Why are you guys against lifting gloves?
I personally have never worn them and my hands are getting kind of calloused now.
So what's the reason /fit/? Why do you hate them?
It's a meme.
Only if your grip technique is retarded. Curl your fingers around the bar and then your palm so all the weight isn't bearing directly on the skin folds. You will still have small rough spots but definitely nothing so big you'll need to sand them like a fucking mongoloid

Please fucking go. You are everything that makes this place just as bad as reddit
You're using an outdated and misguided sense of masculinity to incorrectly assign your latent homosexuality to a better way of doing something in order to make yourself feel better about having a small dick. It's the same thing. Learn to contextualize.

I don't hate gloves but they are a sure fire way to spot a beginner. You won't get campuses calluses if you learn to grip the bar properly. But honestly it's pretty feminine for a guy to lift in gloves even if he doesn't know how to grip the bar
I always wore gloves until recently I stopped for no reason, which has lead to me to grip weighs differently and build some man hands
>home gym in garage
>bar hurts like hell first thing because it's so bloody cold
>start wearing biking gloves and a hoody while squatting
>after, bar is warm enough to do the rest of my workout
>days are getting colder so I'm considering switching to full time lifting gloves for the winter
Will the gloves cause any actual future issues? Should I add grip specific accessories to make up for them? I like my calluses but I also like warm hands (or at least not frozen ones)
Using lifting gloves is much like wearing pink shirts. Yes, if you're a confident, handsome guy and/or a huge badass, you can easily pull it off and no one will judge you for wearing one, but if you're just a regular dude, you look like a fucking faggot.
>Maybe you're lifting and you're thinking to yourself, "Ouch, these rugged iron weights are hurting my frail velvet hand skin, maybe I should start wearing lifting gloves so I can continue to give my boyfriend smooth handjobs with my buttery man paws." In that case, lifting gloves are for you.
It's just a few kids on the internet acting all tough, don't worry.
I don't use them myself, but I totally get it, the callouses don't feel nor look particularly good, I just don't really care much.
Why are you even worried about callouses, your boyfriend was complaining when you gave him handjobs?
Also don't forget to buy them the same color as your lifting plug and to always carry them around on your purse.
