Rogue Technique Plates

Rogue Technique Plate - Pair - 2.5 KG
Rogue Technique Plate Pair - 5KG

Rogue Technique Plates

Constructed from a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic, Rogue Technique Plates have the same 450mm outside diameter as standard full-size Olympic bumper plates, but in a much lighter, more manageable weight range: 2.5 & 5 KG. This enables beginner or rehabbing athletes to practice their starting movements from the proper height off the ground (whether it be clean, snatch, or even deadlift) before transitioning to actual bumpers.

Rogue Technique Plates are sold in pairs and make a great complement to our line of exclusive Technique and Junior Barbells. They’re also easy for anyone to load/unload due to their light weight and a grip-friendly raised lip.

Recommended Use: Technique Plates should be used indoors and dropped only on a proper training platform / rubber matting.

  • 1Help Refine Your Form

    Because our Technique Plates are built to the same dimensions as full-size competition bumpers,they allow users to load a bar as light as possible while still developing proper form on their Oly lifts, making it much easier to transition to heavier lifts with actual bumper plates down the road.

  • 2KG Options

    Rogue Technique Plates are sold in pairs and come in KG increments. All the available sizes listed below have a 450mm outside diameter and a 50.2mm center hole.

  • 3Quality Construction

    HDPE is a highly durable thermoplastic polymer, giving Rogue Technique Plates the ability to sustain regular high-impact use, whether in a home gym or in use by many athletes in a larger facility. The design also includes a groove around the full circumference of the plate, making it easier to grip, pick-up, load, and unload. For long-term performance, these plates should only be used indoors on proper rubberized flooring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for My Kids! These plates are not bumper plates, but are a solid plastic and seem as durable as bumper plates. They are the same height as a bumper plate, just without the weight. We got the Rogue Junior Bar to go with the 5 lb. red plates, which is perfect for teaching our younger children how to properly lift. They also work well to teach my wife how to do movements like the snatch and power cleans, which she never did before because of the weight. Absolutely a great product and a fantastic solution for our family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these plates Great for learning clean and snatch. I wanted something that was light but still started the barbell 6 inches off the ground. Plus these plates are really wide so they distribute the landing when you drop the bar after your rep. I also have a 55 lb pair of bumpers but that’s too heavy to start off. These are great for barbell rows since I can’t do more than 135 lbs yet. Also I feel really cool overhead pressing the barbell when these are on, which is more important than everything else above.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done These are great for warm-ups as well as for working on technique. It's mostly plastic with some filling, and the only reason for taking away a star was one plate had extra filling coming out on the inside where it goes on the bar sleeve. Had to dremel it down for it to go on the bar smoothly. Other than that, gets the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for training I use these 3-4 days per week for Olympic lifting. They do look like toys but they do the job of elevating the bar enough to get a good snatch position when pulling from the ground (until I’m strong enough to use 10kg plates for all my lifts).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for light weight but counterbalanced These plates are fantastic for metabolic workouts where the bar needs to be light but also sit at proper height off the ground, as well as move around the floor easily. They are perfect for this purpose, but they also are counterbalanced, so placing them on the floor or on a plate peg on the wall results in them spinning until their weight settles, so they don't seem like their 5 pounds is evenly distributed throughout the plate.
