It is usual that we look for the best equipment to train, being a classic the gym gloves as a method to carry out training bodybuilding in the most comfortable way.
The use of gloves in the gym It has a number of advantages and disadvantages that depend on the person, the time of training and the type of exercise, so it is good to keep in mind the objectives that we want to achieve in every moment and the benefits of using or not the gloves.
At the level of training, use gloves can have its advantages or disadvantages. However I would also like to speak from the point of view of health, and express my impressions as a physiotherapist. Everyone who read, assess and take the most appropriate decision for your particular case.
Benefits of using gloves in the gym
The gloves offer a comfortable grip, allowing a little more pleasantly exercises. In this way allow you to perform exercises that you might not do as well as bare-knuckle, even to lift more weight.
Not only do the most comfortable grip, avoiding the appearance of hardness hands or pain because of the pressure of the cufflinks, but also avoiding the sweat to make sure hands slip, giving greater firmness to the grip.
Gloves also provide protection to the joints. Some gloves, such as those of the upper image, are also a band to protect the wrist. This is useful especially in novices, or exercises where the wrist joint to be forced in excess.
Disadvantages of using gloves in the gym
As everything (or almost everything) in this life, the use of gloves may also have some disadvantages. In some instances are trifles, but must take them into account and rating at any time if it is worth using gloves or it is better to do without them.
It is true gloves to allow a more comfortable grip and prevent sweat to slide, but also make the grip is more imprecise. In exercises that require much control by hand, the use of gloves will cause that the movement is more awkward, less quality.
In addition to that the grip is not as accurate, also lost some grip strength. To include the dumbbell or bar directly by hand, fingers are better adapted to the surface, allowing a stronger grip and working more intensely.
Is it recommended to wear gloves in the gym?
From my point of view as a physiotherapist, the use of gloves is not question of whether or not: in each situation can that you appropriate training in one way or another. I will explain some examples.
On the training of the muscles of the forearm, bicep or triceps, especially using dumbbells, I believe that it is better not to use gloves, Since thus the movement is controlled and accurate.
There are exercises where the gloves help grip and others where grips better with your bare hand. It is a matter of try and go changing, doing each exercise with or without gloves after trying the method that works best.
Machines including many cufflinks tend to have already Yes elements padded and ergonomic grips, so many times already in itself are comfortable to use and it is not necessary to wear gloves. However, if we notice that the grip is too hard and appreciate discomfort in your hands, it is best to use gloves.
My advice It is always wear gloves to the gym and go them putting or removing depending on the exercise to be carried out. I think that it is good to use them because they give comfort to train and some protection to the joint, but I also think that it is good to get into the hands to perform nude grip, thus giving more control over the exercise.
