Hey All, My gym only has db's that go up to 125 pounds, and pretty soon I'm going to need more weight than that. Do any of you know where I can buy 5 and 10 pound magnetic plates to add to the ends of the db's?
I googled this, and all I found was mini weights, under a pound, from piedmont.
You can look for PlateMates(theplatemate.com), but they only come in up to 2.5lb increments. Suppose you could buy a couple sets, but you can only put one platemate on each end of the DB, you can't stack them. Not sure you'll find anything bigger.
I used to have those but I stupidly forgot to bring them home with me from the gym one day and they attached to a new owner. :-\ Actually you can stack them, but the magnet isn't too strong when you do that and it's not highly recommended. Also after a year or two of heavy use the magnets will wear out and get weaker, so you'll have to buy new ones.
