What Is Hyperhidrosis?

If you need to ask, then you probably suffer from sweaty hands. Gloves may be the last thing you think of.  Hyperhidrosis is a quite common condition that basically means excessive sweating.  While it may seem embarrassing, it shouldn’t be.  Over one million Americans are diagnosed with this disorder every year.  All of us are familiar with sweating under the arms.  It’s a natural function of the body to cool itself.  Those will sweaty hands, palms or feet (called palmoplantar hyperhidrosis) may be a bit more self conscious about it.

What Causes Hyperhidrosis Anyway?

Rest assured, there’s probably nothing wrong with you.  Most of the time cases occur in otherwise normally health people.  In extreme cases neurological, or endocrine issues can be the culprit.  Stress, temperature and emotion can cause excessive perspiration as well.  People with most extreme cases will notice sweating all the time regardless of weather or mood.

Don't Sweat It

Is Sweating During My Workout Normal?

Yes of course it is!  Anytime your core body temperature is raised, you will sweat.  During your workout at the gym, you may be weight lifting, or doing cardio thus causing you to sweat. Gym gloves for sweaty hands are key if you think you may suffer from hyperhidrosis however. An excessively sweaty or moist grip can be dangerous.  You could drop a weight or slip off of the pull up bars or even accidentally send that kettlebell sailing across the gym!

What Are The Best Gym Gloves For Sweaty Hands?

Sweat Less At Gym

GymPaws® are the original leather weight lifting grips.  They are the brainchild of the inventor designed out of necessity actually.  Traditional old school bodybuilding workout gloves are too bulky.  If you have ever worn a pair you would agree. GymPaws “gym gloves” are designed to give you the hand protection of traditional workout gloves, without the excess bulk.  Excessively sweaty hands are not friends with excessively sweaty workout gloves!

The genuine leather palm of GymPaws is slightly padded.  Just enough to ease some of the pressure from weight lifting, but not too much to get in the way.  The patented military grade Neorprene fabric backing wicks away sweat and moisture.  4 finger loops make them fit like a glove, and you have the added benefit of an ultra breathable ventilated design.
