  • Captain of crush grippers

    Hey,

    I had those grippers for a while, yet I haven't trained with them for a fair while now.
    Today I understood why, except the general fit in my hand (I'm a tall guy, but I don't got huge hands), these grippers are quite rough on the skin of my palm. Any ideas on how to make it more comfortable?

          It's not manly to the womenz you're pawing OR your johnson when it's
          on the PALM of your hand.

          Otherwise, I'm alllll for calluses, even have my own.

            You want that texture, tha thelps you grip them, otherwise they'd be likely to go flying out of your hands... because they will start to get smooth from use as skin cells fill the space betweent he bumps (when this happens I usually drunk them in some boiling water to help get it out then take a brass brush to them... because no one wants all that dead skin just sitting around).

              +1 on the texture being there in order to grip them. you will need to get callouses. gloves will only interfere with being able to close them. you want the gripper properly seated in your hand or you could actually injure yourself

                I have too many bloody callouses. I'm not worried about it being uncomfortable, it's alright with me and makes me feel badass.
                Problem is, I do not believe women will like that. So I have to choose, badass or not. (Anyhow I don't think those callouses are going to disappear any time soon, they were there even when I stopped training for a while).

                Suggestions?

                  That's what *I* said!

                  Just wear the damn gloves.

                  If you can't get a good grip on the thing with them ON, then something is SERIOUSLY WRONG.

                  Don't listen to anyone else.

                  Just me, me, me, me, ME.

                    I did notice what you wrote, that's why I adressed the women's aspect issue.
                    Now I just need to find complete lifting gloves. (The ones I have don't cover part of the fingers).

                      I've been a total doofus loser and have been using baseball gloves at the gym.

                      All the stupid lifting gloves I've tried, scrunch down on the fingers so I get calluses
                      on my fingers anyway. Lame.

                      Baseball gloves look sooper-dee-duper LAME ASS, but hey, my hands stay chick-like, so
                      there's that.

                      C'mon, be lame like me - YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!!!!!!

                          Why the hell are they that expensive?, what's so hard about making a full finger gloves?

                              If he can wear gloves and close it, then he's using a trainer... they aren't to have hand-model baby smooth ahnds. They are to have functional crushing grip strength.
