Bumper Plates

Showing 1-1 of 1 Products


When it comes to weightlifting, bumper plates offer a unique set of features that set them apart from traditional iron plates. Here's what makes bumper plates a must-have for your gym:

Rubber Material Design: Bumper plates are most unique in that they are almost entirely made up of rubber which gives them the ability to be dropped and not cause damage to the plates or your barbell. This is what makes them ideal for Olympic weightlifting, performing the clean and jerk and snatch, where you would typically need to drop your bar after every rep.

Color Coordinated: One of the standout features of bumper plates, especially competition-style plates, is their color coordination based on the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) spec. Each weight is color-coded for easy identification, allowing you to quickly identify and grab the right plates during your training.

Varying Sizes: Bumper plates come in a range of sizes and thicknesses, catering to different weightlifting needs. Whether you're loading up the bar for heavy squats or fine-tuning your technique with lighter lifts, bumper plates provide the versatility you need to get the most out of your training.

Bumper Plates Uses

Bumper plates find their place in a variety of sports and fitness training, thanks to their durability and versatility. Here are some common uses of bumper plates:

Olympic Weightlifting: Bumper plates are a staple in Olympic weightlifting, where precision and technique are paramount. The ability to safely drop the barbell during lifts like the snatch and clean and jerk without damaging the floor or the plates themselves makes bumper plates essential for any serious lifter.

CrossFit and HIIT: Bumper plates are a common sight in CrossFit boxes and high intensity training facilities, where workouts often include a mix of Olympic lifts and powerlifting movements. Their versatility and durability make them well-suited for the dynamic, high-intensity nature of training.

Powerlifting: While not the first choice for powerlifting exercises like squats, bench presses, and deadlifts,  bumper plates offer added convenience for anyone looking to get the most out of their equipment. If you are someone who utilizes multiple styles of training, bumper plates offer the most versatile option.
