The 10 Best Weightlifting Gloves
This wiki has been updated 14 times since it was first published in January of 2017. Weightlifting requires a tremendous level of physical fitness, and subjects the hands to sweat, calluses, blisters, and abrasions. In addition to enhancing your grip, these gloves can mitigate those issues by providing cushioning and support for the palms, wrists, and fingers, whether you're into pumping iron to build muscle or you're hitting the machines for weight loss and toning.

As we looked over the list, we discovered that the US Muscle Division Double Stitched was no longer available, so we removed those. We also learned that the Fit Active Sports lack dependable durability, often breaking down rather quickly. We dropped this model from the rankings as well.
Reports suggest that users are highly satisfied with the RimSports Premium, as they offer elasticity, a tight Velcro strap, and enough cushion on the palm to minimize soreness. We also noted their fun, colorful appearance. We upgraded this model on the list. We did find that the stitching on the Trideer Workout may not last as long as some users would like, so we dropped this option a couple spots.
Several people seemed very impressed with the durability of the Ihuan Professional, one of our new additions. It’s made with a tough fabric, but it’s not so thick that it hinders your control during a workout, providing a nice blend of flexibility and protection.
Ryderwear Fitness Ryderwear offers two options, and they’re both designed with a lightweight fabric that promotes airflow to minimize excessive sweat and potential odors. The standard unisex pair is black, while the women’s pair features stylish pink highlights on the edges. ryderwear.com
