    I love how everyone makes fun of bumper plates as crossfit plates. They're suppose to be used for Olympic lifts so you can drop them from above your head without damaging the plates or the floor. I have never seen anyone use them for benching other than this man making fun of crossfiters for using them for benching. I don't like crossfit but these plates have literally no direct connection to crossfit

    I haven't experienced bumper plates feeling any lighter than iron or iron-coated-in-rubber plates. Mass is mass.
    *Psychological tricks*
    Most probably you're experiencing a psychosomatic aversion to the iron plates because you're envisioning the bill from your landlord about the floor if you have to dump the bar loaded with iron plates.
    Like entrepreneurship increasing alongside universal health care, bumpers (and a proper platform) make going for tough lifts a little psychologically easier because you've got a safety net for the rare occasion when things go wrong.
    *Barbell rotation*
    The other difference I've noted is that I lift iron with my crappy old bar that doesn't rotate so well, whereas I lift bumper plates with my less-crappy, less-old bar that rotates pretty well. How smoothly the bar rotates makes for a stunning difference in the difficulty of the fast lifts.
    Similarly, the size of the plate might also affect the difficulty of the lift, due to rotational inertia. If you're comparing 25-pound iron plates to 25-pound bumper plates, the shorter 25-pound iron would seem easier.
    *Test Your Hypothesis*
    Maybe your iron 45s are actually 50s. Maybe your bumpers that say 25 are actually 23.5. Maybe the bar you load with bumpers is 40 instead of 45--that happened to me. Take your plates and bar to the scale and be sure that they're labelled properly.

  • Travis Pennington

    The problem with bodybuilders is that you think you are alpha but you are really a beta bitch. You are training for a male beauty pageant, to LOOK strong not be strong. Put on a pair of panties, oil yourself up, get on stage and dance while flexing while other dudes are checking you out like a strip club and you think people that train crossfit are fake pussies lmao at least they are training to be an athlete instead of a poser. They don't give a fuck about how much it LOOKS like they are lifting, they are just lifting. They use bumper plates because if you drop 95 let alone 300 from overhead you are going to destroy the floor and plates you stupid fuck!

    A good CrossFitter (say Ben Smith) would make you look like an exercise chump. You can't come close to doing what they do, but they can do probably 90% to 150% of what you can do - depending on the lift.
    CrossFit for the BIG win (over gym goons like RobertFrank)!
    Ben's benchmarks at 195lbs:
    Back Squat 480 lb
    Clean and Jerk 335 lb
    Snatch 300 lb
    Deadlift 540 lb

      in olympic weightlifting you are max efforting on things like clean and jerk and must drop the bar thats why you use platforms and rubber plates , this is not necessary for the basic moves that powerlifting uses. But this guys has no interest in olympic weightlifting because that takes you know a lot of skill

    • Silent Psykosis
      Silent Psykosis 2 years ago +1

      Wouldn't that make the padded plates a good idea then? Until you're lifting heavy enough to run out of space on the bar then you use steel plates.

    • Gerardo Sinecio

      Because dropping metal plates while doing olympic weightlifting would definitely damage the bar, the plates and the floor.

    • Silent Psykosis
      Silent Psykosis 2 years ago +1

      So, what's the difference? The density? Wouldn't that mean cross fit plates are a good idea until you lift so much that you need more dense weights on the grounds that the bar does not have enough space to carry the desired weight due to the low density of the cross fit plates? It seems like a good idea because the cross fit plates seem to be more safe for the lifter and protects against damaging the equipment.

    The bench press isn't used often in Crossfit because it's an isolated movement. Weight is weight no matter what the plate is, the only reason why this guy has the need to bash the size of plate is because he only cares about size.

      bumper plates can lose weight over time if you have a bunch of guys who can't take a power clean to the ground, and from my experience, I can assure everyone who hasn't used crossfit plates, that their mass is absurdly easy to move in comparison to steel.

    I'm not a cross fitter but I used to compete in olympic weightlifting until I got to tall, but "crossfit plates" are the size of 45s so that if some how you were to drop it and you were laying down flat it wouldn't crush you. Also they bounce because you try dropping metal plates from over your head on the floor

    • grimmister
      grimmister Year ago

      Its basic materials. The more bounce the plates should have, the more rubber you need. Those Eleiko Plates don't have as much bounce as the big black ones. Its just better for you gym floor. Thats why they take up more space.
      Since the average Joe won't be jerking or snatching 200+ kg overhead, there is rarely the need for more space on the bar.

    • Daniel Muñoz
      Daniel Muñoz Year ago +1

      Crossfit plates are not the same like olimpic lifting plates. Olimpic lifting use 25, 20, 10, 5, 2.5 kg plates of iron wrap in plastic, but a 20 kg crossfit plate is like 3 of the same iron weight. Its ridiculous because you cant put 5 of the each side in the bar.

      First, don't bash was you don't understand. Onlympic lifting has been around for over 100 years. That is not the case for professional body building. And Olympic lifters are putting tremendous weight uo, 300+. Not the same. my question is why do you choose to buy something that is a different sport all together? Is it because you simply do not understand it? or is it because it is different? either do not speak volumes to your character. if it is simply because it is not what you do that is the same as bigotry. nice job
