Product Description & Reviews
Hampton Fitness HOG-1.25 Olympic Weight Plates - Fractional Weight Plates from Hampton Fitness are 1.25 pound Olympic weight plates made from machined cast iron and used for bench press, deadlifts, squats, and other weightlifting or powerlifting exercises where small incremental weight jumps are needed. Olympic plates in most gyms are not commonly found lighter than 2.5 pounds in weight, meaning a 5 pound minimum jump in weight is required for any lift. Bench press competitions and powerlifting meets are often won or lost by only a few pounds, and sometimes even a fraction of a pound. Thus, when learning technique training or practicing progressive strength training, the smallest weight increment can make a huge difference. Hampton fraction plates in 1-1/4 pound increments allow you to micro-load by 2-1/2 pounds at a time to overcome plateaus and increase your personal best. Hampton Olympic Fractional Plates offer high-quality casting and are machined on all surfaces including center holes. Machined plates are made with higher precision and calibration, meaning they will be not only be more accurate for weight, but more consistent in weight from plate to plate. Also, machining results in fewer sand blasting imperfections and inconsistencies during the manufacturing process. This results in a smoother, more uniform appearance from plate to plate, and flatter sides for flush stacking on an Olympic bar. They are then coated with a baked on enamel Hammertone gray finish for long term indoor application. Baked enamel coatings are much harder and more wear resistant than standard paint common to most economy cast iron plates. Hampton Fractional Olympic Plates have an "old-school" look and feel to them since they are technically "new old stock" - these plates were manufactured in the mid-1990's and have remained factory sealed, brand new and unused for over 20 years!
