Watson Olympic Micro Plates – The easy way to get stronger
The Watson Olympic Micro Plates are one of the best investments you can make if you are looking to increase the weight you are able to lift.
In any given exercise, as you approach the limit you are capable of lifting, adding the usual 1.25 kg to each end of the bar will quickly kill any chance of further progression.
The Watson Olympic Micro Weights allow you to add as little as 0.25 kg of weight to the bar, which over the course of a few weeks adds up to a big increase that would otherwise have been unachievable.
Many of our customers have told us how they have trained past their usual limits for many weeks while constantly adding small amounts of weight to the bar, typically ending up with an additional 25-35 kg added to their squat, 15-25 kg added to their bench press, etc. before ending the cycle.
Watson Olympic Micro Plates are machined from solid bright drawn steel bar to an accuracy of 0.02 of a gram and are stamped with the weight.
They are not cast so the weight is far more accurate and they will never break.
Watson Olympic Micro Plates are sold in pairs.
We recommend 2 pairs of 0.5 kg (red) and 1 pair of 0.25 kg (blue) which will allow increments of 0.5 kg to be added to the bar up to the usual 1.25 kg plates found in most gyms.
The 0.125 kg (green) Watson Olympic Micro Plates are great for pushing a training cycle even further (especially on smaller exercises) or for adding to dumbbell bars.
