Crossfit Gloves WomensRiley Daye
If you’re a diehard Crossfit Girl or Crossfit Guy, then you know that a typical WOD (workout of the day) can be pretty brutal! Modeled after long before established HIIT (high intensity interval training) model, a CrossFit workout has become a more mainstream “gold standard” for testing one’s limits of strength, endurance and speed, all within the limitations of a 60 minute group sweat session. As more and more people are opting for these gut wrenching mostly bodyweight training, types of workouts, they’re also looking for workout gear designed to suit their needs.
Crossfit Gloves Womens
Since CrossFit hand protection is one of the most searched for type of gear online, we decided to give you some tips to buy crossfit gloves online. More women than men are being introduced to workout and weight lifting gloves as they start to adapt to more intense training. Guys have always known the benefits of gym gloves for bodybuilding because they have been pumping iron in the weight room for decades. More and more women however are realizing the benefits of building muscle and incorporating resistance training into their workouts. Unfortunately, most gloves calling themselves “Crossfit Gloves Womens” fall short from providing adequate crossfit hand protection. Here are a couple of things to look for:
1. Leather – When it comes to workout gloves for CrossFit, opt for something that’s made from genuine leather. Most gloves are made from synthetic materials like rubber, silicone, or sythentic “leather-like” materials. You want hand protection that is going to stand up to a grueling Crossfit workout. Check out this Battling Ropes Workout video by Personal Trainer Rodiney Santiago. This is only ONE type of exercise you may encounter in a typical crossfit workout. You wouldn’t wear cheap rubber shoes at the gym, and you shouldn’t use cheap rubber gloves either!
2. Weight Lifting Grips vs. Half Finger Workout Gloves – The debate between using these two type of gym gloves for crossfit hand protection is really a subjective one. Having said that, you have to remember that during a typical crossfit workout two things are going to happen. First, you’re going to be moving from exercise to exercise with little rest. If you are going to use a weightlifting grip, you want something that stays in place. The Original GymPaws® Leather Weight Lifting Grips have four finger loops to do just that…. stay in place. Most lifting grips that are rubbery pads don’t have this feature. Secondly, you’re going to sweat buckets! Half Finger Workout Gloves tend to absorb sweat and can actually make your hands hotter and more uncomfortable. Again, the GymPaws Lifting Grips are ideal (especially for crossfit gloves womens) because they allow for the maximum amount of air circulation and breath-ability.
Check out this video demo showing a typical Crossfit WOD exercise “Knees To Elbows.” The personal trainer / gymnast is using a pair of GymPaws because he wouldn’t normally want a full glove that restricts movement or a sloppy grip pad that could cause instability.
