Product Features

  • MORE FREQUENT PR'S

    In the fight for strength, every pound matters. These fractional plates feature eight 0.5-pound plates, so you can apply small or large micro-loading to all your lifts - from overhead presses to bicep curls.

  • EASIER MICRO-LOADING

    Adding 5 pounds to your 50-pound barbell curl is a whopping 10% weight jump. Fractional plates make it easier to load smaller muscle groups, so you hit fewer plateaus and make more progress.

  • FIT OLYMPIC BARBELLS

    In an act of desperation, lifters often resort to using washers or magnets to create makeshift 0.5 lb plates. These fractional plates actually fit your Olympic barbell sleeves and stay put as they should.

Product Details


Listen, buddy - I get it. You never thought that you'd need smaller weight plates than 2.5lbs. After all, change plates cover your bases pretty well already.

But haven't you wondered why your arm and shoulder strength always lag behind? Sure, these are smaller muscle groups than those in your legs. But their lack of progress mostly boils down to getting pummelled by the same loading scheme used to progress squats and deadlifts, by adding 2.5-5lbs per side.

Instead of forcing 5-10lb jumps on overhead presses and biceps curls, these lifts should be loaded in a more sensible way - by adding weight in smaller increments of 1-4lbs.

Fractional cast iron plates that fit Olympic barbells, with a guaranteed weight tolerance of +/-16 grams.


IMPORTANT: Because they're cast iron instead of machined, some minor blemishes, +/-16 gram weight tolerance & 51mm hole are standard for them.
