    What can I do to protect my hands while lifting? I've only done 2 workouts in the weight room so far and I'm already starting to get the beginnings of calluses on my hands. Are there weight-lifting gloves? Does anyone actually wear them without looking moronic?

    you can get gloves cheap at your local sporting goods store.

    some people like callus, i think its fucked. i don't want to shake someone's hand in a business meeting with a scabby, rough paw.

    i have better grip without gloves. but i still use gloves for dumbbell flys. other = straps or bare


    and imo, i'd prefer a female without calluses*

    I know I know. But I squat with the bar only so far. :lol: So I may end up the butt of some joke on some fitness forum full of big broly's. It will just take some time getting used to being the only female setting foot in the weight lifting room of my gym.

    The average person in the gym doesn't squat at all, so you're already a step ahead of them.

    Are you doing full squats or to parralel?
