A lot of weightlifters train without the aid of gloves, but there are some real added benefits of using weightlifting gloves.
Here are five reasons why weightlifting gloves are your ally!
Gloves improve your grip it’s as simple as that. Your hands will get sweaty during a high intensity workout, and when they do, your hands can slip. Ultimately gloves will make your workout safer.
Weightlifting gloves will help prevent calluses and blisters on the hands. These can be quite painful and not so easy on the eye. You don’t want a small blister on your hand preventing you from your workout so make sure to wear your gloves.
Gloves provide valuable support when wrapped around your wrists during heavy lifts. The material of the glove will act like extra skin, ligaments and tendons in the wrist.
Weightlifting gloves go a long way to easing pressure during a heavy lift. The gloves increase the pressure capacity on your hands allowing you to move beyond your limitations and reach your goals faster.
Weightlifting gloves can go a long way to making you stronger, especially in pulling exercises. Gloves with wrist straps will allow you to lift a lot more than you could with just your hands. This is because weight is being distributed across your forearms rather than making your fingers do most of the work.
