When weightlifting, you want to focus on your workout. You don’t want to spend time calculating which weight plates you need to load onto your barbell. The RackMath barbell calculator is the simple solution to this problem. It calculates what weight plates you need to load onto your bar to achieve your desired weight.
Stop doing the math in your head. The plate calculator will do the math for you. If you are into weightlifting or powerlifting and consistently perform heavy lifts like the squat, deadlift and bench press, then you won’t find a better weight plate calculator. Simply enter the weight you want to lift, and instantly you’ll know how to load your bar. It makes a perfect companion to weightlifting programs such as Starting Strength 5x5 or Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1.
Don’t step into the squat rack with the wrong weight by accident. You can count on the RackMath barbell calculator to make sure you’re loading your bar correctly.
Other weightlifting plate calculators just assume you have certain plates and unlimited stock. We know that’s simply not true. This is why Rack Math is designed to let you set your own equipment inventory. Select pounds or kilograms and choose which weight plates (and how many) are available to you.
Fractional and non-standard weight plates:
Other weightlifting calculators do not include fractional plates or lesser used weight plate denominations. RackMath's inventory offers fractional plates as well as a large number of denominations.
