"crossfit gloves review" last friday, i did a wod with lots of pull.ups the morning after watching cirque du soleil. watching those acrobats and gymnasts inspired me to kip big. i felt great keeping a good pace in my wod until i noticed that my hands were slipping because of blood. i freaked out as i had never ripped like that before. although i like the minimalist caveman approach to crossfit, i'm now considering gloves for wods with high reps of pull.ups.
