If you love vintage fitness culture, the single-sided black iron plates must be perfect for you. The old-school weight plates are made of high-quality iron with a matte finish and raised silver lettering. The whole aesthetic look harkens back to the gold age of weightlifting. There is no need to worry if the plates are easy to pick up from the floor since the plates have a deep lip for proper handling. And the diameter of the center ring is 2’’ which makes it fit for the Olympic barbell.
One thing you should be aware of is that cast iron plates are inherently not fall-resistant, so if you intend to buy weight plates for competition or CrossFit training, maybe bumper plates would be a better choice. Iron plates are great for people who want the weight that fits on their bars for squats, low deadlifts, bench presses, overhead presses, curls, barbell lunges, etc.
