Plate Loaded and Leverage Gym Equipment are exercise machines used in homes, studios and clubs that utilize weight plates as a form of resistance. Plate Loaded exercise equipment is designed to help strengthen and build each muscle in the body. A seated calf raise machine will strengthen both the inner (soleus) and the outer (gastrocnemius) muscles of the calf. A plate loaded lat pulldown will thicken and strengthen the upper lats which help shape the tapered, or V, look of the torso. And a plate loaded leg extension machine will build strong and defined quadriceps which also shapes the “tear drop” just above the knee. These machines are extremely effective and are a more affordable option compared to strength machines with weight stacks.
Leverage machines such as the Powertec Workbench Multi System or Body Solid Leverage Gym System are plate loaded leverage machines configured into a circuit that allows the user to perform major push/pull exercises including chest presses, lat pulldowns and arm curls. Lever arms drive the exercises. Weight plates are loaded directly onto the lever which simply replaces the barbell thus providing the natural feel and resistance of free weight with the safety and control of a machine.
