Weight Training Equipment for Your Fitness Workout

Part of the Weight Training For Dummies Cheat Sheet (Australia/New Zealand Edition)

Although you don’t need much equipment to get started in weight training (apart from weights, of course!), getting hold of a few pieces of equipment will hugely benefit your fitness regime.

  • An adjustable weight bench: Although you can perform dozens of exercises with dumbbells alone, a weight bench gives you far more versatility.

  • Weight lifting gloves: Gloves give you a firmer grip on the weights, protect the skin on your palms, and make you look like a pro.

  • A personal trainer: A gifted trainer can get you over the learning curve in a hurry and, in just a few sessions, teach you technique tips that last a lifetime.

  • Exercise bands: Rubber bands fit easily into your carry-on bag or your desk drawer at work and give you a better strength workout than you might imagine.

  • A weight training diary: Tracking the details of your workouts provides you with valuable feedback and the inspiration to keep lifting.
