    Take your peer pressure and shove up your ass.
    At least tell us that you've got an old battered purse that matches them fabulously.

    I was scoffing to myself when a trainer at my gym pulled out his gloves to do smith machine shrugs, and thought "I wonder if they match his purse". Then I noticed they were black canvas, and so was the bum bag he was wearing, so I guess they did sort of match

    Harder with gloves sure. Even klokov wouldnt wear gloves for a max pull, he certainly doesn't for competitions. But for crossfit/seminar tomfoolery, why not?

    I don't think he is trolling. He's had gloves on and a towel around a bar while squatting. This was before his whole tour started. He was in a public gym training with his wife at the time.

    Started ordering stuff to build a home gym. Ordered my bar first, a B&R. They really packaged the hell out of that thing...I ended up cutting my finger open on one of the staples that broke off when I was opening the tube up lol!
