Ok, so, you’ve got your gear (killer sweat-wicking tights and matching bra ...obviously). You’ve got your shoes, you’ve got yourBala Bangles, you’ve got your Fitbit - but do you actually NEED workout gloves?! A quick google search reveals that the internet is - as always - fairly divided on the topic. But let’s sort it out! Keep reading to find out if you should be wearing workout gloves.
We may be biased here but we say YES, YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULD WEAR WORKOUT GLOVES. But let’s forget for a moment that we just happen to make the best workout gloves and explore the reasons why people don’t want to wear gloves while they workout. The top reasons we hear from “anti glovers” are: they’re too bulky, super ugly, not comfortable, make it difficult to grab weights, and generally just get in the way, and lastly they smell horrible.
Your workout gloves should never be bulky, in fact, none of your workout apparel should be. If your gloves are interrupting your workout, it’s time for an upgrade. In addition to comfort, your gloves should work with you not against you. The best workout gloves are tight fighting (think compression), increase your grip while holding weights and other equipment, and be easy to clean.
Should you be wearing workout gloves? Yes, but not just any workout gloves. We had all these points in mind when we set out to design PROPS. Let’s talk PROPS and where they fit into the workout glove discussion.
In a nutshell, not all workout gloves are created equal. They really need to work with you, not against you, and help you make the most of your workout - if they don’t chances are you don’t need them. Thankfully, PROPS are not your average workout glove and has been designed to address the specific issues mentioned above.
