Bumper Plates

Bumper Plates, unlike Olympic plates that are primarily made up of various size and weight cast iron discs, are primarily made from solid rubber and a steel center hub. Some manufacturers such as Hampton Fitness and Ivanko Barbell do include an iron core in their plates to make them more compact. Rubber formulations can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer but the most common include virgin rubber and crumb rubber made from post-consumer products such as tires.

Bumper plate sizes, whether in pounds or kilograms, usually all have the same diameter of 17.7”. So for example a 10 lb. bumper plate will have the same diameter as a 45 lb. plate. This is to evenly distribute the impact to all the plates when dropped after a lift and to create a consistent starting height for the bar no matter what size plates are used. The obvious weight difference is apparent in the thickness with the 10 lb. plates at 1” wide and the 45’s coming in just under 4”.

Who Should Use Bumper Plates? You should use this style of plate if you perform Olympic style lifts such as snatches and clean and jerks. The cushion and bounce that these plates provide when dropped will greatly decrease the chances of ruining your Olympic bar and your floors. However, even when using bumper plates for your Olympic lifts, we still recommend using heavy gym mats underneath for added protection.

What Are The Best Bumper Plates To Buy? This depends on the users preference. If you prefer an American made bumper plate, Recycled Crumb Rubber bumper plates by Ironcompany.com and Body Solid are a great buy and the vulcanized rubber will provide years of hard wear. Colored bumper plates identify each size using a different color and can be helpful at close or far range. If a highly accurate bumper plate is a must, the Ivanko Calibrated bumper plates are accurate within 10 grams. Bumper training sets help take some of the guesswork out of the equation by including a weightlifting bar and collars. Some of our sets even include entire garage gyms complete with squat stands, slammer balls and power ropes. And finally, if you are outfitting a school, CrossFit box, military base gym or anywhere that uses a lot of bumper plates all at one time, consider one of our package deals that starts with 6-45 lb. bumpers to as much as 1,990 lbs. that includes 14-10’s, 20-25’s and 30-45’s.
