If your palms are hurting from lifting heavy dumbbells this is the solution. I was getting terrible pinching and pain in my hands from a certain brand of dumbbells, that have a grip with some sharp edges. These pads solved the problem. Good padding, better grip, and gave me the ability to lift more weight as I didn’t have to fight through the pain in my hands. I would recommend these to anyone. Also helps to prevent blisters as well. Very good product !
