Whole body movements and using weights are known for burning calories, stimulating muscle growth, increasing strength and bone strength.
The best exercises are those that mean you perform daily tasks outside the gym safely, like carrying your holiday suitcase or moving furniture. Rather than relying on machines that only have you moving in one plane of motion, free weights training allows you to move through all three planes of motion, as you would in everyday life.
Using free weights relies on core stability so that you control the weight and don’t wobble when performing each exercise, an added benefit which you wouldn’t get if you stuck to using machines where you sit down the whole time. You may be performing an overhead press, but you still need to engage your quads, glutes and stomach muscles to support and control the movement of the dumbbells or barbell.
This also results in increased balance. You may prefer HIIT or Yoga, but including some free weights training in your regime will increase your balance, which is a win when it comes to trying more difficult yoga poses and maintaining form when you start to fatigue in a HIIT class.
The free weights training room can be pretty hectic, particularly in January when most of us are perhaps trying to lose those extra ‘gains’ made over the holidays. We also know some gym members can get overly enthusiastic on their dumbbell bench press or when celebrating those PBs. All of which can quickly add up to a tired looking weights training area in no time at all.
We’re changing that this year with the PAVIGYM Endurance flooring. It is designed to last longer than you do when you PB your squat, bench press, and clean and jerk. The high-density virgin rubber is perfect for heavy impact and absorbing noise so that your weight training zones are no longer louder than your music. Gone are the days of tired and damaged training rooms caused by equipment.
Our Endurance flooring comes in a variety of modern color options to suit your branding and space so that you can have the most stylish and resistant training area.
