Heavy lifting

RFE International’s new range of Reebok strength-building equipment includes Olympic bars and steel dumbbells. The 10” 22kg Power Bar – made from steel – is for moves such as the clean and press, jerk and bent-over row. Additional 50mm Olympic weight plates can be loaded onto the bar.

For use with the Power Bar and Olympic Bar, Reebok’s Olympic bumper plates range from 2.5kg to 25kg and use rubber to ensure the loaded bar can be safely dropped without risk of damaging either the plates or the lifting platform.

Dumbbells also feature in the product line-up, ranging from 5kg to 50kg for progressive functional training and increasing muscle mass. The hexagonal dumbbells have a black knurled steel handle, and a neoprene coating to lessen noise, floor damage and wear and tear.

The new Reebok kettlebell is designed with lots of space between the ball and handle, and weights vary from 4kg to 50kg.

Urban bar for all

The Urban Strength Bar from Physical Company brings together strength, flexibility and balance. Designed to make calisthenics training accessible to everyone, the system promotes four types of movements: planks, lower body exercises, upper body exercises and links.

By enhancing movements with increasing levels of leverage, the Urban Strength Bar is designed to improve performance, reduce the risk of injury and help develop muscle tone by lengthening muscles through big, expressive movements.

The Urban Strength Bar allows people to work the whole body in the frontal, sagittal and transverse planes of movement, either in single exercises or linking all planes of movement together.

Liquid core

Jordan Fitness has introduced the water-filled CorMax range to give athletes and fitness enthusiasts another tool in developing and maintaining a strong, stable core.

Drawing on many muscle groups in just one exercise, the CorMax bag is filled with water.

As the water sloshes side to side, it pulls and pushes the user in every direction, triggering the stabilising core muscles.

The less water in the CorMax products, the harder they are to control; the more water, the heavier and more stable they become.
