Fractional Plate Set in Pounds
$78 & FAST, FREE SHIPPING
Fractional plates are great when you are stalled out on lifting heavier- at some point you need to make gains in 1-2 pound increments or less. This set of fractional plates from Fringe Sport includes a pair each of 1/4 (white), 1/2 (green), 3/4 (blue), and 1 (red) pound plates.
Fractional plates are traditionally used when an athlete is making linear progression in their lifts, putting more and more weight on the bar week by week. They are also helpful to bring a bar up to RX weight, e.g., a 15kg "women's" bar actually weighs about 33 pounds, so a pair of 1# weights brings it to 35#. Additionally, individuals rehabbing use fractional plates.
Color coding is nice. Paint chips a little but no big deal. Fractional plates are very helpful for someone over 60 years of age doing any type of linear progression. I bought from Fringe because of top notch service and fast shipping on previous orders and had the same experience with this order.
Works as advertised
We've had lots of small PRs with these weights. As usual, A quality product from Fringe. Thank you!
Got these a few weeks ago. Have been using them a lot. Not sure if it's just psychological, but I enjoy being able to add just a pound to the lift whenever I can. It makes it feel like I'm progressing versus just using the same weight for many workouts until I feel I'm able to add 5-10 lbs to the bar. Which often is too much if I start to get impatient about my lack of progress. They came surprisingly quickly and ahead of schedule. They were very well packaged so there was no damage. They're a good quality. I like them and would recommend them if you're in the market for fractional plates.
Use them daily!! Great price!!
