before i make my post, i want to say that i know gloves aren't optimal for grip strength (something i am trying to improve) and i do not want to wear them.
I am 17 and my dad has been talking to some people about wearing gloves because i have been getting more callouses lately. He said they aren't good for my hands and that gloves will stop me from getting them, but i told him that i want to improve my grip strength and gloves will hold me back. Last session i deadlifted, and ended with static holds, so i had some pretty nasty ones. Does anyone know how i can convince him not to make me wear gloves? He wants to go get them on tuesday, and i would hate to have to buy a purse to match my gloves.
