    Default Any help with grip problems and gloves?

    Hey all,

    I've been lifting for about 6 months and I'm making my rounds in a lot of forums today asking about gloves and grip strength...I've hit a point where my grip strength is causing me to plateau and I'm looking for any good gloves/tape jobs/solutions for this one.

    I just ordered these things on a crowdfund because they looked kinda unique; one of my biggest problems with the regular fingerless lifting gloves is my hands get super sweaty. Any thoughts on these or any other solutions???


    edit: apparently I can't post links because my account is new. It's called the Palmi on Kickstarter if anyone searches it.

    Personally I would use chalk with a hook grip. I really don't like using gloves and other assisted gripping mechanisms mainly because nothing looks better than spreading crack cocaine over a bar to slam a new PR. The hook grip is awesome to maintain your grip if its slipping. Combine it with chalk and you will have one deadly combination.
