Powerlifting contests are always done using the metric size plates, yet most commercial gyms use "pound" plates that are usually low quality, meaning inaccurate weights. When you are training for a contest, you want to know that your training weights are EXACTLY what you want them to be, not plus or minus.... anything!
StrongArm plates are not on the IPF approved list (not yet at least), but only because we did not want to pay the enormous fees the IPF wants for this. They ARE made to IPF specifications for calibrated weight, dimensions and colors. So while you cannot use them for competition in CPU contests, they are perfectly acceptable in the warmup room at CPU meets, or in other feds, and home or commercial gyms. You can be assured they are every bit as precise and accurate as the plates you will see on the contest platform. You are just paying considerably less for them!
We've had our plates tested and certified as correct weight, see this page for more information and documentation of the testing. All sets include as many 25 kg's as you select, and a pair each of 20, 15, 10, 5, 2.5 and 1.25 kg plates.
Our online system is not the most sophisticated, and almost always over prices the shipping. Please use our Contact page to enquire about shipping. Include your full address, and how much weight you need.

Mike is a pleasure to deal with, always returns emails and questions in a very short period of time. Excellent customer service
My first time purchasing items from StrongArm... first of all, Mike is an incredibly reliable person to deal with. He responds extremely promptly to questions and inquiries and goes beyond expectations. He makes it seem almost as though you are his only customer with his promptness and explanations, which is very reassuring.
I can not speak highly enough of the quality. Quality is definitely on par with other companies who charge much more than StrongArm. As someone mentioned, they are initially difficult to get on and off the bar, but that may be due to the paint on the inside. Once the paint inevitably scrapes off, the plates slide like butter... not quite like room temperature butter, but butter that has been in the fridge.
Great looking plates and seems to be accurate, came slightly scuffed but they’re coming from overseas, won’t be perfect with so the shipping.
