Lee Priest came down last workout for a chest workout. Not only did we get some great footage, I think we all got motivated to hit our training even harder.
Lee has a few dramas going heavy with dumbbells due to some pain associated with his shoulder surgery to repair a torn bicep tendon. So we thought it would be a good idea to give the Ironmaster Dumbbell Spotting Stands a go.
As you can see they really helped him get the dumbbells into the starting position. The only problem he had is that his shoulders are so wide he barely fits throught the stands!!
All weight tr..
Here is another one of Funk's MMA Workouts. All you need is the Ironmaster Dumbbells, Ironmaster Adjustable Kettlebell, ab roller and skipping rope.This workout is specifically tailored for MMA training. It incorporates 5 workout stations that are completed in 1 minute each with no rest. So that is 5 mins work, just like a MMA round.
Now you are probably saying hey I have got no plans of jumping in the octagon so why do I need to train like a MMA fighter. The answer is simple. This training is highly effective and most importantly I find it enjoyable and challenging. I ca..
Well you have tried Funk Roberts Ironmaster Dumbbell Workouts, now it is time to mix it up with the Ironmaster Kettlebell Handle. If you have the Quick Lock Dumbbells, these videos will show you how this addition will add great variety to your weight training.
I had never tried Kettlebell training until Ironmaster bought out the kettlebell handle. I had more gym equipment than time to train so I did't think I would get into kettlebells. How wrong could I be! The Ironmaster adjustable kettlebell system worked out perfect for my home gym. Well I do't really have a home ..
Here is the next in the series of Funk Roberts Ironmaster Dumbbell workouts. This is a lower body workout that will change your opinion of training legs with dumbbells.
I remember when I first got my Ironmaster gym equipment all those years ago. I was a bit lost when training legs. After years of training in the gym I really only used dumbbells for lunges. Barbell Squats, leg press, leg extensions and lying leg curls were the mainstay of my workouts. So when it came time to train legs there was a bit of head scratching. The trick I have learned is to super set or even giant s..
I am pleased to announce that our Kiwi bros will now be able to get Powertec and Ironmaster gym equipment from FitnessandLeisure.co.nz. We get a lot of inquiries from NZ and have done some exports but having a distributor on the ground is going to make getting quality gym equipment a whole lot easier.
Like Australia, I know the Powertec and Ironmaster range will take the New Zealand market by storm. The combination of functionality and value these two US brands perfect for the serious weight trainer looking for some top quality home gym equipment.
The Ironmaster IM2000, Super Bench and a..
Here is the first in a series of workouts Funk Roberts has created for the Ironmaster Adjustable Dumbbells. Funk specialises in MMA Workouts so check out his website for more great routines. Here is a short and sharp upper body workout that you can do with your Ironmaster Quick Lock Dumbbells. If you have other adjustable dumbbells you won't be able to the push ups in renegade style.
The workout has been structured so that you don't need to change weights between exercises.
Once you can complete the routine in the allotted time, it is time to incre..
This is a great video which shows just how versatile the Ironmaster IM2000 really is. Unfortunately the Ironmaster IM2000 does not look as flash as the Powertec multi gyms we sell, but do't let this fool you. The Ironmaster IM2000 is pack full of great features which gives you loads of exercises to perform.
Unfortunately I do't train much on the Ironmaster IM2000 anymore. The reason being is that I trained almost exclusively on it for over a year and had to start doing more training on other machines. Our old warehouse was tight for space and I was pushed for time. I liked ..
The problem with buying Ironmaster gym equipment is that when you start you will find yourself coming back for more. The reason is that it is not only great to use but takes up bugger all space. The trick is that you just need to only slightly expand your home gym area without the missus finding out and you will be able to easily slot in the Ironmaster IM2000!
In all seriousness, the IM2000 is the perfect piece of gym equipment for any home gym. It is smooth, heavy duty and most importantly compact. There are also hundreds of exercises that can be performed with the bar and cable ..
This is a video of just some of the exercises that can be performed with the Ironmaster Quick Lock Dumbbells. Combine these with the exercises shown in the Ironmaster Super Bench video and you will have plenty of variety to keep weight training for years!
A lot of people have only ever done weight training in a full commercial gym. They often only know how to perform movements on dedicated pieces of gym equipment. If you are in this position then grab a good book on weight training or get on the net and research all the different dumbbell movements. Pretty soon you have dozen..
Even if you do't own an Ironmaster Super Bench, this a good video showing just some of the thousands of exercises that can be performed with a bench and some dumbbells. However after you see some of the cool attachments and how easy the bench is to use you will probably want to upgrade.
My favourite exercise in these videos is the one legged squat. Who said you ca't train legs hard with just dumbbells and a bench. If you think this exercise looks easy then give it a go.
