    Rip discusses how the weight of plates can vary, emphasizing that you can only determine the exact weight of a plate by actually weighing it.

    This is so weird, I searched google to find forum posts about fractional plates. I found this very useful article that you wrote:

    The Correct Use of Fractional Plates | Mark Rippetoe

    Then I go to the q&a section on the forum and there is this post you made today about it. What a coincidence.

    I did it as soon as I bought my cheap equipment, back during the 2020 pandemic. I think this is a good and necessary video by Rip, I can't believe how people usually don't notice this detail.

    I remember that one of the "20 kg" discs arrived with 21.6 and the "10 kg" ones arrived with exactly 9 kg each. Luckily they changed all 3 of them for me at no cost.

    You have to know what you lift, so you have to weigh your plates.
