    Bumper plates have countless benefits that extend past just helping you keep fit and build up your strength. At a glance, Olympic bumper plates are made of high-density rubber and tend to be used in sports like CrossFit where the barbell is dropped after heavy reps or sets. One of the main benefits of bumper plates is that when you drop them, the rubber minimises damage to the plates and your floor. Due to the material being so dense, they absorb the impact of the drop and bounce lightly back up, meaning the risk of injury or damage is reduced. 

    Olympic bumper plates can be used to do a variety of exercises, including squats, cleans, snatches, hip thrusts and more. Whether you are looking for an extra set of plates, or even a bumper plate and barbell set, our range at World Fitness Australia is sure to have the equipment you need.
