WeightLiftingGloves.com Ambassador

I am thrilled to share with everyone that I am a new Ambassador for WeightLiftingGloves.com!  This company is based out of Portland, OR and they carry a huge variety of products from weight lifting gloves to CrossFit gloves, wrist supports, lifting straps and so much more.

With my new training program I am lifting five days a week.  I've been without gloves and can't wait to get some to review for everyone.  My hands are taking a beating, now there is nothing wrong with callouses they are like a badge of honor but I do like to keep my hands soft.  I've had tennis elbow for over a year, it will never go away because I can't take off months from lifting or volleyball, straps are a must have for certain lifts, especially deadlifts.  Recently I started training with kettle bells at the gym Kyle runs, Kosama.  When I saw that WeightLiftingGloves.com carries KettleGuards I was so pumped, these are something I've never tried and would help protect my wrists.

Can you tell I am excited???  I am hoping to eventually do some give aways after trying out some of these products.  I truly believe there is something for everyone.

Dream big, work hard and don't be afraid to go after opportunities, you never know what will happen!

    1. Just curious, why won't your coach let you use gloves? I definitely have better grip when I use them and again I prefer them protecting my hands :)

    1. Thank you! Depending on the quality of gloves, and I've chosen some bad ones, I can usually get through 6 months - to a year. They just get kind of gross and even laundering them can make they wear out faster.

    1. Thank you! When I used to lift lighter I wasn't quite as concerned, but when I deadlift, holding that bar just shreds my hands when I lose my grip, thankful for gloves and straps!
