Fractional weight plates are great for adding incremental weight to the barbell. We often talk about progressive overload in weightlifting. In other words adding a little bit of weight each session to your lifts. Many lifters do this until they plateau. If we could keep adding weight every week forever we could all bench press cars! Sometimes taking a smaller jumps is needed depending on the exercise or workout regimen.

When you hit that plateau and may need to consider fractional plates to keep the gainz rolling. As an example maybe you can’t get the reps you want with a 340lb bench press so you do 337.5lbs to get all your reps instead using 2 of the 1.25lb plates. That’s just one possible option. The fractional plates can be used for PR attempts too.

Dumbbells typically go up by 5lbs. So 25,30,35,40lb etc. Depending on the exercise it can be tough to go up by 5lbs on dumbbell exercises. That’s where the Micro Gainz 1.25lb dumbbell plates come into play. You can easily clamp them onto the handle of your favorite dumbbells to add incremental weight. Thus a 20lb dumbbell is now a 22.5lb dumbbell.

Once again using the progressive overload principle we can add a little but of weight to your dumbbell making the exercise more manageable. This means better form and more gainz for you! Check them out as they are the best way to add weight to dumbbells!

A Micro Gainz GymPin helps you add incremental weight to your weight machines. This is done by sliding your Gympin into a weight stack on a weight machine. Then you can add any Olympic plate to the pin to add additional weight. So now you do not have to worry about those 10-15lb jumps that are typical on weight machines. With the GymPin you can make 2.5lb jumps or 5lb jumps etc. It is a great way to break a plateau on your weight machine!


The best way to add incremental weight to your dumbbells is with the patented Micro Gainz Dumbbell Micro Plates!
