Before being able to properly lift with weights, it is important that you practice posture and technique. Posture and technique are important when it comes to crosstraining. To do so, special training plates are available. Whereas regular 2.5 kg plates are small in diameter, putting the barbell too close to the ground, 2.5 kg training plates have the same diameter as normal bumper plates, thus allowing you to practice more effectively. Actual bumper plates start at a weight of 5 kg. This makes the training plate ideal for beginners, looking to perfect their weightlifting technique. In contrast to bumper plates, training plates are made of plastic and not meant to be dropped.
