Lifting gloves are a complete waste of money.
I know that it's a polarizing product, but I'm curious why you think they're a waste of money. I have really soft hands that develop painful calluses easily, and I have a habit of picking at them. What do you recommend?
Peeling off calluses is not a long-term solution for me. I have tried chalk and it doesn't make things any better. I don't think I would make good use of straps. I can't see how they would be advantageous to gloves, considering that they are more of an inconvenience and would only help with deadlifts and maybe shrugs, not to mention that I don't ever plan to lift so much that I can't rely on my grip strength. That aside, I am still wondering what makes you believe that gloves are a waste of money. Is there a downside that I'm not aware of?
If you'll remember, I only asked about the sizing of the gloves. You offered the unsolicited opinion that gloves were useless, but neglected to say why.
