The dip belt often features a chain that goes through a plate weight to increase the amount an individual has to lift during body weight driven exercises.
Used to determine the amount of heart beats per minute while exercising, the heart rate monitor allows for workout optimization and maximum calorie burn.
For the most serious of power lifters, weight lifting straps are a near mandatory piece of equipment. Improving grip and added comfort are the primary benefits of using them.
Best used sparingly, the weight lifting belt is designed to protect the lower back during intense weight lifting sessions.
Weight lifting can put an enormous amount of pressure on the hands. Weight lifting gloves assist in relieving that pressure while offering a multitude of other benefits.
Most commonly used for yoga poses and stretches, yoga mats are also used to provide added comfort while performing various abs / core exercises.
