An intense training session can be tough on the hands, so make sure you have the right fitness accessories for your workout. Torn hands can mean the end of a workout or even put you out of a competition, so help avoid injury by protecting your hands with a palm guard or custom designed CrossFit gloves.
Muscle-ups, pull-ups, toes to bar and other repetitive action exercises used in CrossFit, strength training and gymnastics can put enormous pressures on the palms of your hands as you grip the bar or rings. Correctly fitted fitness gloves can save your hands from painful ripping or calluses which can put you out of the action.
Industrial Athletic’s Palm Guard PROs are made from smooth supple leather which protects the palms without restricting movement or strength capacity. These fitness gloves slip over the two middle fingers to give you the protection you need where you need it. Wider versions can decrease your grip and are unnecessarily cumbersome. CrossFit palm guards are secured around the wrist with a leather strap for correct positioning.
Industrial Athletic’s specially designed CrossFit gloves come in five different sizes and it is important that they fit correctly. Measure your palm from the base at the wrist to the bottom of your middle finger to determine your correct size. Poorly fitting gloves can be dangerous so make sure that your fitness gloves are comfortable and secure, and to ensure that they do their job properly.
Palm grips take a lot of heavy beating so they won’t last forever. The best fitness gloves are made of heavier leather and have an elastic finger loop design which holds them in place better.
Save yourself the pain and invest in a pair of Industrial Athletic palm guards or fitness gloves
