>hurr durr gloves are for pussies!!
Why do some of you memetards keep spouting this shit? It is literally more comfortable for your hands, you dont get blisters or callus on your hands and the bar becomes less slippery from all the sweat.
Whats next? You guys throw out your matress too?
>hurr durr matresses are for pussies just sleep on a wooden plate
>hurr durr a soft couch in the livingroom is for pussies just use a wooden bench if you wanna chill in front of the tv
I used to wear gloves. I felt that, while comfortable, I actually had worse grip on the bar since the material tended to be less tacky that skin. And you would look retarded chalking up gloves. Maybe if you're really old and your skin starts getting brittle is excusable.
They're good if you're a girl that gives handjobs often and needs soft, delicate hands
How about you quit being such a bitch and get some man hands.
I don't know of anyone that says "I want to lift a lot of weight and get fuckin jacked bro" but then pulls out a pair of gloves because "I want to be comfortable"
Motherfucker. You probably don't even know what hook grip is. I hope I don't ever see you irl curling 10's in the squat rack with your bitchmade gloves on.
You know what? Just go kill yourself OP. That's probably the best thing to do
My hands dont feel uncomfortable gloveless though. I used to wear them when I started working out, then one day I forgot them. Didn't take very long to get used to going gloveless
Because gloves are not anywhere near mandatory and they don't help the task at hand (pun intended) unlike the mattress in your analogy (helps you sleep better).
Gloves are here only for comfort and more so if you're a beginner (since your hands wont have calluses), and provide a worse grip with less feedback.
If you want to wear them, wear them, who cares.
>be at the gym doing my pull day
>pasty-white skeltal comes in wearing gloves
>does cable rows with 15kg
>curls with 5kg DBs
>curls invisible dumbbells while resting inbetween sets
>does dips with shit ROM
most people who wear gloves are idiots and move baby weights
I'm not particularly for or against gloves, but those are some shit metaphors. The reason you don't sit and sleep on the floor is that it's fucking cold and you'll get sick. You don't, however, get sick from lifting without gloves.
Glove padding slightly screws up the grip of pulling exercises and always will. You will never have correct grip with gloves. That is the advantage of chalk. And you look like a DYEL with them on. Gloves say "i don't know what grip is and refuse to learn". Just saying.
If there was such a huge health risk, wouldn't most gyms make wearing some sort of hand protection mandatory? I seriously doubt that a significant amount of people get gym-AIDS from lifting without gloves.
No girl i dated liked my rough hands which were a consequence of my job.
Its one of those memes that you spout until it happens and youre like ohh, well this is it i guess.
Just wear gloves if you want to god damn.
>then you must have had shit gloves
it's a well-known fact gloves make your grip worse. Why do you think literally no records have been set using them?
>enjoy your nasty aids hands
>oh no I can't my fairy faggot hands get dirty
How are my callus gains brah? Sometimes I clip them off with nail clippers cuz they start to hurt. Also sorry my hands are a little dirty from work.
finally someone that makes sense
i bet girls love it when you give back rubs with these hands
nah but seriously if it happens when you are working your heavy labor job its understandable but there is no reason to fuck up your hands while lifting
>but there is no reason to fuck up your hands while lifting
gloves make you worse at lifting though. Imagine trying to do farmers or something with gloves on, it's just not happening
>i bet girls love it when you give back rubs with these hands
R u srs or joking??
And my job does have a good amount of labor involved, so I already had calluses. But i don't feel the need to wear gloves because I feel that bare hands and/or chalk gives a much better grip, and it helps toughen up my hands a little more. I do wear gloves all the time on the job to protect from hear and sharp edges and the like.
You can grip the bar better with bare hands than with gloves. Deadlifting especially sucks with gloves.
Of course, if you use straps this becomes a non issue.
You can do whatever you want, but there are legitimate reasons to not use gloves other than "hurr durr alpha".
Gloves severely weaken your grip. Why do you never see anyone pulling real weight wearing gloves? Is OP actually this stupid or just dyel? A pair of gloves will never compare to the grip you have barehanded with chalk.
And who the hell are they?
Not powerlifters. As for strongman they only use straps when lifting like 900 pounds which a pansy little fruit like you couldn't lift in a billion years.
