Your weight set is not complete without a set of change plates or fractional plates. Compatible with our full range of Olympic and specialty barbells, our storage systems, collars and machines, our fractional plates are designed to help you improve performance and to meet all of your training needs, from basic strength and fitness at a home gym to high-volume use at a commercial gym or fitness affiliate, and even peak performance competition weightlifting.
Fractional plates help beginner athletes develop their strength, fitness and confidence at a pace that suits them rather than forcing growth at larger rates, and helps more elite athletes hit programmed percentages for powerlifting or Olympic lifting training. They make an excellent addition to any home gym equipment collection.

Weight plates are a type of weight lifting equipment used to add resistance to adjustable barbells and dumbbells, as well as plate-loaded weight machines. Depending on the intended purpose of the weights and the price, weight plates can be made of steel, cast iron, rubber coated steel solid rubber or even cement-filled plastic (steer clear of these ones). They come in a variety of shapes and finishes. Both beginners and experienced lifters benefit from the use of weight plates and they usually form the basis of most of the compound free-weight training exercises (such as bench press, squat and deadlift).
Change plates, also known as fractional or micro plates are olympic weight plates made in smaller sizes ranging from 0.25kg through to 5kg. They offer tremendous flexibility for all lifters at various strength levels. Athletes, youths, women, men, seniors, advocates of progression training, and individuals rehabbing are some of the areas where small weight increases are sometimes desirable.
