shouldn't use cycling gloves for wt. training?
Part of my fitness regimen includes going to the gym to lift weights, mostly for my upper body and bench pressing no more than #100 (rotator cuffs shot). I wear bike gloves on my ride to the gym and I would use my bike gloves for weight training but my concern is that doing so would just compress the gel in my gloves, negating the vibration and shock-absorbing benefit of using them for cycling. I don't want to end up buying new gloves too regularly.
Yes, I know, it's eccentric to even be concerned about such a thing but.. humor me. Has anyone used their cycling gloves at the gym and consequentely found that they feel more vibration and shock through their gloves?
