Get in Gear: Wrist Assured Gloves

We all love doing push-ups, right? However there are times when our wrists just don't agree with weight bearing exercise. There are wrist wedges you can use, or you can try these new Wrist Assured Gloves ($68).

The gloves are ergonomically designed to ease wrist pain. By raising the back of your hand up a bit to take pressure out of your wrist joints, the gloves help you by spreading some of the burden of supporting your body weight to your fingers. Essentially the gloves create a wearable wrist wedge. Pretty cool! The gel padding also cushions the hands and the suede palm provides traction too.

While they are a bit pricey, I think avoiding wrist pain while doing push-ups or holding a down dog for 20 breaths is priceless.

You can buy them directly from Joint Protection Products. The gloves are available in small, medium and large sizes and come with their own tote bag.

kind of pricy when you can just use barbells instead to take the pressure off of your wrists.
