I started CrossFit over 12 months ago after a stint in bodybuilding and I’ve not looked back. I was practicing muscle ups in the box when I could feel my hands starting to hurt quite badly, stopped to have a look and I had really ripped my hand from the friction. After letting them heal a friend suggested some grips help save my hands on the bar.
After a lot of research( it’s what I do) I found the picsil grips and I haven’t looked back my hands have been saved, a little stiff at the start but that’s like me in the morning so after using them for a couple of sessions they soon become more supple. With a little chalk they help me grip the pull up bar, barbell even kettlebells so much better without ripping my hands apart.
If you haven’t tried them yet what are you waiting for, awesome product, awesome price
Was looking for some nice gloves as I kept ripping my hands from doing pull-ups.
I have to say that I chose an M as that is normally my clothing size and the gloves seemed tighter and slightly smaller. When your hands are on the bar, the thick layer of the gloves sticks into the skin and it hurts my fingers by putting pressure on them. I'd like to have a thinner layer with medium safety for ripping the hands instead of having a thicker layer that offers more protection, but less mobility.
It's a good glove, but it will depend on what you are trying to do with it. For me, I need to find a lighter one to feel more natural.
Very happy with those. I have tried so many grips and my hands where still always hurting or I couldn't hold on to the bar without sliding. I decided to give these a chance. They feel very stiff at first so I wasn't expecting them to be comfortable BUT they are! They adapt to the curve of your hand around the bar and are nicely grippy. I can hold on much longer and my hands do not hurt! I am very happy with them and will definitely give the other models a go as well!
Brought these for my husband. Loved them and fulfilled their purpose. However he has only had them for 6 weeks and come home to tell me that they're broken. The metal ring/clasp on the strap has completely broken off and now unable to fasten round the wrist. Shame I cannot find a way to directly contact the seller as this would have been my first choice. If the seller could contact me to discuss this that would be ideal (thank you)
These grips are amazing!! Sized up for a large and they fit perfectly. The wrist sttap is very soft and doesn't dig into your wrist. Much better product and far more superior than Bear Komplex grips. Amazing value, can't rave enough about these.
