Was looking for an alternative to gloves as i dislike the bunching up feeling btwn my fingers when i lift. The pads worked out nicely. The firm pads are better (for me) than gloves while lifting and the soft pads are great for dips and pushups (i use an iron gym bar so sometimes i get lots of pressure inside my palms). If i had to buy these again, i would! Only bad side is the rubbery smell but that goes away in a few wks.
Dont like to wear gloves while lifting? Get these!
