I recently order the grip power pads and they are great. I have been using gloves on and off for the last 20 years and decided to use something different. I wanted something simple but effective. These pads have been saving my hands and recommend the product. I had a guy make fun of the pads so I told him that it is better than using nothing. During the same work out, he saw how easy I was gripping the weights and ask me if he could try it. At the end, he kept asking to borrow them. This just tells you that it works.
As someone who recently suffered a broken and dislocated my wrist, I have had a difficult time getting back into lifting due to a weak grip and mild arthritis. I was looking for a pair of gloves that would help with grip and reduce wear and tear on my hands. I found these and they really did the trick: better grip, hands dont become sweaty, very inexpensive, and easy to use. I feel as if I can lift heavier weights without tearing up my hands -especially with pull-ups
best pads in the market. my skin doesn’t crack and the grip it provides allows me to get another rep or two
This is the first time I use the pads, so far have proven to be good and allow me to make more use of them than I could for the gloves.
Pads are comfortable and as advertised they won’t make your hands sweat!
Worth giving it a try.

I have been looking for quality workout gloves for a long time. None of the gloves I used, protected my palms from calluses like these pads. I got the soft grip pads, and they actually help me do more reps than I usually do (probably I was giving up early due to discomfort in the palm before). I will post another review soon after I try the foam grip pads!
I like this, nice grip no sweating like the gloves, easy to clean no need to wash and dry like the gloves and very light… Recommended to all.

They’re at least as good as gloves and if your hands tend to get sweaty in gloves then this a is a great alternative. I think that some may not realize that these actually 3 different ranges of softness GRIP POWER PADS – ALTERNATIVE TO GYM GLOVES, Weight Lifting Straps and Gloves. I got the firm ones and I actually like them, but I’m going to get a set of soft ones to compare. I actually like that I don’t have to take gloves off for exercises that don’t needed. I just leave the pads on my clipboard and keep moving through my workout. Awesome!

I bought these for crossfit exercises that were tearing up my hands. I have been using them for about a week and they work great. I don’t have to worry about tearing my hands and pull ups and toes to bar anymore. Good purchase

Performs as indicated. This is a great alternative to gloves. My hands don’t get sweaty, it is helping me avoid the pinching that I would normally have at the base of my fingers if I didn’t use any gloves.
As an added feature, it allows me to quickly go from a set of weights to a cardio machine and actually use the palm HR sensors without having to fight to remove a pair of gloves.
I wouldn’t have thought so, but the extra padding does help to lift a bit more weight.
The shape is rectangular and I like to use them so the long side curls around the grip of the weights, they could actually be a little bit wider in the narrow direction…then I would use them in the other orientation…I would like a little more coverage (mostly because I wouldn’t have to line them up as carefully–but my hands are a little on the large side).
The ones that I have are the “firm” pads. They appear that they will be at least as durable as gloves, two weeks of use has not shown any signs of wear. I am hoping to try a pair of the “foam” ones next.
