What’s the best weight set for Body Pump?
So, you’re in the market for a Body Pump set. You’re in good company: these have been the top-sellers on our website throughout lockdown.
And with good reason, as these sets are hugely flexible around your training needs. Use the discs on the bar for barbell exercises, or take advantage of the integrated handles in the discs to use the weights separately for everything from weighted ab crunches to shoulder raises.
The variety of weights that come included in the set allow you to train to your own level, as well as providing scope to progress. And, while we’d always suggest storing equipment indoors, these sets are robust enough to be used for outdoor as well as indoor workouts.
The only question, then, is which set is best for you?
We have four options for you in our catalogue, and they’re all commercial grade, designed for regular in-club use and supplied with commercial warranties. All of which means you can train as hard as you like in total peace of mind that your new equipment will stand up to the test!
Value for money
Our Physical Company Rubber Body Pump Set is a great value-for-money choice and brings a splash of colour to your home workout space. The premium black bar weighs in at 2.4kg, with pairs of brightly-coloured 5kg, 2.5kg and 1.25kg discs plus two quick-release spring collars. Each of the solid virgin rubber discs has three integrated ergonomic handles for a comfortable grip during off-the-bar exercises. Another rubber set to consider is the ZIVA Performance Studio Barbell set in all black.
Durability + flexibility
If you’re looking for even higher levels of durability, and/or the option to purchase additional weight discs – sold in pairs from 1.25kg to 10kg, and with the bar able to support a maximum weight of 50kg – then look no further than our PU Body Pump Set. Made from tough yet tactile polyurethane, our premium Pump Sets are designed to stand up to the toughest environments. This is our ultimate Pump Set, perfect for any group session and again supplied with 2 x 5kg, 2 x 2.5kg and 2 x 1.25kg discs as standard.
Premium + high powered
For a premium, progressive workout experience – one that includes an option to load the bar up to 70kg – you’ll want to take a look at the ZIVA Studio Barbell Set, with its chrome bar, no-roll design and precision solid-cast core. If you really want to push yourself in a tough workout, with the equipment to keep up with you, this is the set for you!
