Are Fractional Weight Plates a worthwhile investment?

There comes a point when adding 5kg to the bar each week becomes a struggle. So, what are your options? You invest in fractional weight plates. 

Fractional plates are the answer to breaking through the plateau you can’t seem to conquer! We all know there is no better sign of progress than adding weight to the bar as a measure of getting stronger.

When it comes to smashing your PBs at home or in the gym by adding weight in smaller increments will make a big difference in the long run. However, not all commercial gyms stock the smallest of plates, you’ll often see weight plates ranging from 2.5kg to 25kg stored in the squat or bench area but if you’re struggling to increase your weight, a 5kg or 10kg increase is a huge jump, especially when you’re moving the weight above your head.

Fractional weights are available in .5kg increments, starting at 0.5kg through to 2.5kg, they’re designed to assist with building strength by progressively overloading your muscles whilst lifting safely and responsibly due to increasing the weight in manageable amounts to cater for consistent progress. Instead of adding 5kg to your squat or bench press, fractional plates can assist with a better transition and progression, helping you achieve the gains you really want whilst accomplishing record PBs. They’ll allow you to increase or decrease the weight as you need, making them ideal if you’re a powerlifter, Olympic weightlifter or a bodybuilder. Fractional plates, also known as micro plates, can facilitate any training regime whilst helping you get realistic with your weight increase.

Push yourself to the next level, don’t remain stuck, there’s a solution. If you haven’t tried them already, we’d encourage that you do so, whether you’re a novice or an experienced lifter they’ll help you continue to improve your performance.
