold the weight, you may be working your arms as well. That means you can get almost as much of a workout from a few sets of squats as from a half an hour going around from machine to machine. Big movements like squats, deadlifts, pull-ups, and overhead presses are considered “functional” because they translate directly to everyday movements. If you’re good at dead lifts for example, you’ll be great at moving couches. Most well-supplied gyms will have a hefty selection of both free weights and machines. Today we’re going to skip over the treadmills and other cardio machines and look at these categories of equipment
