Pretty sure I can totally hold my own with these guys now.
Why is it then, that when I showed my new gloves to my husband, he just started giggling and saying things like, "you're so cute."
Can someone please tell him that I'm not going for "cute" - I'm a legit body builder.
Also, can someone please tell the guy in this photo how gross he looks. (Shudder.)
UPDATE: since people are asking, No, I do not plan to seriously body build. Sure, I'd like to tone up a little, but I don't ever want to look like I pump iron. However, with my new super-human work-out gloves, I might even start using (gasp) EIGHT pound weights! (I rarely go above five. Honestly.) My real motivation for the gloves was that I kept slipping off the chin-up bar and I hated touching the metal of my usual five pound weights. That's all. But I will say that with the gloves, I at least look like I belong in the weight section. And somehow I feel less intimidated to be there. End of story.
