Bumper Plates are Olympic sized plates made of thick dense rubber. They allow the athlete to drop the loaded Olympic bar from an overhead position without the risk of damaging the lifting platform, the bar, or the plates themselves.
Bumper Plates are Olympic-sized plates (450mm diameter with 50.4mm inserts) and they are made of thick, dense rubber.
Bumper Plates allow an athlete to drop a loaded Olympic bar from an overhead position without the risk of damaging the lifting platform, the bar, or the plates themselves. They come in the same weight varieties as standard plates. Bumper Plates are essential for Olympic lifts where the bar is dropped from the hips, the rack position, and/or overhead.
Bumper Plates are only needed for Olympic lifts, but can be used to reduce noise and vibration in deadlifts as well. They are softer for a home gym as they won’t smash through your foundation, or crack and chip if you accidentally drop them.
