In this instructable I will show you a better alternative to gym gloves.

I have used gym gloves in the past. Actually I own a pair which is now nearly 20 years old.

I never liked them. My grip wasn't improved and their short finger sleeves left my fingers unprotected and full of calluses. Never again!

Step 1: Materials

All you need is cushion foam.

Cut two pieces that can cover your palms and your "gloves" are ready.

Step 2: Go Lift Some Weights

Cushion foam has excellent grip to the barbel or dumbbell and cushions all the surface of your palm including your fingers. Besides weight lifting, I use them while rowing indoors.

Also it is washable and very durable. The foam "gloves" in the picture are 5 years old and have been hand washed many times without deteriorating.

<p>I would not go in gym with those ! i would rather be bare handed and lift weights.</p>
<p>Bare handed is ok for those who don't mind the calluses. My solution is not pretty or &quot;polished&quot; as gym gloves are but in terms of functionality and simplicity I think that foam cushion wins.</p>
