I get much better contact/grip and a more pure/real connection of whatever it is I am holding. Equaling better lifts.

*My wedding ring is silicone and is no issue while training
I would say I see at least half of the guys wear gloves at my gym. also have separate lifting straps I use when doing heavy back workouts. One thing I now use religiously are elbow sleeves/brace when I do heavy chest days or any triceps movements because my elbows would literally feel like they're burning. I use to get pretty bad but now these elbow braces help out alot!
