Free Weights Exercises

Below we have video demonstrations of weight training using free weights exercises with dumbbells, barbells, a medicine ball or kettle bell. Advantages of weight training with free weights is that a greater range of movement is possible and all the supporting muscles (called synergists) are also exercised.

Free weights exercises can also be more explosive if performed at speed which is often a lot more relevant for sports specific training. Below we have separated free weights exercises into upper body, legs and core exercises.

Always consult your doctor and qualified instructor before attempting a new exercise program. It is very easy to start off right and loose your form as your muscles fatigue. Always think about your posture when performing strength exercises and start with a light weight and gradually build up.
