Lose those Sweaty Weightlifting Gloves: Upgrading Your Hand Protection
Have you been working out for a long time—months or even years—without quite getting the results you’re looking for? Are you doing everything right, but you just can’t figure out what small aspect of your routine, gear, or technique might be holding you back? Maybe you’ve been working out and getting great results, but recently your progress seems to have leveled off. Could there be some minor obstacle standing in your way?
In either scenario, it might be a good idea to stop and take a hard look at your workout gloves. A good set of hand protection gloves can shield your hands from blisters and abrasions while you lift weights. But a great set of grip gloves can do even more. If your exercise gloves are guilty of any of the following shortcomings, it might be time to ditch them and try a pair of durable, moisture-wicking GRIPAD®s.
How Your Grip Gloves Might Be Letting You Down
- Traditional workout gloves that cover the whole hand can sometimes restrict your natural movements and interfere with your technique in ways you don’t even recognize. GRIPAD®s avoid this problem by sliding on over the fingers and leaving the rest of the hand free for proper range of motion.
- Conventional glove can also collect sweat and trap bacteria. This can be uncomfortable and can even lead to bad smells and skin infections. GRIPAD®s allow your skin to breathe while still helping you keep a tight, safe grip on equipment.
- Standard weight lifting gloves may provide inadequate control over heavy weights. GRIPAD® offers a tight fit and a secure, non-slip surface so you can forget about your grip and focus entirely on your technique. Just toss those sweaty old grip gloves in the trash bin, slide on a pair of GRIPAD®s, and hit the gym!
