Microloading with PlateMate® is the safe, scientific way to build strength at beginning, intermediate and advanced exercise levels.
Ideal for saving money & space. Our 2.5lb Donut allows for the same benefit of owning a full rack of steel dumbbells for half the price.
Attached to each end of a dumbbell, the 2.5lb donut allows for 5lb increments eliminating the need to buy every other pair of dumbbells. Which also saves you space.
These magnetic add-on weights attach quickly and easily to ends of any iron dumbbells, Olympic bars, and stack weight machine plates.
PlateMates are ideal for physical therapy where small increases help patients regain strength without overburdening injured muscles and tendons.

Ideal For Breaking Plateaus
Micro loading benefits advanced lifters by helping them break through "the plateau" to achieve success at the highest levels of weight training.
New lifters can utilize PlateMates to increase weight gradually, in order to safely lift more weight while minimizing the risk of injury.
Physical Therapists use PlateMates to help their patients incrementally aid more weight to exercises. This allows them to regain strength without overburdening their muscles and tendons.
PlateMates attach quickly and easily to ends of any iron dumbbells, cast iron or steel plates, and weight stack machines.
PlateMates will NOT fit around a 2" Olympic barbell.
PlateMates will NOT magnetize to surfaces coated with rubber, urethane, neoprene, or vinyl.

Easy Storage & Protective Coating
Easy storage! Don't take up extra gym space with additional dumbbells. PlateMates can easily be stored out of the way on a squat or dumbbell rack.
The protective outer coating prevents scratching of dumbbells, equipment, or each other during use or storage.
