When you’re lifting weights or engaging in serious resistance training, the right hand protection can mean the difference between an effective workout that gets results and a painful, unproductive ordeal. For those who are committed to intense training plans, lifting with no hand protection at all just isn’t an option. Direct contact with bars and equipment can lead to abrasions and blisters that can become painful or even infected, and along the way these small injuries can compromise technique and interfere with our progress.
Weight lifting gloves are a step up from nothing at all, but they’re not an ideal solution. Gloves can constrict the natural range of motion in our hands, which can lead to improper lifting and poor results. They can also collect sweat and mildew, which can smell bad and feel unpleasant. Our skin needs to breathe, especially the skin of our hardworking hands, and it isn’t kind to subject our hands to the clammy, claustrophobic environment of a sweaty lifting glove.
The solution? Gripads. Gripad weight lifting grips offer hand protection even better than gloves, and they don’t restrict your range of motion or get in the way as you lift. These durable little weight lifting grips simply slide on over the fingers and remain securely in place, no matter what kind of abuse comes their way. Gripads are made of nearly indestructible, moisture wicking neoprene that stands between your palms and your equipment without encasing your entire hand. So you receive the best possible hand protection while still allowing your skin to breathe naturally. Gripads are lightweight, washable, snug, and strong. Once your Gripad weight lifting grips are in place, you can forget all about them and focus on your resistance training goals.
