Iron Woody Fractional Plate Weight Sets offer tremendous flexibility for all lifters at various strength levels. Athletes, youths, women, men, seniors, advocates of progression training, and individuals rehabbing are some of the areas w small weight increases are sometimes desirable. But what puts Iron Woody’s Fractional Plates head-and-shoulders above the competition? (Now pay close attention, because t may be a “pop quiz” at the end.) How about:

Quality – Our plates are made from high-quality, powder-coated steel (not aluminum). Each plate is machine etched with its weight for easy identification. At this time, we offer them in Olympic plate size (2” center diameter). Note: We colored the etching in these pictures so you could see the detail. The actual plates do not have white lettering. Price – Iron Woody offers an eight-plate set for only $49.95+ s/h . Compare our $49.95 price to our competitor's whose sets start off around $100.00 , and go up from t for uncoated, bare plates. (But hey, you can get your initials put on them for a little extra.) And for $180.00 , you can get a set of anodized plates from Black Iron Strength that comes with a nifty storage rack. (Mama mia, that’s a one expensive rack!) Oh, by the way, their plates are made of aluminum. Flexibility – Like all fractional plates, they allow you to make weight increases in as little as ¼ lb. increments on each side of your Olympic bar. That’s just a ½ lb. total increase, versus the normal 5 lb. increase with the usual two 2½ lb. plates.

That also means you can increase weight in ½, 1, 1½, 2, 2½, 3, 3½, 4, 4½ lb. increments before you would get to the usual 5 lb. increase. In some difficult exercise, increasing your weight by 5 lbs. is just not manageable or necessarily safe. It is important to control the weight increases, so that the body is able to grow in size and strength without failure or injury.
