Build Muscular Endurance with Weighted Boxing Gloves

Shadow boxing sessions and hitting the heavy bag are a great way to warm up and get a serious workout. But what if you added weighted gloves to the workout routine? Now you have the perfect formula for getting a great fat-burning cardio and muscular endurance workout!

Weighted gloves have been on the market for a few years now, but are just starting to hit their stride. It's about time, because with their added weight, (usually 1 pound per glove,) protection for the hands and compact size, they are perfect for the home gym.

Take a look at the gloves below and find one that works for you. Be sure to pay attention to the sizes, which run the same as glove sizes, and the weight options of each.

Everlast has a long standing solid reputation in the boxing world. These gloves do not disappoint. Inexpensive, with a fixed 1 lb. weight for each glove, they are perfect for building strength/endurance, and not too heavy for a longer bag session. The 'Evergel' protects and creates a comfortable mold for the hands.

TITLE weighted bag gloves are for serious hitters! Or not. These fantastic weighted bag gloves allow you to add or remove up to 4 weights through the zippered back, for up to 3.5 pounds of total weight per glove. The gloves are made of durable leather with foam padding and gel lining. Some of the best gloves for the money.

Fitness Deals for the Home Gym Space that Really Work

Sometimes a good fitness deal is actually worth having, and sometimes the bargain is best left alone. Because there are a ton of great deals on fitness equipment on the market, we choose our favorites and showcase them here when we find them. So what is a great deal on home gym equipment?

-Best price
-Good quality
-Practical application
-Easy return policy.

The first two are self-explanatory, but practical application? This may depend on who you are, but two great examples of useless but space efficient equipment are:

-Shake Weight
-The Free Flexor (if you haven't seen this, it's hilarious:


Shake weight claims to use the 'science' of dynamic inertia while free flexor "harnesses the power of circular strength technology."

The first costs about $20 to $25 dollars while the second requires $40 bucks + shipping.

A better way to spend that $75 bucks is on a good pullup bar and resistance band set up like the one from Black Mountain Products:

Or use that money for a Lifeline Jungle Gym, a much more practical and effective piece of home gym equipment that is portable and space efficient:

You could upgrade to this serious fitness deal from Lifeline that includes the improved Jungle Gym XT and a full resistance band kit for just a few more dollars:

The point is, there are a lot of great deals on home gym workout equipment; make sure the one you choose offers the best overall value for the money.
