This is the ABSOLUTE BEST tool for getting you over the hump and making steady gains to your max lifts. Simply, they are just a pair of 1.25 lbs Olympic plates, so nothing really to review. Meaning, I didn’t look for scratches or weigh them for accuracy to the nearest gram. Don’t give a d*** about that, I’m sure they are close enough for what is needed. So, what I offer again is not really a review, but an avenue to getting over plateaus and making steady gains. Many of us have used the the method of going up by 5 lbs on a particular lift on the next workout, for example, you finally have bench press 135 lbs for 10 reps x 3 sets, then following bench day, you try 140 lbs for 10 reps x 3 sets and fail–then FAIL AGAIN for the next month. Increasing the weight by 5 lbs, using two of the traditionally lightest 2.5 lbs Olympic plates found in the gym, can be too much jump in weight for the next workout– especially on particular lifts like bench press, squats, curls, etc. to make consistent gains. So an alternative approach… you currently bench press 135×10 for 3 sets. Mondays are your bench day. Every week (Monday) you add an additional 2.5 lbs to the bar from last weeks bench press weight. Simply this– the first week you bench press for 137.5 lbs for 10 reps , same thing the second week with 140 lbs, third week with 142.5 lbs, and so forth. There are 52 Mondays in the year. If you were consistent and added 2.5 lbs per week, that equates to 130 lbs INCREASE TO YOUR BENCH PRESS IN ONE YEAR. So, starting with a bench press of 135 x 10 on Jan.01,2017 could be 265 x 10 on Jan.01,2018.
