    The only Spectrum healthclub here in town that has them, is at 281

    only 6, 100lb weights which i use,.. for legpressing.
    But i was wondering, if they make a 145 or 150lb plate?

    I know it sounds stupid (yea..)
    But depending if the weight is the same width of the 100lb just more weight in the mid-section (where the fringes are)

    Who would want to have to load them? It wouldn't sell very well.

    With plates that heavy just loading the bar would be a workout in itself!

    well for one, it would be better for powerlifters maybe.
    but yea, i can understand the loading would be difficult

    I already dropped an 100lb plate on my foot

    Unless you have steel toes on, in which case you may be able to keep your toes. Mythbusters did an episode on that. 100 lbs would definitely crush your toe bones.

    Yeah, that's a stupid problem to have....

    Now, imagine 150.
