Bumper Plates are a necessity for any strength training program that will involve training the Olympic lifts or assistance movements involved in Olympic weightlifting training. A true bumper plate is made of solid Vulcanized rubber. Our Olympic weight plates are not rubber coated iron plates that will peel and crack. The benefit of solid rubber bumper plates is they can be dropped from overhead without damaging floors in the way that cast iron or steel Olympic plates would. Being able to drop the weights or "bail out" of a lift is essential when a trainee begins to use heavy poundages that could possibly cause injury to the trainee if he/she were to attempt to bring the weight set down to the body after the full physical exertion required for a maximum lift.
