Workout gloves, also called weightlifting gloves, are essential equipment for individuals who are into bodybuilding, weightlifting, or any form of weight training. These gloves, which are available for both men and women, provide better grip and support, prevent blisters or calluses from forming, and keep the hands dry, preventing nasty injuries due to sweaty hands.
The gloves are usually made from leather, which offers excellent support, or neoprene, which is great for moisture prevention. While fully covered workout gloves are available, the fingerless style is more popular because it allows the hands to breathe and stops them from becoming too sweaty.
When sending weightlifting gloves, they must be properly packed to prevent any damage. Here are tips on how to properly pack and ship workout gloves.
Wrap the pair of gloves in tissue paper and then, with bubble wrap. Use tape to secure wraps in place.
Place the wrapped gloves in an appropriately sized shipping box with ample packing materials on all sides to prevent movement. Bubble wrap, shredded paper, or crumpled newspaper can be used as fillers.
Close the box and shake a little to check for movement inside. Add more packing materials, as necessary, before sealing with packaging tape. Reinforce all seams of the box with tape to ensure that it will burst open while in transit.
Address and label the box and take to your local post office or shipping company.
