These grips are way better then using gloves. After using these grips for a week I’ve noticed that i can get more reps in during my workouts because they don’t move around while i’m lifting. when i use gloves for my workouts then tend to shift a bit which makes it hard for me to handle. i knew the grips worked when i was able to dead-lift without having the feeling of losing my grip on the bar which i had with my gloves which use to make me stop after 7 reps because the bar was about to slip off my hands. TO SUM IT ALL UP, THIS PRODUCT IS AWESOME AND FOR THE PRICE IT IS WAY BETTER THEN GLOVES AND THEY ALSO WORK BETTER THEN GLOVES.
