Weight lifting or cross fit workouts can cause blisters and hand pain even after a couple minutes of training. Another popular exercise done in the gym – rowing – can also blisters and cause rough dry skin on the hands. Good news! All of these injuries could be avoided with a pair of top workout gloves. Here are 4 reasons to try GymPaws and why they are the top workout gloves.
- Lifting gloves and grips are great for any level of fitness from the hardcore lifter to crossfit athlete to to weekend gymrat. Weights will commonly give you hand calluses or soreness however a simple pair of gloves can avoid that. Simple yet effective GymPaws crossfit gloves give you added protection, and slight padding without feeling bulky.
- Ergonomic design. Some lifting grips for the gym are too bulky and restrict movement. GymPaws workout gloves are designed to allow ease of movement. The four finger loop neoprene backing is one of the reasons this is a top workout glove for men or women. Simply put… less bulky material and they stay in place.
So what are the best uses for workout gloves? One of my favorites exercises is the pull up. Pull ups are easily one of the best upper body workouts you can do. One of the down sides however is that the only thing coming in contact with a weight is your hands grasping the bar. If your grip slips or you are unsure of the weight your grip can bare you may not get the most out of a pull ups exercise.
Using a top workout gloves like GymPaws assures that you won’t get a sweaty build up from the tough workout. It will also increase your confidence in the actual lift.
How to do a pull up? Pull ups exercises put a lot of strain on the forearm muscles which is the muscle group between the elbow and the wrist. The brachioradialis muscle is the flexor of the elbow and servers to connect the pronators and supinator muscles of the hand. With a proper pull up exercise you will quickly notice that your grip becomes tested and you may even feel a slight burn in your forearm muscles.
Top workout gloves won’t necessarily decrease the exertion placed on these muscle group, however if you don’t have to worry about your grip slipping you’ll be able to focus on performing the movement accurately. A solid workout needs a top workout glove!
