You probably know it too; the majority of people who practice Weightlifting, Powerlifting and Fitness tends to increase the lifted load too quickly. This excessive speed, must be said, should not be considered only in terms of time. Sometimes the load-jump doesn't just come in too short of a time. No, sometimes this jump is simply too long! Many, to improve their performace in Weightlifting and Powerlifting, out of nowhere add 5kg or 10kg plates, finding themselves lifting 10kg or 20kg more than what they are used to. Is this really the best way to advance in this discipline? Many experts think this is the wrong way. Yet, in many cases these load-jumps are the only possible way, for the simple fact that the gym to which you are addressing to or your Home Gym do not have plates weighing less than 5kg or 10kg. How is it possible to load less kilograms in this case? There is only one solution: small plates! We speak of course of the micro-loads, or about all those small weights for barbells inferior to 5kg. We therefore speak of 250g, 500g, 750g, 1kg, 1.25kg. 2Kg and 2.5kg plates. The possibility, therefore, is to increase the lifted load in a sensitive but constant way, week by week, thus avoiding trauma and important weight differences. We at Lacertosus, have prepared several lines of micro-loads for you: here's how to choose the most suitable for you and your gym.
Single and Micro-Load Sets
Here, you can find all the micro-loads you will need for your Weightlifting and Cross Training exercises. Our Small Plate training line is made of monobloc micro-loads, with white varnish relief writing, for maximum visibility of the load on both sides, for an eased weight selection when needed. The Competition Micro Plate line, on the other hand, includes perfectly calibrated, resistant Fractionals, with attention to the smallest details, even aesthetically. Above all, extremely thin, in order to never encounter space problems on the barbell! Again, for those who want to have all the smallest micro-loads for the most sensitive variations for a maximal weight lifting, we have the sets of Fractional Plates, with 250g, 500g, 750g and 1kg plates.
