Fractional Fraction Plates come in 1/4 lb, 1/2 lb, 3/4 lb and 1 lb weight sets.
Don't want to add 2.5 lbs X-s (5 lbs) and want to add less (2 lbs) ? This is your fix!!
Powder Coated, Chrome and Gold plated and built to last, fit standard olympic 2" & Standard
1" bars and dumbbells.
Quality - Plates are made from high-quality, powder-coated, Chrome and Gold plated steel (not aluminum). Each plate is machine
etched with its weight for easy identification. Offered in Olympic plate 2" and standard 1"size (2" center diameter).
Flexibility - Like all fractional plates, they allow you to make weight increases in as little as ¼ lb. increments on each side of your Olympic bar 2" or standard bar 1". That's just a ½ lb. total increase, versus the normal 5 lb. increase with the usual two 2½ lb. plates.
That also means you can increase weight in ½, 1, 1½, 2, 2½, 3, 3½, 4, 4½ lb. increments before you would get to the usual 5 lb. increase. In some difficult exercise, increasing your weight by 5 lbs. is just not manageable or necessarily safe. It is important to control the weight increases, so that the body is able to grow in size and strength without failure or injury.
