@Volkmom I like heavy gloves for bag work,
but, if he wants minimalist gloves, then wrist wraps will be necessary.https://www.walmart.com/ip/108-Everlast-Boxing-Handwraps/11996077?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&wl13=2757&adid=22222222227000129745&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=40331775632&wl4=pla-59800897191&wl5=9013144&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=local&wl12=11996077&wl13=2757&veh=sem
Wrist wraps brace your fist into proper alignment with your forearm, and help prevent injury and hand soreness.
Hmm ok ty. I think maybe something in between wraps and boxing gloves, checking out the fairtex now
Wraps are used in conjunction with gloves.
Oh I see
@Volkmom For MMA, these were my fav gloveshttps://www.dreamelitepro.com/product-page/dream-elite-pride-mma-gloves
Buuuut, they are 4 ounces, and have exposed fingers(for grappling)....
This makes them less useful for hitting the heavy bag, or sparring with your buddies. Because no one wants to practice with the guy with small gloves(it's hurts more to be hit).
Having a few pair eventually would be ideal for unique purposes...
@Deleted User your post at 2:14pm was the shit. Tyler ... I like you dude ...Thomas Morrow, the same... wish y’all lived in Northern California with me... but then again you’d all merc me after living here a week. Can’t blame ya... still Northern California is still the best spot in California... Will...
We need to get organized like our European brothers and sisters in Generation Identity...I’m sure Patrick feels the same... I know you guys beat on each other right?...
@Tyler0317 Stair machine, dude. Or walk on the treadmill at 4-4.2 mph at an incline of 5-10 for 10-15 minute increments. It’s intense
@punisher#2677 we sure do. And aye, I think our national sparring clubs are an initiative sort of like GI. Their propo vids with the camps and Muay Thai are bad ass.
@Tron I train in my garage. No machines :(
@punisher#2677 Thanks, bro. I had a good buddy from Redding CA. He swore Redding was the from the state of NorCal, the land of the sane. 😉
How do I get my girlfriend to be interested in physical fitness? She’s thin, but she has zero upper body strength.
Wew lad. That's a very case-specific question.
Yeah I figured. Just wondering if something worked for you guys
Women are sensitive and we obviously don’t want to make them feel bad
@this_that5553 without trying to invade your privacy, Is she of an identitarian bent? Red pilled, etc?
She's red pilled
Maybe approach it from a self defense stand point?
Yeah that’s what I was thinking
She just needs enough strength to carry babies around 👶 👶 👶
Self defense is a must. You need to be physically fit to defend yourself whether its with martial arts or blades or firearms
Wish me luck friends I'm doing a 5k tomorrow morning
@Warren H#1406 good luck!
Well gents happy to say the race went well. Finished in under 30 minutes, ran with lots of beautiful white families, and got a flyer for a "single and mingle" race in February.
Very cool, brother 👍🏻
When you’re 14 and your buddy is 88.
As I'm training for next 5k I'm going to try to finish at 14:00.88
Tfw no fashy gym buddies
