if you can not manage 135 your F'd in general.... unless very young or a woman.

just saying, unless you've been bed ridden from birth, you should be able to get a plate.
Agreed, you should be able to manage that. It's a good place to start because of the bar height and such. Face it, once you get 135, the bar ain't getting any higher or lower.. I think though that it would be cool to see training plates used for younger or weaker trainees. I'm thinking of investing in a pair of 10 pounders once my daughters are ready to get serious. They can be used to train power cleans and rows also.
