Re: Gymnastics Hand Protection

you could use them to protect your hands, but toughening your hands is part of the process. The gymnastics grips are designed to reduce friction and make it easier to grip. If you choose to use them you will be choosing to have a weaker grip and than Rx'd. If you have damaged hands, I would say tape them or rest them. If you get into gymnastics and are doing something like a giant (kipping 360 degrees around the bar go for grips) I do gymnastics(for over a year) and haven't got to the point where my grip is failing, but strength is there yet on rings or highbar.
