At Atomicmass, we pride ourselves on producing high end bumper plates that provide the ultimate in performance, quality, durability and aesthetics. With the wide array of bumper plates on the market today, we wanted to give you an inside look as to why Atomicmass bumper plates and bumper plate sets stand out amongst the crowd.
High quality materials
Our bumper plates are made with virgin black rubber, meaning that the rubber is and hasn’t been recycled, degraded or mixed with polymers, glues or other bonding agents. Lesser quality bumper plates are often made from a cocktail of different rubber types and chemicals – you can count on quality with Atomicmass rubber bumper plates because we always use high quality production materials. The fact that Atomicmass uses high quality materials in our production means that they will perform for years to come without bending, degrading, or weight cracking around the inner ring.
Our bumper plates are high performing pieces weightlifting and fitness equipment. The thick virgin rubber on our bumper plates give them the perfect amount of bounce, making them ideal for competition style lifting, deadlifts, overhead type lifts, snatches, power cleans and presses. The ‘bounce factor’ on our bumper plates also makes them safe and user-friendly for beginning weightlifters. The rubber composition of our bumper plates allows them to absorb the impact of the drop to help protect your barbell, the gym flooring, and yourself. Plus, all Atomicmass bumper plate sets are compatible with our line of high end Olympic standard barbells.
In addition to weightlifting, our bumper plates offer a myriad of fitness options for barbell-free training. You can use these bumper plates for CrossFit and boot camp-style training, and for exercises such as Russian twists, farmer’s walks, abdominal work, and more.
A quick guide to choosing the right bumper plate set
Choosing the right bumper plates can seem a bit intimidating – where do you start? Not to worry, it’s actually not as daunting a task as it may seem! All you need to do is consider three factors when investing in a set of bumper plates:
- Current ability
- Future fitness goals
With these three factors in mind, choosing the right set of bumper plates for you will be a breeze. All Atomicmass bumper plates follow the International Weightlifting Federation (IMF) weight plate colour markings:
Green = 10 kg
Yellow = 15 kg
Blue= 20 kg
Red = 25 kg
When choosing weights, buy a pair with a weight that you know you are comfortable lifting. Not only will this serve as a good starting point, these lighter/comfortable bumper plates will be useful for toning exercises and barbell-free weight training.
Once you’ve landed on which weights are suitable for you, you’ll want to choose bumper plates that align with your fitness goals and abilities. Are you an athlete looking to compete? Are you just starting out with weightlifting? Are you aiming to get in shape to increase your overall health? Whichever level you are at and whatever your fitness goals may be, Atomicmass has bumper plates to suit your needs and abilities.
