The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    WO Gloves

    I have done a search, already(so no flaming, please.)

    Anyways, I use harbingers but would like to get higher quality gloves; which brands/styles do you guys recommend?

    Note: this question is for BBers who actually use gloves; i understand there are those of you who disagree and think it is only for women/wussy to use gloves, and i respect that. Please dont respond if this is your intention. I'm merely asking for brand names/prices. Thanks!

    I've had these for about two years now... they're pretty good but I don't really have a comparison since these were my first pair of lifting gloves
    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.

    A few friends use versa grips and love them, when I use gloves (I'm a guitar player so when I have gigs or recording dates I need to save my hands) I just buy them basically in bulk and cheap. Wal-mart ect, Buy 5 pairs for next to nothing and not worry about them wearing out

    I have the cheap ones from wal-mart. They were like 8 bucks, and with the exception of splitting a thumb seam after 7 months, they've been great. If they get too loose, I just wash and dry them.

    Workout buddy uses Valeo's, and he's had them a LONG time with no breakage.

    In "Ronnie Coleman: The Unbelievable", Ronnie wears gloves. Anyone claiming they're for pussies can take it up with him .

    Mrelwooddowd mentioned Valeo's, I'm 99% sure that's what I use and I like 'em.

    I just use the cheapest pair I found at Wal-Mart. I've had them since High School, and that was 4 years ago. They've treated me well.
