Couldn't think what section fit it?

Perfect for carrying your handbag

Shoulda bought myself some for when I went shopping with the wife boxing day, ordered 2 for next year ;o)

Not a bad price but for weight lifting I'd reccommend people don't usse gloves as you'll get a better, stronger grip this way. Sometimes you hands can get sweaty and loosen your grip but liquid chalk before lifting is fantastic and non-messy! myprotein.co.uk sell it and its a great product.

Hmmm, from the perspective of a 'normal' non-weightlifting person, the concept 'kind-of' works. (need to remove -full- gloves to work phone etc.) but since this 'cold wave' it fast diminishing...

Bloody useless sailing gloves!

These are good for the gym. Stop blisters from lifting weight.

Good Price. Voted Hot.

I too, back this up. You can't wrap your hands fully around the bar with gloves, and your grip can't fully develop. Weight lifting should be done without gloves. if you're worried about blisters, use CHALK! It fills in the crevices in your hands.

Calluses at the bottom of your fingers show that you are working hard at the gym! :-D

I don't mean to be callus, but these are bloody pointless.

got some yesterday, the thickness is good enough, if your lifting 10-20 KG dumbells

Good price. but they arent good for grip!

Thanks OP! great gloves for weight training - very comfortable.

If you're worried about your grip strength not improving, do some grip work!

Depends. Some bars are knurled really deeply. Too deeply - particularly when new. I have shredded all my callouses plus a good few layers of skin on those. Bleeding hands are not welcome at any gym.
Gloves are also useful when the bar is a little too small in diameter for comfort. No amount of chalk or anti-sweat gunk is going to fix that.

Apology accepted. Just don't do it again.

these gloves arnt great, had a pair already. but 2.49 is a bargain so its hot

ive used these before. they start tearing up after awhile depending on how often u train and how heavy you go. defo worth gettin tho cuz the padded grip is great.

These are really useful! Also £2.49 per pair in sports direct (different make same thing)

Its true that using gloves make lifting harder. Simply physics tells you the wider you have to grip an object, the less grip you will have. Its not about being hardcore or the like, its about lifting a weight that will cause micro tears in the muscle and allow growth (thats why we are at the gym, right?). If you can't grip it because the object is wider than it was then these aren't helping.

I'd personally recommend liquichalk or some straps argos.co.uk/sta…htm

For the price, they are ok gloves tho. I've used and they rip pretty quick but remain usuable in the most part...

using gloves at the moment but think il give this liquid chalk a shot - looks god, thanks for heads up

I don't use gloves, it increases the circumference of the bar for me making it more difficult, yeh I have a **** load of calluses but who cares.

If you want better grip start using chalk or deadlifting without straps.

Thanks op! These are perfect for my multigym

lol these gloves will add what? 1cm at best to the width, making next to zero difference what so ever. i dont advocate using gloves, but the reasons you have given are completely wrong.

fatgripz.com/

youtube.com/wat…ted

the bigger the bar, or the bigger you have to grip the better it is for working out and your grip training. gloves on the other hand do the opposite, but its more due to your hand not gripping the bar correctly.

the fatter the bar, the better it is for grip and bodybuilding.

the less natural the grip (i.e. using gloves) the worse it is for grip, but should have no affect on bodybuilding.

Are you being daft here? I'm talking about lifting - who needs gloves for curling a BB or benching?

Sorry I utterly disagree. I already use 2" olympic bars so are fat enough for good grip without being too wide to effect my grip. It may be a CM or two but when at the limits of your grip its the difference between a lift and failing the lift.

The only reason peoples hands and skin get damaged is because they allow the bar to slide around and rub at the skin. I've probably got amongst the strongest hands on here and have literally a spot on my my middle fingers first joint where the skin is a little calloused. The rest of my hands my skin feels a little thicker but that's it.

Chalk, as many have suggested, helps with sweat and the sliding around. Look at the very best in your sport (be it darts, snooker, what-have-you) and see what they do. For us it's lifting weights with a view to adding muscle, getting strong, shaping up. Now look at the best of those that do that on here and in our Iron World. How many use gloves?

Sponges, can be used as a 'thickener' as you have to squeeze through a thick one to hold onto a bar. So can a folded towel or proper sheepskin or working mans gloves. The action of 'squeezing through', the 'give' as it were, makes the movement harder and so adds something. But as most lifting gloves are little more than a single layer of leather or the like designed to protect the soft handed, none of the above applies.

All things being equal you want skin on steel with a light rubbing of chalk. Grip the bar like you're gonna leave finger prints behind etched into the chrome and train with a purpose. That is all.

All the website proves to me is a company trying to sell a product that doesn't do well in the market when all said and done - how many people do you see see using fat gripz?!

These are good for pull-ups , stop your hands looking like a dinosaurs nutsack(or Cliff Richards neck)
Free weights are pointless

I see a lot of people in my gym with various types of gloves,chalk, etc... I was really suffering with callus and blisters, but then i google for solutions and found the correct way to grip a bar and have had perfectly smooth hands for the last 6 months!! I might not be lifting as much as some guys like Matt.Wild looks like he could so if your not serious weight lifter i would suggest looking at how you grip.

Way too spongy, you're having to tighten your grip even more with these.

I have an old pair of these I use for DIY. They are cheaper and better than work gloves!

How many do you manage to push out per day (each hand)? Very impressive , and goes to show that if you work your wrists -the rest will follow.

Not sure what you mean? DB curl? Bench? BB curl?

Reserved, cheers

Why are you so interested in how often he masturbates? Do you fancy him? If so, then your approach leaves a lot to be desired.
