What Are Technique Plates? Why Use 10lb Tech Plates?

Tech plates are the predecessors to bumper plates. Before the technology and engineering existed to make high quality, lighter weight plates from rubber  - or what you know as bumper plates - tech plates were the answer to hold a barbell at proper IWF height to start your first pull for the clean or snatch (or the deadlift for that matter).

So why do you want to use them?

  • As a new lifter, you want to lightly load the barbell, but still learn the proper position to start the bottom of their lifts. The 5# tech plates are great for this.
  • You think you can't trust any 10 pound bumpers to be durable.  While it's possible you've had wimpy bumpers in the past, you need to check out our 10# bumpers - any of them, really!  The bumpers are less expensive, and a better option overall.  And durable?  Check  this video out!

Technique Plates

The plates are working out great. They seem very sturdy for only being 5 lbs, nice and stiff. It's great to be able to pull off the floor at the correct weight!

Perfect For My Use - 5 lb. Technique Plates

These are just what I wanted. They look like they could handle being dropped repeatedly from overhead, but I take good care of all my equipment and they are light enough to easily lower to the ground. I also have a couple pair of the 10 lb OFW bumper plates that function 100% for me as technique plates, but I needed some lighter ones too, so I got a pair of 5 lb. technique plates. Mine had no grease and absolutely no smell whatsoever.

Nice plates!!

I have had these plates for about a month and they work just fine. They do smell a bit out of the box, but it's not as big a deal as some of the posts I've read. Great price also.
