You don’t have to buy expensive equipment to get an effective workout. Affordable exercise accessories that can easily fit into even a small apartment or office space are enough. What kind of products is worth buying if you want to start your adventure with exercises at home or at work?
Dumbbells are a popular and extremely versatile piece of equipment that can be used by both men and women. Dumbbells can be used to exercise most muscle groups. Dumbbells can be used to perform exercises for most muscle groups, such as bench presses, dumbbell stretches, arm and triceps flexions, lunges, jumping jacks, squats and rowing.
How to adjust the weight of the dumbbells? The best option for men will be models weighing between 15 and 22 kilograms. As for women, they should start with dumbbells with a weight between 0.5 and 1 kilogram and gradually increase it. We recommend bituminous or cast iron products, to which you can fit additional plates. How should I exercise with dumbbells? It is extremely important here that you do not lock your elbows and knees during the extension. Inhaling should be taken the moment you lift the dumbbells up.
Kettlebell is another very versatile piece of equipment that is great for everyday training. It allows you to perform an effective, varied workout for your entire body. Kettlebell can be used while doing squats, overhead presses or deadlifts. Regular exercise with its help is a proven way to improve endurance and coordination, increase strength and get rid of excess weight.
How to choose the perfect kettlebell? The key issue here is its weight. People who want to use it to do complex, dynamic exercises, such as pull-ups or swings, should get weights of about 16-20 kg. Experienced athletes can train with slightly heavier kettlebells.
Exercise bands are an indispensable piece of equipment for people who care about muscle development and fitness. Products of this type available on store shelves differ from each other in color. Each of them is a different thickness of the rubber, and thus – a different strength of stretching. We can choose between mini band and power band models. The first of them are not very stretchy and short. Thin latex is used in their production. When it comes to power bands, however, they are thicker, longer and more stretchy. The main advantage of exercises with the use of this type of accessories is that they engage almost all muscle parts. As they provide resistance, they allow you to effectively build and sculpt muscles. Exercise bands can be used to train shoulders, arms, thighs and buttocks.
These are handy, durable, versatile accessories that allow you to perform a variety of exercises. Training with TRX straps develops the whole body, engaging many different muscle groups at the same time. It is a proven way to slim your figure and increase your strength. This type of tape is mounted on a special bar or handles. The regulation system allows to adjust them to individual possibilities.
These types of balls are perfect for both corrective exercises or rehabilitation, as well as fitness classes such as TBC, ABT or Fat Burning. Nothing stands in the way of using them to exercise at home. Individual models of balls may differ from each other in material or diameter. Training with them involves the deep muscles responsible for maintaining balance. Gym balls can be successfully used by both beginners and advanced people.
