The Body Solid Rubber Grip Olympic Plates leave all behind when it comes to accuracy, quality, price and reliability. The quad grip design used on plates makes them easy and safer to use. The new impact resistant design prevents the plate from getting chipped, flake and rust if your desire is to use them for a long time. Hence, this special design by Body solid is made to handle any wear and tear of local gym abuse. The Rubber Grip Olympic barbell and weight set make the plate set covered in a heavy duty rubber to protect your floor and surface. The new invention of quadruple grip makes the weight plates easy to carry around and let them adjust in aseven-foot-long Olympic bar. The plates are extremely durable having an impact resistant. There is also an integrated metal sleeve attached into each metal plate to make them easily slide onto the bar without any hesitation and oiling, also preventing the bar from scratches.
Due to their high quality and precise manufacturing there is no chance of chipping, rusting or even cracking from these plates in future. So it can withstand any type of gym abuse. Normally, the Rubber Grip Olympic Plates by Body Solid come in three packages having different weight options, starting from 300lbs, 400lbs and 500lbs. Hereby, it is suggested for beginners to go for 300lbs package more because the number of plates in them is therefore less and you’ll be able to use them in your working regularly, despite having more plates in remaining two packages by which you are not even working and they are getting wasted eventually.
There is a thing to note down before purchasing this weight set, is that when the plates arrive at your door step they are fresh and will be coming straight from the factory, so there is a chance of strong odor of paint or rubber which will last only for a couple of days. However, if there is still some kind of smell present even after a day or two then it is suggested to wash them up with vinegar and water then subsequently drying them under the sun. This method will surely solve the issue of odor.

Final Verdict and Review
Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase. The main happiness is due to the Body Olympic bar which gave a great feel in my hands along with thecomfort, also I didn’tfeel any painon my back while I did deadlift or bicep curls. The threading and etching on the grip was brilliant. No bar in the gym equipment category can match its quality except of its price which in my opinion was a bit higher.Even by its looks, you’ll feel the build quality i.e. Sleeves and knurling.
