August 15, 2008, Newsletter Issue #339: Lifting Gloves

Tip of the Week

Should you handle your strength training with kid gloves? If your hands are sensitive, you may want to wear gloves to prevent blisters and callouses when doing a weight training program with machines and especially free weights. Some people feel it improves their grip, but this is personal preference. Most sporting goods stores and many on-line equipment stores have special weight lifting gloves, which should feel snug during your strength training exercise routines.
