        0.5lb Fractional Plates — your secret weapon for hitting new personal bests

        Listen, buddy — I get it. You never thought that you’d need smaller weight plates than 2.5lbs. After all, change plates cover your bases pretty well already.

        But haven’t you wondered why your arm and shoulder strength always lag behind? Sure, these are smaller muscle groups than those in your legs. But their lack of progress mostly boils down to getting pummelled by the same loading scheme used to progress squats and deadlifts, by adding 2.5-5lbs per side.

        Instead of forcing 5-10lb jumps on overhead presses and biceps curls, these lifts should be loaded in a more sensible way — by adding weight in smaller increments of 1-4lbs.

        Benefits of Fractional Weight Plates

        Our fractional weight plates are a must-have for your gym, here’s why they deserve your hard-earned cash.

        • More personal records. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced lifter, your lifts will eventually plateau. If adding 2.5lb plates to each side of the bar causes you to fail the lift, you can load a fraction of that instead and continue getting stronger. Plus, a 1lb PR is easier to hit than a 5lb PR — yes, it still counts!
        • Accuracy matters. When you’re adding .5lb to each side, you better believe that accuracy is critical. These cast iron plates have a guaranteed 1% tolerance, but many of our fractional plates are within 10 grams of their listed weight. Looking for heavier, affordable weight plates? Be sure to check out our Mighty Grip iron plates.
        • Perfect fit. In an act of desperation, lifters often resort to using washers or magnets to create makeshift 0.5 lb plates. While these technically “work”, they either don’t fit on the sleeve of your barbell or they fall off mid-set. With these .5lb fractional plates, they’ll actually fit on the sleeve of your standard barbell and stay on as they should.
        • Easy micro-loading. Adding just 5lbs to your 50lb barbell curl is a whopping 10% weight jump. No wonder smaller muscles lag so far behind! Fractional plates make it easier to load exercises that work smaller muscle groups like your biceps, triceps and shoulders. By micro-loading in 1, 2, 3 or 4lb increments, you get fewer plateaus and more progress.
        • Sleek craftsmanship. Our fractional plates are designed to creatively include the words “Bells of Steel” and our logo, so you can show your support while you lift. Plus, their design helps them double as ninja throwing-stars (just kidding, throwing these plates is not recommended).

        Fractional cast iron plates, with a guaranteed weight tolerance of +/- 1%. These fit standard 2” barbells and an entire set include eight (8) fractional plates that weigh .5 lbs each (4 pounds total).
