BUMPER PLATES DO NOT MEAN YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BUMP THEM OFF OF THE FLOOR JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT. It's very important that you are in control of the bar at all times; in the air and on the ground. Everyone must understand that not only are you are risk if you don't have control, but it puts others in the gym at risk as well. Bumper plates are meant to be dropped, yes, if you are in a compromised position and are at risk of injury, if something doesn't feel right, or if the weight is uncontrollable. In these circumstances, YES, drop the weight, but if you're just being lazy then it's unacceptable. If you're reading this post and thinking, "oh gosh, they're talking about me", then you're probably right. There are several of you!! Thank you for understanding.
