Rogue LB Training 2.0 Plates
Rogue LB Training 2.0 Plates are built similarly to the very popular Black Training Plates from Rogue. The main differences are a slightly lower durometer rating, a different coating on the center hub, different aesthetics, and price (these include shipping).
These plates are ideal for any lifting style… Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, general-purpose, CrossFit, etc…
This is the LB variant – you can read about the KG version here.

Features & Highlights
- Minimal Bounce – These plates have a 90 durometer rating, which makes for a very low bounce. This rating is in-line with similar style plates – the higher the rating, the harder the material and the lower the bounce.
- Zinc-Plated Steel Disc – The Rogue LB Training 2.0 Plates have a zinc-plated center hub that, in my opinion, doesn't look as nice as the chrome-plated hubs. The hole opening measures 50.4mm, which is standard for this style of plate. This creates a snug fit on an Olympic-sized barbell.
- Raised Flanges– The outer edges of the plates are raised to help when picking the plates up from a flat position or otherwise carry them. There is also a raised flange around the center disc to prevent metal-on-metal contact and to extend the life of the plates.
- Weight Offerings – Rogue LB Training 2.0 Plates can be purchased from 25LB up to 55LB and they're sold in pairs. They're also available in sets ranging from 210LB up to 320LB. Unlike the Black Training Bumpers, all of these plates ship free, not just the sets.
- Plate Width – A great benefit of these plates is their width. Their slim profile means you can load more weight onto the bar. The 45LB plates are slightly thinner than the Black Training Plates and the 35LB plates are very slightly thicker. Plate widths are as follows:
- 25LB – 1.25″
- 35LB – 1.75″
- 45LB – 2″
- 55LB – 2.50″
- Durability – These plates are very durable, whether in a commercial setting or in a home gym. They are built to handle a lot of drops while maintaining performance.
- Weight Tolerance – The Rogue LB Training 2.0 Plates have a very accurate weight tolerance of +/- 15 grams.
- Aesthetics – These plates look nice, but in my opinion, they don't look as nice as the Black Training Bumpers since these don't offer the striped edges or the raised lettering.
What They're Saying at Roguefitness.com
Rogue LB Training 2.0 Plates receive positive feedback from users. With an average rating of 4.8/5, here are some of the things people have said at roguefitness.com.
- “Bought a pair of 35s when I saw them in stock a couple months back when all I had for my home gym was a barbell. They arrived within a week and were in great condition. As I've had some time to use them, I am now even more impressed. They look absolutely fantastic, so good that I had to buy a pair of 25s when I saw those come in stock. They have a true dead bounce so that rapid cycling for Olympic lifts is feasible. They are nice and thin so that I can fit as much weight on the bar as I can lift and all my plates fit on just 2 sets of the adjustable rack storage channels. And they were a great price compared to similar products (including some of Rogue's other Training or Competition plates) with included shipping. I'll definitely be looking to grab some more of these plates in the future.”
- “Bought several 45 lb plates since my garage floor even with a stall mat was not liking my lifting (can't build a platform due to space/use restrictions). Plates are great, thin enough to get plenty of weight on the bar plus durable enough to use for Olympic lifts, deadlifts and farmer walks up and down the street. The plates are very, very consistent in terms of actual weight. I went a cheaper route initially from another retailer and got 41, 42, 41, and 50 lb plates.”
- “this plate is beautiful (never thought I would say this about weights), and very well built. fits perfectly, and i have dropped it many times, not a scratch. and I noticed when mountain (the GoT actor) was breaking the world record for dead-lift, he had the same Rogue plates. excellent quality.”
- “I bought these plates two month ago. They have a solid interior and work well with my Olympic barbell and Trap HD Bar. Love the design.”
- “Had been thinking of setting up gym in garage even before pandemic. Build quality has been good so far and they look great. I am long time weight trainer; however, novice to Olympic lifting. Great starter set matched with an Ohio power bar, squat stand and bench. I don't care if my gym ever opens again.”
- “Works great, well made. Minimal bounce. Customer Service was top notch.”
- “I love these, way better than my Hi-Temps; fit more weight, low bounce. There is some gassing off issues though, so if your sensitive to that, something to think about.”
