Troy Weight Plates


#1

today at the ymca, that I lift at, they changed the plates from cast iron to to rubber grip plates. They feel much lighter then the cast iron. Can any one tell me why?


#2

light how?

if it feels lighter on the bar maybe it's because some plates develop rust, etc and become heavier over time.


#3

Pink weighs less than metal


#4

I know that, the weights are coated in rubber. but what is the actual weight difference between 45lb iron plate to rubber coated 45lb plate. so that I can add more weight to balance it out.


#5

....and they say the bodybuilding forum hasn't had enough quality posts lately. I say HOGWASH!!


#6

What weighs more

45lbs of marshmellows or 45lbs of chocolate covered marshmellows or 45lbs of chocolate covered cast iron plates?


#7

So what weighs more, a ton of feathers, or a ton of cast iron?


#8

I'm asking a question, why do you guys have to turn it into a joke


#9

That has to be a trick question. How hungry am I when I'm faced with this hypothetical situation? And are graham crackers and bonfires involved?


#10

My favorite planet is the SUN. It's like the king of planets. But if the Moon was made out of barbeque spare ribs, would you eat it then?


#11

Haikus are easy. But sometimes they don't make sense. Refrigerator.

My dog like to poop, sometimes it tastes like candy, sometimes like poop though


#17

ok OP, its the same shit. 45lbs is 45lbs whether that be of iron, rubber, marshmallows, feathers or big tits.

Just to clear things up cuz idk if u were following these jokes which are actually pretty funny.


#18

Plates covered in ostrich feathers are heavier cus ostriches can't fly. That's really the extent of my knowledge on the subject though =/


#19
