Weight room equipment for junior high lifters

Post by 19delta on Wed Apr 12, 2017 7:14 pm

What kind of equipment would you guys want in your weight room for 7th and 8th graders who have never lifted before?

Here's what we have so far in our weight room:

1. 3 power racks, each with an adjustable bench, two 45lbs barbells, an Oly platform, and plenty of weight
2. Plenty of DBs
3. a couple stand-alone adjustable benches
4. 3 sets of bumper weights (6 each 45s, 6 each 35s, 6 each 25s)
5. 2 Rogers GHR benches
6. a big selectorized machine with 3 high pulleys, 3 low pulleys, and a two adjustable points.
7. Assorted medicine balls
8. a couple kettlebells
9. A single Jammer
10. several ellipticals, exercise bikes, and treadmills.

So far, this is what I have on my list:

1. 10kg (22lbs) Oly bars
2. 10lbs and 25lbs Oly bumper plates
3. Trap bars
4. Prowler-style push sleds


What else would you guys add?

That's a solid list. I like using lots of dbs for kids that age. I stay away from machines for the most part - that's very much a personal preference thing though.
