I have been trying to find what are the standard colors of Olympic plates according to weight but I have yet to find a site that clears it up for good so I was wondering if anyone can help me.
I know that with the bigger plates, it goes like this:
25 kg- red
20 kg- blue
15 kg- yellow
10 kg- green
But what comes after that?
The gym I go to has the same color scheme for lighter plates and it goes like this:
5 kg- red
2.5 kg- blue
1.25 kg- yellow
There is also a 50 kg plate that is green.
I just wanted to know whether this green-red-blue-yellow and then again green-red-blue-yellow progression in weight plate colors is a standard of is this something that was simply done at the discretion of the manufacturer?
