Basic weightlifting equipment

When it comes to exercise equipment, with the possible exception of the jump rope you really can’t get much more basic then the gear you need for weight lifting. The first body builders probably just used very big rocks! But seriously, one of the nice things about weight lifting is not only is it a great way to get in shape, and build strength and self confidence-it does not really require any real fancy or expensive equipment. Now you can join a gym and have access to all the weight lifting gear you can imagine, both free weights and machines. But you can also accomplish many of the benefits of weight lifting with a basic set of barbells, dumbbells, and a good home work out regimen. Dumbbells usually are the familiar one-piece bone-shaped hand weights. Barbells are usually used for the more advanced workouts and longer muscle groups.

Unless you have a back problem you already are aware of weight belts for additional support are usually not necessary for basic weight lifting workouts. In fact some trainers so they do more harm than good because they allow a lifter to lift more than they really are physically capable of, and cause certain muscles in the forearms and lower back to receive less of a work out and less of a benefit from your weight lift routine. Don’t forget that the basic physics of weight lifting is to apply force against muscle contraction to overcome the force of gravity- that same feat can be accomplished by lifting your body weight-and if you are really on a tight budget or pressed for space a simple chin-up bar can be installed in any doorway to get in some lifting and strength training
