The high quality calibrated comp plates, like Eleiko, Ivanko (etc) are normally milled to a very close spec/tolerance.
The rest of the cheaper cast plates are all over the map...

Bench / Pressing

(1st time doing "real" barbell  bench in around 6 months). Delt is feeling much better.
Didnt push it but moved up a little from the 135 I had been "testing it" with. (Which hurt BTW).
Today was pretty much pain-free up to 225 lbs where I stopped. Started with 135, then added 10-lbs a side until 4-10's were added. (215 lbs).
Last set I added a 5-lb per side to get to 225...

-4 sets each

Bench
Smith Inclines
Smith Close-Grips
D-Bell Bench (100's felt OK)
JM Press
Machine Press (rear delts)

Rev-Hypers
Ab Crunch

Not that it matters since I'm not professional, but I was lucky to score some Pendlay Elite bumpers off FB Marketplace from a guy who was moving across country and wanted to dump them.  Those are pretty cool and I assume true to weight but never weighed them.

Those are nice, great find... I have 10 of the Ivanko's off Craigslist for 200.00 (a steal). (Pre-RONA)
These things are right on. I also have around 8 of the old machined/milled York plates which are very accurate as well.

I painted mine black, I dont like the original color..

Sweet.

Thanks, I pretty much gamified building my home gym - I'd set a target price, and wait until I found something at that price, sometimes waiting years, but got it.

My latest quest is to find a 5-50lb full dumbbell set that I can acquire in trade, and eventually make it end up close to free.

Bench workout 6.

Late sets went up so easy.












Because we fucked up and had 10lbs less than I was supposed to use.

So I re-did, and it was not easy.
