Plates For Gripping


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I currently train at a commercial gym and a newcomer to the grip world. I'm doing some pinch lifts in one of my grip workouts but the plates the gym have are the rubberised octagonal type that have a small lip that runs on the edge of the plate. Obviously this provides an advantage when pinching, so would this become a hindrance at a later date? Any advice on the matter?

Like Wannagrip said, get real plates. With the 25's you can always add more weight when you are ready using a string or a pipe.
