Golds Gym Max Lift Training Gloves
Advantages: Comfortable, Good grip, Protection, Fair price
Disadvantages: Dye comes out after initial use, Not washable
I bought these gloves a while ago for weight lifting and am now on my second pair. This is mostly due to the state the previous pair got in but they had an immense amount of use and served me very well. Currently on my second pair, having been used for around 3 months, they are still in great condition although starting to smell a bit! The gloves are supposed to protect your hands when weight lifting by preventing blisters forming at the proximal metacarpophalyngeal joints on your skin. They also give you better grip, which helps when lifting heavy weights.
They are great quality gloves. They are black with a Golden Gold's Gym logo on the front, which is on a thinner material. The gloves cover your hands on both sides and the majority of your fingers, but leave the fingertips free, which is great as you can still control touch screen phones/iPods for example and maintain dexterity when handling smaller equipment such as spring collars in the gym.
They are available in small, medium, large and extra large sizes. I use the large ones and they fit very well. You simply slip them on and then pull across the strap to fix it down and secure them well via the velcro mechanism. The velcro works well for a long time but did soon start to wear down on my original pair of gloves - probably because I tried washing them.
This was the problem - they started to smell a bit and really could have done with a wash but you can't wash them as they aren't made to be washed. To try and preserve them for as long as possible, I'd recommend staying cool when working out (not getting too sweaty hands) and not wiping your face with the gloves. At first when I started wearing them, I was left with pretty black hands as some dye came out when my hands sweated. This wasn't ideal but soon after they wore in a bit, my hands were not marked by the gloves. Unfortunately the dye was tricky to get out and required a few tough hand washes.
The palm surface of the gloves have a very soft gel in them, which makes lifting weights a lot more comfortable on your hands. Especially when lifting rough metal bars, I find these gloves are definitely worth having as they prevent those annoying blisters from appearing and keep your hands looking in good condition, which may be worthwhile for certain careers too. So overall they are comfortable, not overly expensive and work well to protect my hands and provide good grip. Recommended!
Thanks for reading
Summary: A good pair of gloves to protect your hands and provide much-needed grip when lifting weights
