Large Light Olympic Plates?


I'm trying to learn the power clean, but it is difficult for me to learn without having plates on the bar. The problem is if I put large plates, like 45lbs, it is too heavy for me to learn the movement.... are there plates that weigh say 10lbs but are as large as 45lb plates? If so, what are these plates called so that I can buy them?


Yes, they're called Olympic Bumper Plates. I'm sure if you looked on websites like Ivanko you will find them.


Thank you.
