Choosing Gloves

I want to choose a glove but it has to be from bb.com because I have a credit in store there. I know most of you will only say ‘man up’ but it’s a girlfriend’s request you guys know hows that. haha
Well I don’t want with wrist support because I don’t want to neglect my forearms work on compound exercises.
I’d aprecciate a suggestion on which glove should I order.

English is not my native language so please a little patience, thanks.

Gloves? You mean chalk? C-H-A-L-K

if you want gloves from bb.com, look on bb.com and buy gloves… lulwut?

it has a lot of kinds of gloves, I’d like to know which one should I choose. I know nothing about gloves, I have never used them, and since I’m going to import, I’d like to make no mistake on buying a bad pair.

That would be my first option, but like I said, girlfriend’s request haha

Does your girlfriend have a problem with your hands being calloused?

Translation: my callouses hurt when I masturbate.

She doesn’t like it very much and since I don’t care to use gloves I thought about buying to please her.

Its a nice thought I guess, but is this really something to worry about?

i went over just to take a look , and if you are not interested in gloves with wrist wraps then it dosent really matter which kind you get. the downside is you cant put them on to see how they feel a thing you can probably do at any gym or exercise equipment store. go to one of those and try them on. some have nets to vents the sweat out so your hands wont be moist or smell bad.
if you do decide to pick one up off BB.com then all I can say is that most guys at the gym I work at use those “grippad” things and they seem content.

If your hands are calloused that badly then you’re holding the bar wrong. I never use gloves or straps and have lovely smooth silky man-child hands.

Gloves won’t stop callouses anyway. They will make you look 98% gayer though!

Buy some cheap single use razors and shave your calluses down after you shower. Leaves a glassy smooth surface and only takes a minute.

I’m sorry, no respect for men wearing gloves at the gym. if their girlfriends have been brainwashed by today’s society into wanting some Bieber-lookin’-ass that’s fucking pathetic and their men should’ve known better.

Your girlfriend is trying to turn you into a metrosexual. She will probably cheat on you with some bigger meathead with horrible calluses. Please read this book and continue to grip her body with your callused hands while giving it to her good. You will be a better man for it!

This. Or, borrow one of those sanders your girlfriend uses to soften the calloused area around her heels from wearing high heeled shoes. If she doesn’t already do this, tell you want her to start because you don’t like rough heels on women. ; )

Either way, you don’t have to wear gloves or buy anything.

You would like what i use. The brand is Bell, they are cyclist gloves the palm are suede and the feel is great, no wrist. So look at details and my suggestion is avoid vinyl the feel is much better non vinyl. Some website allows questions so ask if it is not specified.
All the best !
EDIT fill your profile it will give us a chance to figure your native language.

PS. I had a little time, checked the site the pair at the top is OK, if your credit is enough that might be to your liking about 5 pairs down

They do don’t they. I find the chalk helpful here too.

Show me any one that can pull 500 or shurg 500 and they WILL have calous hands…there is no way around that if you plan on using HEAVY weight…

For the OP dude there is nothing wrong with using gloves…they DONT take away from gripping strength vs raw, hooks on the other had do…

I been using gloves ever since I started Heavy Deads, and Heavy Shrugs because it allowed me to hold greater loads of weight w/o loosing my grip.

chalk is a HELL of a lot better through…
