Hi everyone! this is my first post on T-Nation, although I've been reading the articles here for at least 3 years lol.
I've been using training gloves for a while now - probably since I started training. Initially, I used gloves because, at the time, I was working in contracting/construction/brick laying, and my hands and wrists were taking a beating. the calluses that I developed would drive me crazy.
These are the gloves I use, although I've tried a few different ones over the years:
My question is this:
Could these gloves be holding me back? I've been at a bench press plateau for a long, long time now (225x1). Could these gloves, considering that they wrap the wrists, have something to do with it?
Thanks for any replies!
