    No. I’ve earned these callouses and I honestly take pride in them.

    This shit cracks me up. In the 80s I started wearing rubber gloves when working on cars. I figured chicks didn’t dig me dragging my nasty fingernails around and in their bodies. Every single person that saw me wearing gloves laughed. Now only the nastiest of mechanics don’t wear gloves. It is an absolute industry standard.

    So do the ladies prefer men to paw at them with tortoise shell palms and hard ass fingertips? I don’t know, I’ve been retired since my first marriage in 1998.
    I wear gloves and straps on back day. Not only can I not grip the weights that I can properly lift, that weight tears at my palms and fingers.
    This glove/no glove crap is such macho bullshit.

    No gloves. I bought some a couple of decades ago. But I’d sweat so damn much, the grip would get slick. Plus sometimes I’d loose the damn things. So I just got used to not using them at all. I use straps on heavy trap bar shrugs. I do this just to isolate the shoulders and not have to worry about the grip.

    I have bad carpal tunnel and I wear wrist straps every gym session no matter what muscle im targeting and I notice way less pain in my wrists/forearms/elbows.

    I do hand lifting gloves that I wear occasionally for cardio on the heavy bag just because my wife bitches if I get blood all over “her” gym. Yes, “her” gym! Lol

    I do also wear them when I’m doing any barbell work if I don’t have time to let the gym warm up too much beforehand. Sub zero iron is colder that a witches titty!

    I used to always think that if you couldn’t lift something without straps then you shouldn’t be lifting it in the first place however I have changed my position on that as well and I use straps for shrugs and deadlifts and it has really helped to keep my wrist/forearm/elbow pain in check as well.

    Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
