Question Gloves

Hello,

I am in need of some assistance. I workout out of my garage and it is getting cold in New England. Due to the height of my gym anything that goes overhead I must do outside, where I can not bring a heater. What type of gloves do everyone suggest?

Re: Gloves

I am unaware of a Rogue glove. Do you mean the Mechanix gloves?

Re: Gloves

I like mechanix gloves but they are not going to keep you warm thats for sure. They're made for ventilation.

Re: Gloves

As long as you start with warm hands and stay active keeping warm blood flowing to your distal extremities, Mechanix type glove should work just fine. Either glove you choose should work for you.

Re: Gloves

Actually picked up a pair of the StrongerRx RTG Crossfit Glove on Friday. Not bad. Feels great I must say. I hit the kips and oly lift comfortably. I Just added another accessory to my game. Hope this helps.

Re: Gloves

Also interested in this subject.
I've seen some people use baseball gloves. Does anybody experience with those?

Re: Gloves

I do. They work pretty well. I try to get ones with no padding in the palm because I have small hands and it makes it harder on the grip, but they do the job and provide a good grip.

I recently gotten a pair of the RX gloves and so far I'm liking them. I've only used them a few times, but they seem quality.

My $0.02

I am on my 2nd $20 pair of Fox racing motocross gloves. I love em. For my needs they are the perfect balance between grip and thickness.

Re: Gloves

Never used gloves. I found that I couldn't hold a barbell or anything heavy with them. That being said, it might be time to snag a pair. My hands are absolutely gross. It has gotten to the point that if my girlfriend wants me to scratch her back i just lay my hand flat on her back and wave...This is with regular maintenance. I also don't go through a workout without my hands bleeding. I am thinking it is time to invest as tape only goes so far for me.

Re: Gloves

I have used New Grips for the past seven years. Just this year, I finally replaced my first set.

They are great and make it easy to go barehanded for thick bar training.
