Weight plates - more weight for more power

First weight plates turn the dumbbell or barbell into flexible all-rounders and can even be used as an independent training tool. This overview reveals the different systems available and the differences between weight plates.

Sometimes light, sometimes heavy - finding the right weight plate

Weight plates for dumbbells and barbells usually have a 30 mm insertion hole, which is then secured with a screw-on or clip-on closure. The locks are usually rubberised at the end to ensure a tighter fit on the weight plates. For most dumbbells used at home, this is 30 mm, but the large Olympic barbell uses 50 mm and clip closures are used. The weight plates differ not only in weight but also in diameter. For dumbbells in particular, the diameter should be kept compact. Square dumbbell shapes are also available so that the dumbbell can be put down without rolling away. When training in your own home, you should also have a versatile selection of weights to ensure that you always have the right stimulus. At the peak, lighter weights (0.5 kg) are necessary for this, but heavier weights are also needed - after all, the available space on the barbell is limited.

Which material is right for a weight plate?

The basic material is almost always the same, cast iron forms the basis of a weight plate. If you only train on the inside, you can safely choose simple cast iron. Chrome-plated weight plates are chic, but chrome-plating is only really necessary for outdoor training or when storing the weights in the basement or garage. Chrome does not rust. Rubberised weight plates have a better grip and add colour. This is a popular alternative, especially for aerobic weight plates, but also protects the floor at home. Inexpensive alternatives to cast iron can be found in rubberised cement plates, but cement is brittle - cast iron is the more durable choice in any case. Cast iron weight plates are, after all, indestructible.

Weight plates with finger holes

In addition to solid weight plates, there are also variants with finger holes; these have advantages and disadvantages. The biggest disadvantage is the additional width or diameter for the same weight, after all the engagement must be compensated. On the other hand, these weight plates (especially rubberised ones) can be held perfectly, ideal for squats, free back press or farmer's walk with weight plates.

Heavy training made easy

Dumbbell training is one of the most versatile disciplines in strength training. To ensure the right training stimulus for each exercise, the weight must be right. Weight plates can be quickly replaced on the barbell and last several decades without any problems. Athletes should therefore invest in their equipment with foresight.