I don't care about motivating someone who starts a bait thread and is too stupid to realize the night and day difference between gloves and hand grip. Also OP seems more concerned with hygiene and giving soft massages than ever lifting real weight. I honestly wish he would find a hobby better suited to his sensibilities. Maybe handball?
No it's not you utter melon. Straps STRAP you onto the bar, gloves don't.
It's also worth mentioning that in actual tests of grip they don't allow straps (with weird exceptions like the frame carry at the Arnold).
the only time i wear gloves, it is for the wrist support as i couldn't find wrist wraps in my state, only gloves with wraps sewed onto them.
the calluses stop forming after a while, chalk for sweat, and you are a pussy
think he means wraps, not straps
5.5plate DL. No gloves. No blisters, hardly any calluses.
>nobody seriously dislikes them
i don't seriously dislike the gloves, however literally everyone i have seen wear them IRL is a DYEL beta faggot, who i disliked.
it is more the personality type that wears gloves that is disliked
Not really. I take it you are from America and train in some nice, upper class LA or San Francisco planet fitness gym? Anywhere else in the world, people will laugh at you for using gloves.
>you massage by sliding your hands around
confirmed for shit-tier massage skills
you use primarily finger tips and elbow...
i give 10/10 massages, made a living giving out massages in a mall (unlicensed) for a good 6 months charged $30 for 15 min, made crazy cash
if you smear your hands around, you aren't really massaging
Look OP, I know you want to protect your pansy-ass palms so you can keep giving your wife's son velvety smooth handjobs, but some of us are actual men
>it makes it easier to hold heavy weight
While true, it doesn't make your grip stronger. I'd rather just develop better grip strength and circumvent the need for gloves altogether
>there arent plenty of people with gloves that actually lift
i have yet to see one IRL..
as far as i understand it, people who actually lift stopped wearing them in the 80s
also insulting beta faggots is hardly a sign of insecurity.
i do use oils, actually (aromatherapeutic oils, because lotion is pleb-tier.
and you can use your finger tips (especially thumb) to "slide" through a muscle, you don't slide your whole hand around... there is no focal point..
you just give shit massages, m8
THEY WEAKENN YOUR GRIP!
How fucking hard is this to understand?
Try pulling your heaviest deadlift with gloves then try it with barehands and chalk. Night and day fucking difference. read the thread dipshits. There is a reason the strongest guys in the gym moving the heaviest weight don't wear gloves. ffs
Everyone with gloves is either a homosex or dyel. Homosex part confirmed by my homosex friends who needs to give smooth handjobs, dyel confirmed by my friend who uses gloves for anything above 40kg and didlys 1 pl8.
Girls either like rough hands or not. My gf hates it, all my exes loved it because it made me more manly. However my gf also didlys and has fucked up hands so she has no right to complain.
>He still sleeps on a mattress
Enjoy damaging your spine.
i am sure no one cares... still true, and unimpressive..
i have my lifts written from the first time ever in a gym:
ohp: 115 x 5
bench: 145 x 5
dead: 240 x 1
hip thrust: 215x5
When i dead lift I hold the bar where the red line is rather than the black one because it's more comfortable. Are there any downsides to this?
>Whats next? You guys throw out your matress too?
I dunno about that, but then there's the 'tards that try to convince you to stop using soap and shampoo when you shower, basically just wet yourself down and wipe the dirt off onto a towel. Because girls just love dirty guys who smell like a combination of old ballsweat and crusty skidmarked underwear.
Actually, OP, I'll tell you what's up with /fit/ in general: /fit/ is so full of insecure little babbys, that they can't possibly show any sign of any sort of weakness, and in fact will overcompensate for their crippling insecurities by making everything as difficult, painful, and brutal as possible, to prove to the world that they're such manly macho men, which is ironic since they're usually none of the above. Meanwhile secure, mature, intelligent Anons who lift and train do so in a moderate and consistent manner, take reasonable safety precautions, don't get injured from being stupid, and make decent gains. Oh and it's worth pointing out that the worst of the cripplingly insecure bunch around here are the steroid fags, who literally will inject shit from questionable sources just because they think they'll look good and people will finally accept them -- which is body dysmorphia in the extreme, because they end up looking like circus freaks. Stick to your guns OP you'll do fine.
>being 200lbs automatically makes you fat
Feeling dyel twink?
I'm fat as fuck son
