I clown my friends when they show up in gloves. I never really liked them.

Don't gloves essentially imitate fat gripz and make the bar even harder to grip?

lol, I know. It was the perfect meme for the post.

If it was half finger gloves, then yes I don't see point of those. But with full finger gloves they add many benefits. Extra one, I don't have to worry about bacteria and dirt as much in a public gym.

I don't know what it is, but I've been squatting for about 2 months now, and I feel like the pad is really helping me stay stabilized? Before I lift off, I really press my neck HARD into that pad and get locked and loaded, then I lift off and do my thing. I'm squatting about 185 5x5 and 245x1 in that region, so its nothing ridiculous, but I like it.

I bought some nike gloves in NYC back in 2005, trained with them for prob 5 years until they completely fell apart.

I miss using gloves, I've just never went out of my way to replace them

Exactly the problem I have with my Harbinger gloves. Too fat, makes me lose grip. I just bought a chalk sock, best investment ever made for me with lifting. I could pick up a house.

You shouldn't be touching your neck with the bar. Remove that pad immediately and find the right bar position. Those things are dangerous.

question:
is it possible to feel the onset of something like an ACL/MCL tear? i did a lot of squatting yesterday and my knee is feeling real funny this morning. i've been working out long enough to be able to distinguish good pain from bad pain and this is definitely bad pain. it's really mild though.

also, i did some front squatting yesterday and i think i pretty much have the "shelf" down. my problem is that i begin to lean forward as i go down if the weight is too heavy. this causes the weight to shift forward and fall off the "shelf". if i try to compensate by leaning back, i feel like i'll fall on my ass. so basically, i'm having trouble going straight up and down. tips?

this. i find that everyone that thinks they need the pad also thinks that the weight is on your neck. the bar should be on your shoulder.

Fools, you need to pick good gloves. Go for full finger. Assure padding is not too thick.

I either use Bionic workout gloves (expensive but feels very good). Or I use my mounting biking gloves. Which does a good job.

Keep the elbows up. It's hard but at least try to keep them high.

exactly. I know people that say ouch my spine. I'm like listen dude, move that sh1t and tighten your back. You will make a place for it to sit. Obviously these guys squatting 400+ are not resting it on a tiny protruding bone.

They're stupid imo. You have less control over the weight imo. Find a girl that wants a guy with man hands and you wont worry about your little calluses
