Next, We will do a test on some basic properties of our bumper plate.
1. Smell. The rubber plate is strong and durable, but the disadvantage is that it will have a smell, especially in the home gym. I will use my own nose to evaluate above plate. The final conclusion is that PU competition bumper plate and competition bumper plate have no odor, because their material-PU and 100% original rubber, it donnot have any smell. Then the color bumper plate and black bumper plate, almost no smell, and then the crumb bumper plate, because it is made of recycled materials.
2. Smooth. Usually training needs to change the plate frequently, especially weightlifting, it will be more frequent. The smoothness result shows that the competition plate and the PU competition plate are very smooth, and the other plates are slightly stuck, but they are still smooth.
3.Thickness. The thickness of the bumper plate is also a very important indicator. If the bumper plate is too thick, it is not conducive to handling and loading and unloading. The thickness comparison results show that the competition plate is the thinnest, followed by the PU competition plate, and then the color bumper plate and black bumper plate. The last is crumb bumper plate.
4. The sound of exertion. A good lift is often accompanied by a low and pleasant sound of exertion. The sound of exertion also helps our practitioners to perceive the rhythm of exertion better. After hearing the sound of exertion, then stop the excess immediately. The exhibition body quickly enters the support stage, and the sound of the force is produced. The sound effect of the competition plate and the PU competition plate is good.
5. Rebound. If the rebound height is too high, there will be a certain risk of hurting yourself or others. Therefore, in theory, the lower the rebound, the better the safety. The rebound height of the competition plate.

Summary: If the budget is enough, the competition bumper plate is the best choice, it is durable and beautiful. The Cost-effective is colored bumper plate and all black bumper plate, moderate price and moderate performance. If you training on the outdoor, crumb bumper plate is good. If you do not practice weightlifting, only practice squatting, deadlift and bench press, the best choice is PU competition plate.
