PlateMate Weight Magnets

In Boot Camp, Corrective Exercise, Fitness, Resources by Angela


These have to be some of new favorite training tools.  Most dumbbells and plates increase in increments of 5 lbs.  For some movements, that can be just too much of a jump.  You should be making progress every time you go in the gym, be it one more rep or one more pound, but you can’t jump up 5 lbs. every time.  For those times when you stall, these little guys are the best!  I have used these things on everything from working my way up on shoulder presses with dumbbells to Barbell rowing.  They come in  1 1/4 lb. sizes (and probably more) and I believe the bars(as seen in the second picture, the ones that attach to cable stations) come in increments of 2.5 lbs.  WELL worth the investment!
