Competition Iron Plates
In addition to the rubber bumpers, smaller competition iron plates can be used to add weight in small increments to the bar. The colour designations for these iron plates are as follows: 1kg is green, 1.5kg is yellow, 2kg is blue, 2.5kg is red, 5kg and 0.5kg are white. It is useful to note the colour assignment of these iron plates is consistent with the heavier bumper plates (i.e. 1kg and 10kg are green, 1.5kg and 15kg are yellow, etc.).
