Weight-lifting gloves?

Thinking about buying some fitness gloves because my hands & wrists take a lot of abuse in powerlift class. Can anyone recommend a good brand, maybe something with gel padding in the base of the thumb?

  • I have some NIKE ones no gel but they are perfect and have had them for quite a while.

  • You might need some lifting straps for your wrists, I don't think gloves will help them much. I'd ask some of the other lifters in you class. Do they use gloves?

    PS. Come join the Work it Out Sexy Mama group! We need more heavy lifters there!
