Fractional weight plates are essential for anyone training with Olympic weightlifting equipment (bars, bumper plates, etc.), so that you can make smaller jumps in progression, across a broad variety of exercises using Olympic weight equipment.
Also known as micro-loading, all good training facilities and their coaches will know that in order for you to get the best possible gains in your weightlifting, you need to understand how to increase your max efforts by smaller increments over longer periods of time to get those massive PBs (personal bests) in time. Sometimes, at your current PB level of max effort weightlifting, a bigger jump is impossible to gain a new PB, so allowing yourself the option of smaller incremental and still very worthwhile increases is exactly what you’re looking for.
For those reasons, using fractional weight plates is essential, allowing you to make those small increases which ultimately lead to better results long term.
In addition to general training, fractional weight plates allow us to get to the prescribed weights which often come up in CrossFit workouts, like for benchmark workouts and the Opens or Regionals, where the weights are set in pounds and to obtain those exact weights, fractional weight plates are required.
