Good Lifting Gloves


#1

Hey, I'm looking for a pair of good lifting gloves with a moderate price ($15-$25). All I really need is a pair of gloves that feels comfortable and is durable. I've got an Oshmans and an Academy close to me and can also order online. Also, what size should I buy? I'm 5'8'' and have an average hand size I guess. Thanks for the help.

How about going without gloves? The calluses are awesome especially when they rip.

I'd say buy an average size glove for an average sized hand.


#4

How about a block of chalk instead?

spend the $ on chalk

Chalk. Best glove there is.

Unless your gym bans it and you aren't willing to bend the rules - then make sure they're VERY snug and breathable. Can't make any brand suggestions, I have no idea.

Mine has a sign that says no chalk. I stil use it.
