The PlateMate Brick is designed specifically for selectorized or stack weight machines. Build strength steadily with 2.5 lb and 5 lb increments instead of the typical 10 or 15 lb increases. When the workout is finished, your brick attaches securely to the framework of the machine, so it is always easy to find.
Microloading with PlateMates is essential at all levels. Beginners are more likely to do exercises properly and avoid injury. Intermediates stay motivated because they experience steady progress. Advanced lifters benefit because microloading helps them break through the plateau to achieve success at the highest level of weight training.
PlateMates are ideal for physical therapy where small increases help patients regain strength without overburdening injured muscles and tendons.
