What’s the best Body Pump weight set? Our advice for beginners and experts, classes and solo exercisers

Venturing into Body Pump workouts? This guide helps you pick the best weight set, whether you’re a beginner or an expert. 

What are the different types of Body Pump Set?

When considering the optimal Body Pump weight set – otherwise known as a Studio Pump Set – understanding the material used is key. Each pump set includes a bar, collars, and a selection of weight plates. With Physical, you can choose between rubber and PU (polyurethane) for the weight plates. Rubber sets are durable and have a traditional look. PU sets, on the other hand, have a modern appearance and are usually better for your floors.

What exercises can you do with a Body Pump Set?

A Body pump Set is versatile, supporting a full body workout. It’s ideal for squats, lunges, bicep curls, and more.

How much does a Body Pump bar and set weigh?

Curious about what our Body Pump sets include? Physical's RBX Rubber Pump Set is a prime example. Ideal for a home workout, these sets are not only easy to store but also versatile.

Every pump set includes a bar, collars, and different weight plates: you get two each of 1.25kg, 2.5kg, and 5kg plates. This allows you to easily adjust the resistance for each exercise. Optional 10kg plates are also available. The RBX bar weighs 2.5kg and can hold up to 50kg. Its dimensions are 30mm in diameter x 1400mm long. The ZIVA Performance Studio Barbell Set is similar but has a lighter bar at 1.6kg.

Switching weight plates is simple, making it easy to adjust for exercises like deadlifts or tricep dips. In Body Pump workouts, you'll often engage in high repetition low weight exercises, all set to the beat of a music track. So, it's wise to start light and add weight as you get comfortable.

Whether you're at home or in the gym, you can opt for fewer reps with a higher weight. Just remember the bar's maximum load. With a wide range of weight options, customising your workout is easy.
