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.
