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.. Average gym weights are plus/minus 3%. So that 600 squat you want could be anything from 582 to 618. Nearly 40lbs range! Unacceptable.
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, and can now be used in CPU contests, or in other feds, and home or commercial gyms. You are just paying considerably less for them!
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.
Our plates are warehoused in Calgary, local customers can pick up and avoid all shipping charges.
Note: Record plates that are shown in the photos are NOT included in sets, but are available here.
Garrett Bentley (Barrie Barbell, Team Canada Powerlifting Coach) recommended these plates to me for my training within the Ontario Powerlift Association /Canadian Powerlifting union… The quality of these plates is very good, and the overall cost was excellent. I look forward to training with my new equipment and further purchasing other quality products from StrongArm.

Like the title states, I doubt you'll find better calibrated plates at this price. I received them within a week of ordering which was nice.
-Steel calibrated plates at a great price
-You get 100kgs more for the same price as Rogue plates
- The inner part of the plate (that has contact with the collar) does chip away all it's paint
- Some of the 25kgs plates are very snug but are easily broken in with normal use or some filing.
- The paint / colors are different then what you would expect
The cosmetics is really where I see the differences between higher end kg plates and the Strongarm plates. I personally bought these plates since I didn't want to keep commuting 1.5hrs total to my local powerlifting gym. Strongarm ultimately made it possible for me to train from home with IPF spec equipment.
Great plate set. Love that I get to pick my 25 count, not all sellers allow that. I wish the inside of the plate, the part rubbing against the collar, wasn't painted, just because if rubs off quickly.
