Workout Gloves

Basically, every time i workout with the metal weights my hands start to sweat and the grip on the dumbell is loose and can't do as many reps since the dumbell like slides off -_-.

Want to get some workout gloves but not sure which ones there's so many to choose from..

If you use workout gloves please let me know which ones and what would you rate them, thank yooooouuuu

I bought Harbinger gloves a few years ago and they have fantastic wrist support. Even though I don't wear gloves anymore, I'll still wear these once in a while when my wrist starts acting up every once in a while. Heck, I wear them to work sometimes when my wrist is sore. (Swinging a hammer with a sore wrist can be painful)

If you really want to improve your grip, don't use gloves. Don't use straps either. Use chalk if you have to, either way without gloves you'll adapt and get a lot stronger with your grip.

+1 for harbinger gloves from sportchek, well worth the investment.

like others have mentioned, go gloveless for increase grip/strength but i go with the gloves for the safety of the wrist support and that my girls dont like calluses on my hands

i started going gloveless like a year ago. its a lot better for your grip but i also swear by my pair of harbingers. the wrist support is great but it really hinders your wrist/grip development.

Sweats his problem I don't think chalk is gonna solve that. Gloves are more practical.
Any nike workout glove will do. Just head down to metro or something and check out sportchek or Nike.

Not sure why people keep crying out for chalk. For all you know his gym may not allow chalk to be used.

All the current Nike gloves are garbage. They'll get destroyed in a few months. If your going to purchase Nike, try and find the ones pictures below. They're better than the current ones which will tear on you easily.

You can also get invisble climbers chalk if your gym doesn't allow the real stuff

or if your gym complains, just tell them cocaine is a hell of a drug

My Harbingers didn't hold up to deadlifting. I got some Nike gloves (not Jsilvers') that have more padding and stitching near the palm area which have lasted me a lot longer than the Harbingers.

i don't know about you but for me, there came a point where gloves didn't cut it for deadlifting anymore. you just cant get a good grip on it with gloves when you go heavy so it either comes to going barehand with or without chalk or using straps (not that i use them).

I've had both the Nike's shown above and the Harbingers ... the nike's are nice and thin, but they have a tendency to rip (I had the exact ones posted above). They also don't provide much of a wrist support. The seam on them that ripped on both my gloves was the seam that connects the inside palm of the glove to the thumb.

The Harbingers are very nice, and I can actually lift a bit more (when I started out) with them on because they help support my wrists (especially when doing chest press with dumbbells). Problem with the habingers is that the material is very thick (so it's very durable) but it can bunch up, and make little folds that hurt like a bitch with a heavy dumbbell pushing it into your skin. Harbingers are way more durable though! Mine are still going strong after a year of on/off use.

i run a set of these



no wrist wraps or anything, just simple gloves

i used to go gloveless but ive been wearing them more and more lately. they are nice on pressing exercises as they give a nice grippy area for the bar to sit in so it doesnt slide or roll around. alot of the bars at my gym dont have much knurl left so they dont grip as well, gloves really help for that. with gloves, the bar stays where i put it in my hand whether im pulling or pushing or whatever.

my grip is really fucking good so i dont care about developing a tiny little bit of shit grip from not using gloves. so the pros out weigh the cons for me

as for deadlifts tho, no gloves and i use chalk

Harbinger are solid gloves, not sure why I never purchased them from the start. Thinking about grabbing some. Where can I get them locally?
