The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    any cheap magnetic plates out there?

    any of you guys own magnetic plates for microloading? i think i am going to buy some. any decent prices for them? first website i really looked at had them for ~$13 shipped for a 1.25 lb plate
    attaching one plate to each dumbell wont really change where i need to grip etc. since its such a tiny weight, correct?
    should i just order two 1.25 lb plates and then decide if i should order two more 1.25 lbs or two 2.5lbs later?
    any of you use these magnetic plates for other exercises besides dumbells i.e. bench press? or are they so small its not worth it for big compound movements like that? just wondering cause they have a hexagon version of the weight and donut version (which could slide onto a barbell) and i wanna see if its practical to use it for other things besides dumbells

    thanks for any help

    if you're going to need 1.25 lb plates, then just make them at home. Find something 1.25lbs heavy and tie it to a piece of string. then string it to the bar. Isn't a metal sprring collar/clip weigh like 1 lbs?

    They aren't magnetic, they just fit on the bar like a normal weight.

    just read a little "disclaimer" on plate mates. it says not to be used with plastic dumbells or rubber coated dumbells.
    the ones in my gym are rubber, so will it not stick at all? anyone know? are dumbells rubber coated or rubber the whole way through?
