Invest in a plate loaded machine
Sport, fitness and strength centers represent significant investments that require several years of amortization, which is why it is essential to choose the right equipment. The machines must therefore be reliable, secure, robust to be able to hold with time and above all adapted to the target audience. For a fitness center intended more for bodybuilders and weightlifters, free-load machines are essential equipment because they are perfectly suited to those particular athletes who need to control very precisely the loads used during their activity while maintaining a high level of safety to avoid any risk of injury. To get the best out of quality plate loaded machines at lower cost, the ideal is without doubt to turn to refurbished second-hand devices which offer excellent value for money.
The different plate loaded machines
There are a large number of free-weight machines to meet everyone's expectations. Indeed, free-load weight training machines are designed to work specific muscle groups by defining the load to be applied according to its level, unlike selectorized machines. They are therefore particularly popular with people performing training aimed at strengthening certain muscles intensively and knowing their body and their needs well for this purpose. Thus, it is possible to opt for a free load leg press to work the hamstrings, the quadriceps, but also the glutes and calves. Regarding the upper body and more particularly the arms, weightlifters will find their account with a machine like the inclined bench press where it will be possible to define the weight for each arm. For specific pectoral work, manufacturers also have a specific machine: the iso-lateral chest press with oblique load. This device allows for diverging and convergent movements in order to develop this muscle group in a harmonious and simultaneous way. If the objective is to strengthen the abdominal strap and in particular the obliques, the most effective will undoubtedly be to turn to a machine like the abdominal crunch with free weights which allows to really target these muscles to work in depth according to the needs. Other plate loaded machines are also available to specifically train abductors, shoulders, calves, etc.
The interest of plate loaded refurbished second-hand machines
There is no doubt that weight machines are a hefty expense that weighs heavily on the budget of creating a gym. It is therefore normal to seek solutions to reduce the bill for such equipment, especially when it is necessary to acquire several to obtain a complete gym that will satisfy customers. For this purpose, it is possible to opt for refurbished second-hand machines which are much more accessible than identical brand-new machines. Indeed, this equipment is completely revised by teams of experts who are responsible for testing it and changing the necessary parts in order to return to its initial state. This type of product therefore offers only advantages since they are refurbished quality machines, available at much more affordable prices.
