5 Workout Gloves For Women To Help You Get Your Lift On–In Style
Getting a good workout in isn’t always about running on the treadmill for an extended period, going bananas on an elliptical machine or two-stepping in class for 45 minutes. Some of the best sweat sessions come from doing weight training. That includes lifting free weights, throwing around a medicine ball, integrating a kettlebell into your workout or using machines that are all about increasing your output with the help of stacked weights. Many fitness experts say that weight training can be better than cardio since you continue burning calories even after you finish lifting weights, but if you integrate both into your workout? Results on fleek.
And while getting your flex on is great, it can do a doozy on your hands. A few too many callouses can actually make lifting a pain in the butt. But the best way to enjoy your reps and go harder than before is to equip yourself with some gloves. And they don’t have to be the less-than-desirable ones you see guys using at the gym. There are actually quite a few that are ornate and fun and available for an affordable price. (And we all know that the more fun you have with your workout clothes and accessories, the more inspiration you have to go.) Here are a few that have caught our eyes and could probably help you do some damage on that weight rack–in style.
