Microloading with PlateMate® is the safe, scientific way to build strength at beginning, intermediate and advanced exercise levels.

Advanced lifters benefit because microloading helps them break through "the plateau" to achieve success at the highest levels of weight training.

These magnetic add-on weights attach quickly and easily to ends of any iron dumbbells and stack weight machine plates.

PlateMates are ideal for physical therapy where small increases help patients regain strength without overburdening injured muscles and tendons.


  • Includes: (2) Donut Shaped Magnetic Add-On Weights, 1.25 lbs each (2.5 lbs total weight for pair)
  • Dimensions: 4-1/2" (11.43cm) outside diameter, 1-7/8" (4.875cm) inside diameter, 1/2" (1.27cm) thickness


  • Must come in direct contact with metal for an ultimate hold
  • Intended for use with 25 lb. dumbbells and higher. It is important to make sure your dumbbells are large enough to fit the 4"x4" magnetic surface area
  • The PlateMate® patented design works with steel or cast iron plates and dumbbells
  • Will NOT magnetically stick properly to surfaces coated with rubber, urethane, neoprene, vinyl
  • Protective coating on the outer surface (opposite from magnets) prevents scratching of dumbbells, equipment, or each other during use or storage
  • Please note that PlateMate® Donuts will NOT fit around Olympic barbells. They are intended to fit over 1" Pro-style dumbbells! 
  • Do NOT use PlateMates® with kettlebells

    #1 Investment

    I've been working out since I was 16 years old. I'm 55 now. From my many years of experience increasing by large increments can lead to serious injuries (muscle tares, sprains etc.)
    The muscle expands in micro tares when doing resistance training. When you over do it is when injuries come to play. I'm fortunate to learn this early on when I met body builder/pro wrestler Tony Atlas. This is why it's important to increase in small weight increments. These Plate Mates are essential for me and highly recommend to everyone who are serious to not risk injuries. Thank Plate Mate the perfect addition to my Nuobell Dumbbells 👏👏👏💪

    Great Plates

    These plates are a MUST HAVE if you have adjustable dumbbells. On a side note, the customer service of this company is incredible.

    Saved me from having to buy in-between sized dumbbells. Good investment!
