Martial Arts gloves - Do I do use 'em for wl'ing – Weight Lifting Gloves (Pair) Reviews

posted by Axeia on 08/14/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
+Cheap
+Surprisingly good quality
Cons:
-Not weight lifting gloves as described but martial arts gloves
Other:
Pity you don't get a say in which color you want, would have preferred the black ones (Received a red pair).
Bottomline:
These aren't intended for weight lifting so the title is missleading, that said.. they do remarkably well as weight lifting gloves. All the padding on the top besides the bit on the knuckles is useless to me as with weight lifting you use the inside of your hand, not the outside.
For push-ups the padding on the knuckles is good though, prevents you from growing callus!
The gloves are of surprisingly good quality, thought they wouldn't last me for more than a week as my weight have very rough finishing on the gripping bar (hurts to lift barehanded!) and these only show minor wear and tear after ~2months of use.
