You guys know how much I love packages, right? Of course you do! Well I got a pretty sweet package in the mail this weekend. Harbinger was kind enough to send me a pair of lifting gloves to review. You all know how much I love my old pair; you can see them in these posts:
Sadly, they have seen better days. (I’m pretty sure I got these in my senior year of high school. They’ve been to the gym many times, and they’ve been through the wash a few times too.)
So these new one will replace the old. Notice how cute yet hardcore they look! It’s like, “Hey, I’m tough, but I’m still pink.” Harbinger sent the pink gloves for breast cancer awareness month. There’s a link to them here.
I use gloves for one reason, to protect my hands from pain and ugly callouses. (Ignore my dork-ness, please.) They work well, but vegans may not like the leather grips.
However… I love gloves because they fire me up for a hard workout. When I ran cross country, I waited until the last minute to throw on my lucky socks and racing spikes. When I played soccer, I waited until game time to throw on my jersey. Now I throw on my gloves right before lifting.
Do you have any pre-race/game/workout rituals that help you perform harder/faster/longer?
On a side note, check out my yummy dinner! I paired my egg/spinach/cheese wrap with a couple crackers & cheese, half a cup of green beans, and an orange for dessert. The orange’s vitamin C helped my body absorb the iron from the wrap and the spinach… and it was delicious.
