Excellent gloves for presses,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: RDX Cow Hide Leather Gym Weight Lifting Gloves Bodybuilding Crossfit Training Fitness Exercise (Sports Apparel)
I looked up for gloves that have exceptionally thick padding - especially in the lower thumb palm area. I press heavy and suffer from mildly painful joints hence this was the criteria. The gloves are very well padded and therefore great for bench, shoulder presses.
However, owing to finger padding (totally unnecessary)these gloves do not help with grips especially for pull ups, deadlifts etc. Straps are not elasticated, so they do not support the wrist a lot - so not very useful for heavy bicep curls. So be mindful that you may have to carry two pairs of gloves - this one for presses and another with elasticated strap and less padding for grip specific exercises.
4 stars because I got what I needed and RDX products are very tough and durable. 1 star reserved as this is not an all purpose glove.
