It starts from a central hub in metal that is inserted into a mold of the size and weight different according to the size desired, To this hub is added a rubber disc that will then be pressed into a machine that adds heat and pressure to occupy all the space of the mold.

Royal Blak Bumper Plates

Bumper Plate Royal KingsBox da CrossFit

The Kingsbox Olympic weight plates are standard Olympic weights (450 mm diameter), made of steel and rubber, designed for daily barbell training. The central hole ring of the bumper is made of steel that is melted with rubber.

To ensure a solid grip we have added to the insert two anchor rods that prevent the rotation of the central part. New design – high quality from the Kingsbox brand. High strength, a very low rebound and controlled, affordable price. What distinguishes our rubberized weights from those of the competition is the fact that we thought about making the discs a little thinner so as to allow you to load more weight on a single barbell.

5 kg discs are not suitable for being dropped freely on the floor.

Hi-Temp 3.0 bumper discs

Buy the correct kettlebells

Since kettlebells became popular in gyms, more and more companies have started selling and manufacturing them. But beware, not all are the same. Here is a short guide to buying the first Kettlebell :

Competition Kettlebell

This type of kettlebell has a more square handle and the body of the kettlebell remains the same size regardless of weight. This type of kettlebell is designed for competition and the narrow handle allows the minimum movement of the hand inside the handle. This type of kettlebell is perfect for one-handed exercises, but for beginners it offers little space to hold the tool with two hands.

Kettlebell in cast iron

The cast iron kettlebells have a slightly rounded handle, have a uniform shape and have no sharp corners. The space between the handle and the sphere should be large enough to pass a closed fist horizontally but not so large that you can pass a closed fist vertically. Choosing the correct kettlebell is of vital importance. Poorly designed Kettlebells will not perform their task optimally and will seriously reduce the result of the training.

Gym dumbbells

Times have changed. Today there are three common types of dumbbells: adjustable, fixed and selective. Here is a series of different models

Adjustable dumbbells for gym

Adjustable gym dumbbells allow you to adjust the weight according to specific needs or exercises. These dumbbells usually consist of a small handlebar and weights. The biggest advantage of adjustable dumbbells is that they do not require much space.

Fixed dumbbells
