A workout with the use of free weights means that no machines are used. The objective is to build muscle mass and strengthen the specific body parts. Free weights can be used to exercise at home, as well as at the gym.
Free weights mainly constitute elements with a certain weight, which can vary from a few to several dozen kilograms. Free weights include: bumpers, Olympic plates, dumbbells and barbells. Free weights also include grips for a multigym or exercise bars, e.g. Olympic bars, curl bars or tricep bars.
