Carolina Fitness Equipment offers a wide variety of free weights including dumbbells, barbells, medicine balls, sandbells, and kettlebells. Unlike weight machines, free weights do not constrain users to specific, fixed movements, and therefore require more effort from the individual's stabilizer muscles. It is often argued that free weight exercises are superior for precisely this reason.
Muscles have three different types of fibers - slow twitch, fast twitch A and fast twitch B. Slow twitch fibers get recruited when you do low-resistance, long-duration exercise. Fast twitch A fibers get recruited when you do more intense actions for a longer period of time like carrying a hay bale from one side of a barn to another. Lastly, fast twitch B fibers get recruited for short, high intensity bursts of effort. Exercise equipment is instrumental in training these muscle fibers.
