I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment Are bumper plates “lighter”?
If we change the question to "why might I be experiencing this" (which is the question people are answering, anyway) it's perfectly in-scope. Editing the question to match would be swell.

@DaveNewton Try bounce-deadlifting 1.5xBW or bounce-power-cleaning 0.75BW for reps with iron on dirt versus bumpers on a platform. That's pretty empirical. Do you mean measured?

Is this happening on the first lift, or could this be due to bouncing on the second and successive reps?

@portabella I don't mean to connote anything negative by using the word "tricks". I mean like magic-eye pictures, or thinking "up! up! up!" on the down phase of a press. Tricks that work are good!

@DaveNewton Yes, you're correct--I meant 25 pound bumpers (same height as 45s) compared to 25 pound iron (usually significantly shorter, except for cases of competition powerlifting).

If this is about pinning the purported difference on physical constants, this would be better suited for physics.SE (where it will get summarily dismantled, unless I'm egregiously wrong) or skeptics.SE (where it will get closed because there's no notable claim).

How much weight are we talking here, and how much weight had you been doing previously?
