I've seemed to have moved inot havier weights, not quite 200 but around 150. My palms seem to hurt after I bench, should i change my grip. I'm not a fan of glvoes, but i have them, would that help.

Palm or wrist?
If palm try adding a bit of chalk to your hand.

When I started moving into heavier weights, my palms hurt regularly for about a month, then they haven't hurt since. I think it's a thing that adjusts itself.

If you have the gloves then use 'em. Won't hurt anything. Like superior_will said, though, your palms shouldn't hurt anymore over time.

Just handle the soar palms for a while.

Well it could be in the very center of the palm, alot people get pain there at some point. And the gloves should help, usually just goes away shortly.

Gloves like stupid and i dont think they would help much. I think you will get used to it. I have skinny hands and never get any pain in my palms.

i'm not a fan of gloves, i'll just keep lifting through it and see how that works. I just wasnt sure if it was my technique or the heavey weight. Thanks for the input guys.

Maybe just the pressure on your palms causing the pain, well obv its that but maybe just your hands are sensitive to that much pressure until like you said you keep with it etc
I def get painful wrists on the heavier benches, goodluck with the sore palms and lay off the old *cough* might help too

I wear gloves because i had the same issue, mine was more of the pain of the bar on my palm and the texture of the bar.. gloves worked for me.

try and keep your hand in line with your arm...that's why some people wrap their wrists
