With Fitbod's Plate Calculator, you will never have to calculate the amount of plates you need on each side to achieve your lift. The plate calculator is only available for exercises that require either an Olympic Bar, Standard Short Bar, EZ Bar, Yoke Bar, Trap (Hex) Bar, Swiss Bar, or Smith Machine (Custom Bar).
You can access the Plate Calculator by swiping right on a set (image below).
The Plate Calculator will display which plates and how many of them you need to load the weight indicated in the exercise details. In the example, Olympic Bar is selected as bar type. Let's say you do not currently have an Olympic Bar available but only a Standard Short Bar. By selecting Standard Short Bar, the plate calculator will recalculate accordingly (image below).
You can also select which plates you have available as well!
