Global strength training weights market

Strength training weights include weight plates, dumbbells, kettlebells, and barbells. These weights help in strength training in a free range of motions that one controls while lifting the weights. Weights are the most widely used strength training equipment because of their affordable prices and the quick benefits that they offer.

The weights of weight plates range between 2.5 pounds and 100 pounds. Mostly, they are made up of iron, however, plastic weight plates are also available, especially for use in home gyms. Iron made weight plates are found in commercial gyms. Common types of iron weight plates are Olympic weight plates for Olympic barbells and standard weight plates for the one-inch thick standard-sized barbells.

“Plastic weight plates are suitable for use by beginners, but are not recommended for professionals. This is because the thickness of plastic weight plates restricts the amount of weight that can be placed on the barbell,” says Arushi.

Global strength training hydraulic equipment market

Strength training hydraulic equipment offers multiple benefits including bi-directional resistance. Such resistance creates a push or pull effect, which in turn, allows more muscles to be used while exercising with this equipment. It also accelerates the body’s metabolic activity and calorie burn, making the workout intense and fruitful. Additionally, this equipment requires less floor space than others, allowing more room for other equipment like cardio or functional training pieces. The use of hydraulic equipment helps sportspersons develop power, lean muscle endurance, and core stability.

Global strength training functional trainers market

Functional trainers are one of the core machines used for strength training. These are multi-functional machines that can be used for a complete body workout. These are used for multiple types of exercises including rehabilitation and sports-specific applications and are one of the most basic and versatile cable machines. Functional trainers have two adjustable arms that accommodate high or low training positions. As functional trainers can be used for training at any speed without any impact, they are popular among fitness enthusiasts for many different applications. The functional trainers segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate among all the other segments because as they can be used for full body workout.
