For any bodybuilder-to-be, weight training and weight plates go hand-and-hand and are a necessary part of equipment sets and weightlifting regimens. From 2.5 lb. to 135 lb., Academy Sports + Outdoors' collection of weighted plates lets you build up your plate collection gradually as you pump up your exercise routine. For safe weight lifting, start with a lower weight and slowly work your way up to the higher weight plates to ensure injuries don't develop during your workout. Made from rubber and steel, our selection of plates is designed to last through many years of curls, squats and extensions, ensuring you don't have to replace your gear often.
For every plate, you need to have a place to store that plate. Let Academy Sports + Outdoors hook you up with our large selection of plate racks, plate stands, squat racks, power racks, bumper racks and weight racks. Power racks offer an intense workout experience, allowing you to perform pull-ups and lift weights in a safe manner. Squat racks are perfect for performing progressively more difficult squats and other exercises. All of our racks let you easily add or remove weight, so you can lighten up the load after a few reps or kick things up a notch by increasing the difficulty. Bumper plates and plate racks are the ideal equipment to stowaway weight plates after each weight lifting session. Be sure to invest in a quality weight bench to reduce the possibility of injury while pumping iron and performing bench presses.
