Top 5 Reasons for Free Weights
Why use Free Weights?
Just carve out a few square feet of space and you can hit every muscle in your body through a crazy range of movements.
Balance and Coordination
Free weights work multiple muscles at once and make them work together. This is essential for coordination and balance.
Free weights allow a full range of motion in open space. This mirrors everyday life and unconstructed movement when you lift, push or pull something.
Compound movements work your entire body at the same time. Going from a squat to an overhead press fires up muscles fast and your calorie burn will be blazing.
Free weights encourage each side of your body to carry its own load which increases strength similarities making it harder for one side to compensate for the other.
