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 meet, 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.

Our plates are warehoused in Calgary, local customers can pick up and avoid all shipping charges.
All prices are for pairs of plates.
Exceptional service and shipping. The plates are being put to good use and we are very happy thus far. Will definitely be expanding the set in the future.
Excellent prices for calibrated plates, and they got here quickly!
After using mine for about 7-8 months i love my set! The only issue i could see is the paint chips fairly easily, but thats a very minor detail.
They look and feel amazing. No excessive play when on a barbell either.
Thank you strongarm sport for always providing the best bang for your buck in regards to strength training.
Best price for the quality. I ordered more plates after receiving the 20kg. Definitely worth it
Another solid product from strongarm. I was apprehensive about the plates because I had heard issues about plugs that weren't flush and paint issues. But the final plates to complete my set were available so I went for it. I received plates with plugs that weren't flush like others had mentioned but a quick unscrew with a flat head screw driver, adjustment or removal of some of the small metal balls inside and rescrew and the plugs site perfectly flush and tight. The paint is perfect with no obvious runs or harsh surfaces. I can't believe people were making such a big deal out of the plugs when it's a thirty second fix.
