    Nothing wrong with using gloves, if you are a girl. Nobody likes a girl with leathery hands. Otherwise, are you really all that concerned with your hands looking dainty and soft all the time?

    You don't develop your grip using gloves.

    Damn I've been using gloves, well I don't....until my hands start getting sweaty, and the barbell/or dumbell would just really slip off my hand. Things like shrugs, deads.

    The only time i can see using gloves is if you have a hand injury (i.e. cut/burn), ohh or if your a hand model.

    Men should have man hands. Therefore, no gloves.

    Of course, gloves retard your grip development. Think about a vise-grip: How much more clumsy would it be if it were padded? To transform your paws into vise-like machines of death, you must harden them. Gloves protect the soft flesh of your palms from wear and tear, and, thus, ensure that your flesh will forever remain soft, padding whatever vise-like grip you attain and gumming up the whole process.

    On top of that, gloves make you look like an M&F reader. They're a one way ticket to Pansyville.

    Leave the gloves to the women folk. Please.

    I decided I'm not finished yet.

    Now I may be new to powerlifting, but I've noticed a common theme in the literature. To move huge weights, one must create the most solid base possible off of which to push. If you were to wrap a bar in thick foam, it would be much harder to push. Why? Because any softness you have between you and the bar acts as a shock absorber. You'll have to apply more power to get it moving. That's why you form your back into a hard, static arch for the bench. That's why you tighten your upper body and death-grip the bar in a squat. The harder the contact point between you and bar is, the easier it is to transmit force. Every little bit of extra hardness you can pack into your form will translate into extra poundage you can move.

    Even if you're not all that concerned with grip training (I can't understand why), you still should lose the gloves. The more your hands adopt the texture of steel, the more efficiently you can punish iron.
