Across the fitness industry Olympic plates will be of the same size/standard to ensure consistency, they are classed as Olympic due to the 2’’ centre hole which fits the Olympic barbell perfectly. Olympic bars are designed to allow you to lift heavier weights and gain more from your workout, however Olympic weight sets aren’t just used with the barbell. These versatile plates could also be part of other routines including studio workouts.
We offer a selection of Olympic plate weights including bumper plates. Due to the increase in those participating in CrossFit, demand of Olympic lifting is higher than ever. The use of bumper plates is to allow a safe space for the practice of exercises such as snatches and presses. During these manoeuvres the Olympic barbell will be dropped from a height and the use of bumper plates mean that they are dropped, there is limited risk of damage to the athlete, floor or equipment.
You’ll also notice that we provide the option of rubber and urethane Olympic plate weights, but what’s the difference? They are both the same as cast iron plates with an extra coating of rubber for safety and to increase longevity of the equipment. Urethane is a material that is much more durable than rubber and is unlikely to leave marks or damage. However, with rubber you will find that this could leave marks on the floor or other equipment.
