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 (by the same factory as a well known brand that is IPF approved). 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. USA customers also can use the contact page.
Our plates are warehoused in Calgary, local customers can pick up and avoid all shipping charges.
Very happy with my purchase of this set. They look beautiful and are a fraction of a price of other brands. Definitely the best deal if you're in the market for calibrated plates.
I've weighed each weight I got in my set and they're all spot on 100%! They look amazing and price is an insane deal
