Best Weight Lifting Gloves For Bodybuilding
Towards the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the man who is now regarded as the "father of bodybuilding" Eugen Sandow actually coined the phrase bodybuilding. A former circus performer mesmerizing fans with his feats of strength at local fairs and gatherings, Eugen Sandow began incorporating bodybuilding poses into his routine, many of which are still used in bodybuilding competitions today. In 1901 he organized and promoted the world's first bodybuilding competition.
You can search for more information about Eugen online to discover more interesting fitness and weight lifting facts if you're so inclined, but we can tell you one thing with certainty. If Eugen Sandow were alive today, there's not doubt that he would join the ranks with hoards of other fans to coin GymPaws® as the Best Weight Lifting Gloves For Bodybuilding!
Here's what you need to know before you buy your next pair of gym gloves, lifting grips, or crossfit gloves online:
Look at the material. Most gloves manufacturers like to use synthetic materials and faux leather, simply put because it's cheaper that real leather. GymPaws products always use the highest quality top grain cowhide leather. Even worse are the cheap rubbery grip pads that fall apart almost as fast as you can use them!
Decide which type of gloves you want. In 2016 there actually IS a difference between a Bodybuilding Glove, Lifting Grip or Gym Glove. Just like there are sport specific gloves for Football, Baseball, and even NASCAR.
Bodybuilding gloves tend to be bulkier with more padding. This can actually interfere with your form as they may inhibit movement.
Lifting Grips allow for more freedom of motion, but sometimes lack the functionality of full bodybuilding gloves.
