Olympic Plate Workout: Standing Olympic Plate Hand Squeeze: Main Muscle: Forearms. To begin, stand straight while holding a weight plate by the ridge at arm's length in each hand using a neutral grip (palms facing in). You feet should be shoulder width apart from each other. This will be your starting position. Lower the plates until the fingers are nearly extended but can still hold weights. Inhale as you lower the plates. Now raise the plates back to the starting position as you exhale by closing your hands. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions prescribed in your program. Olympic Weights Advantages: Strength - Standard bars will start bending somewhere over 200 lbs, whereas even cheap Olympic bars can take more than that, and high quality Olympic bars are made to hold up to just about anything. Accuracy - Certain models of olympic weights are quality controlled for precise weight. A small inaccuracy isn't likely to matter much with a single plate, but with several plates loaded on one side of a bar, those differences can add up. And it's nice to be able to have an accurate log from one day to the next of how much you're really lifting. Stability. Olympic bars are thicker and heavier on the ends and are much more difficult to tip over due to unbalanced weight when loading heavy plates. No torque - Olympic bars have revolving ends, or sleeves, so that there is no added torque while performing certain exercises such as snatches or cleans where the bar needs to rotate quickly. It even helps for curls. Rack compatibility. Power racks and olympic width bench racks are made to take 7ft bars. Standard bars in most prepackaged weight sets are only 5 ft or 6 ft long. Thickness - The middle portion of the bar, or shaft, is a slightly larger diameter on Olympic bars. A standard bar is typically 1", while Olympic bars can range from 25mm (1") to 32mm (1 1/4"). Some women like 25mm bars. Most men prefer 28mm or larger, depending on the exercise performed. Bumper Plates - Bumper plates are generally only available in olympic. They are plates with a metal hub and several inches of rubber that can handle being dropped to the floor unlike iron plates, and they are all supposed to be the same 450mm (17.72") diameter, no matter the weight, so they can share the shockload. They are popular for CrossFit and other people doing deadlifts, snatches and cleans. Other Options - Grip plates have built-in handles that make the plates much easier to carry safely. Rubber or urethane encased plates combat paint chipping, noise and rust. Olympic plates have the best variety of these options. Variations: You can do both hands at the same time, alternate, or do one hand at a time. Ergonomically designed Rubber Coated Olympic Plates supports a three hole grip allowing a more secure grip during transition of plates.
