Weight plates and weights
Weight plates or weight plates are used to increase the weight during strength training and weight lifting. They are used to increase the intensity and challenge of exercises by adding additional weight.
Strength increase: adding weight plates to a barbell, dumbbell or other type of weight equipment increases resistance, which can lead to an increase in muscle strength and mass. By increasing weight plates on a regular basis, you can make steady progress in your workout.
Progression in training: weight plates allow gradual progression in training. One can gradually increase the weight to continuously challenge the body and encourage progress. This is important to overcome plateaus and achieve desired results.
Versatility: weight plates are available in different weight ranges, allowing for a wide variety of workout options. You can use them for various exercises like squats, bench press, deadlift, shoulder press and many others.
Adaptability: weight plates can be easily attached to different types of weight machines, including barbells, dumbbells, cable machines and other fitness equipment. This makes them extremely versatile and allows for a wide range of exercises and training methods.
Weight plates are available in various designs and hole diameters. Depending on the barbell rod used, you will need discs with a hole diameter of 26mm, 31mm or 51mm. Discs are available in cast iron, rubberized or polyurethane coated.
Bumper plates are special weight plates used mainly in weightlifting and strength training. Unlike traditional weight plates, they are made of dense rubber or hard plastic and are designed to cause minimal damage when dropped on the floor. The main purpose of bumper plates is to improve the safety and longevity of weight exercises, especially in exercises such as the push or snatch in weightlifting, where the weight is often dropped from an elevated height.
It is important to use proper technique and form when training with weight plates to avoid injury. Also, one should choose the weight according to one's abilities and fitness level to avoid overloading.
