Ivanko Barbell Rubber Bumper Plate Review

It seems these days, anyone who participates in weight training for exercise and hobby, has come across the gung ho individual who swears by bumper plate training! Moreover, as weight training continues to become more mainstream with the advent of compound movements such as Olympic lifts made popular by the Olympic Summer Games, CrossFit and Cross Training movements, rubber bumper plates are now all the rage in homes, clubs and competitions across the World!

Surely footed in the bumper plate industry sits Ivanko Barbell, a long standing quality Olympic bar and weight plate manufacturer whose pursuit of excellence in quality craftsmanship and accuracy has made them the front runner in a harshly competitive environment!

What are Ivanko Barbell Bumper Plates?
Ivanko bumper plates are Olympic weightlifting plates designed of very thick and durable rubber that are often called “bumpers” in the weightlifting community. These plates allow the user to drop a barbell that is loaded with weight right down to the floor without the fear and high risk of causing damage and stress directly to the barbell and plates being used or to surfaces such as gym floors and weightlifting platforms. Ivanko bumper plates help to absorb much of the impact being produced from weight loads crashing down, and as such, they make an excellent choice for anyone performing weightlifting power moves that call for quick weight release for safety reasons.

Why should I train with Ivanko Bumper Plates?
Ivanko Barbell bumper plates make an excellent choice when training endeavors include Olympic lifts such as the Clean and Jerk, the Snatch or any combination or variation of these compound movements. As athletes develop their skill in these powerful exercises they can increase their technique at hoisting large weight loads where the end of the movement finishes overhead or in the upper torso region. This obviously makes it unsafe and difficult to bring the loaded bar back to the floor and this makes Ivanko bumper plates an essential training and competition tool required to meet these demands.

Another reason to consider training with Ivanko bumper plates is the noise factor or that which you will create! If you will be training at home, in a garage or basement or in a small training club, there will be many times and many movements where using steel weight plates can cause a loud noisy environment. Do basic movements like a deadlift in these settings and hear the crashing of metal plates vibrating with the bar! Not a sound that makes your family, neighbors or club patrons excited to hear that you’re training again! Bumper plates can eliminate some of this noise factor as they won’t crash and bang loudly when bouncing around!
