Olympic plates, dumbbells, bumper plates, kettlebells, adjustable dumbbells, standard plates, rubber coated…
Back in the “good old days” as Jeff likes to say, there was only Iron. Now, of course, there’s lots of different training styles and weight to match. We’ve got it all, so no matter if you’re a cross-fitter or a kettlebell-swinger or an iron-deadlifter, we’ve got you covered.
Kettlebells are great workouts and often under appreciated. Since they’re a little less traditional, we’re happy to help you learn about some of the exercises you can do, like a Turkish Getup (which has an awesome name, by the way).
Iron Plates in both slotted (grip) or regular old-fashioned plates. York is our premier manufacturer here, an age-old name that the meatheads will surely recognize. For clarification: “meathead” around here is a compliment.
Rubber Bumper Plates are popular these days among the CrossFit crowd. But even if you’re just doing deadlifts in your garage, they’re much easier on your floor and don’t require big heavy mats. Some trainers also use 10lb rubber bumper plates just because they’re so large and can keep a bar higher off the ground for deadlifts.
Adjustable Dumbbells are another lesser-known solution. We recommend PowerBlocks, which are a phenomenal invention.
Dumbbells come in both rubber hex and steel hex. Rubber is easier on your floor if it’s more fragile.
