This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Have you been looking for a simple way to get more out of your exercise sessions? Weighted gloves just might be the perfect addition to your routine. These accessories offer increased resistance during physical activity to help you build strength and endurance. They're super-easy to put on, comfortable to wear, and come in a range of colors and designs to match your personal style.

Editor's Notes

February 04, 2021:

It was a busy round of updates, with half our previous picks losing their spots due to a proliferation of availability issues. The choices we ended up removing were the Fila Exercise, Valeo Power, XtraEdge XE, Sisyama Combat and Empower Women.

With quite a few vacancies on our list, we wasted no time finding several new options to add to our rankings, and ended up focusing on gear that was well suited to martial arts training, recognizing that designs like these had little representation on our list, even though they comprise a large part of the weighted-glove market.

Our new inclusions are the FitsT4 Half Mitts — which are available in black or white and boast breathable terry cloth between their fingers; the Ringside EHW-P — which, at either two or three pounds per hand, are significantly heavier than most selections in this space; and the Meister Elite — a two-pound pair that’s slight enough to slip inside a pair of boxing gloves.

If you’re looking for other ways to add a bit of resistance to your cardio training, we also maintain lists of weighted belts, weighted vests, and ankle weights.

October 30, 2018:
