Since being launched a couple of years ago, GymPaws have become a favorite alternative to gym gloves for thousands upon thousands of Crossfit enthusiasts, weightlifting fans, athletes and coaches. They say that impersonation is the highest form of flattery, and while this may be true, it can also mean a waste of your hard earned dollars! The gripper barehand gloves for Crossfit is the latest reincarnation of hand protection for the gym that you're better off just passing by.
The Gripper Barehand Gloves For Crossfit
There are some people who don't believe in wearing any type of gym glove when working out. While this is certainly a personal decision, studies have shown that enhancing grip and easing hand fatigue can help you maximize the results of your workouts. Especially when it comes to Crossfit WODs where you're running from exercise to exercise where one may not relate to the next. The gripper barehand gloves for crossfit are nothing more than a thin piece of nylon that covers the base of your fingers and top of the palm.
The American Council On Exercise (ACE) conducted a study that determined a couple of things:
- Weightlifting for muscle SIZE is different that weight training for muscle strength.
- Heavier weights will increase intramuscular strength. This means that the amount of muscle fibers engaged is higher. Training to fatigue can accomplish this as well.
- Weight lifting increases levels of anabolic hormones, specifically testosterone which is partly responsible for muscle growth.
So what do these facts have to do with the gripper barehand gloves for Crossfit or gym gloves? When your hands tire before the muscle you're working is fatigued, you're not nearly placing enough effort on that muscle group to effectively generate results. Think of Crossfit pull ups or any pull ups for that matter, what is the first thing that starts to hurt and makes you want to drop to the floor? Your hands! By reducing pressure and friction on the hands, you're more likely to do a couple of more reps and push yourself to exhaustion.
GymPaws Weight Lifting Grips were designed with slight padding and 100% genuine leather. They won't bunch up and get in the way like the gripper barehand gloves will. The four finger loops on the back ensure that your GymPaws will actually fit like a full gym glove without having the excess bulk of a glove.
