Best Boxing Gloves
Since the existence of life in
this world fight has always been a basic element for survival.
Fighting by using hands use to be the most convenient way of winning
any conflict or as a defense mechanism in early civilizations. This
tradition later on became a source of entertainment for the
bystanders and finally it became a sport. That’s how boxing came
into existence. Now as the word sport reflects a peaceful and
competitive activity, boxing can’t afford to have broken knuckles or
cracked jaw-bones. Hence ‘Boxing Gloves’ was invented as a solution.
Although Boxing gloves were invented in order to defeat the opponent
by hook or by crook but now it is more likely to be on a ‘safety
days the only things close to hand protection were leather straps
wrapped around hands and if we move on to roman era, these gentle
hand-friendly gloves turned
into killing weapon by adding brass studs and spikes. Later on,
modified versions of boxing gloves came into being and some safety
measure was considered in order to reduce serious injuries. The
gloves are now made according to the game requirement. For example,
formal matches’ gloves are used in professional matches,
training/ practice gloves
for the sole purpose of training which is usually done on a punching
bag and gender or sparring gloves accordingly.
Boxing gloves usually are
made in different styles using different material for instance in
some gloves are made up of leather or some with vinyl but mostly
nylon taffeta gloves are extensively sold as they are more
practical. In the same way different kinds of threads are also used
as per requirement.
up-to-date models of boxing gloves are made up of breathable-palm
technology in which there are tiny holes at the palm side of gloves
that can ventilate palms and dry out sweat. Other modernized
features may include thumb lock, padded wrist area and water/ sweat
resistant inner lining. These gloves usually have an adjustable
Velcro strap and leather back. The weights of gloves are vary from
comfort level of users but it is said that the heavier the gloves,
the better. Same is the case with size, it, again, depends on user’s
hands size. In order to use the gloves, they are simply slid in
hands and strapped on the wrist properly. But sometimes, people wrap
a cotton cloth around palms because this way they get a tight grip
and it also acts as a sweat soaker.
The usage of
gloves depends on the user.
Some gloves used more frequently may become worn out and would not
stay the same for long. But yes, the user should be cautious about
keeping the gloves hygienic this way
glove life can be
increased. Because of nonstop usage, the sweat in the gloves allows
bacteria to grow in them which can be harmful for the user. Some of
the ways to keep the
gloves bacteria-free are;
wrapping a cotton cloth around palm before putting on gloves, using
a glove deodorant, after using place the gloves in open air or in
front of fan, keep the gloves in a freezer for at least 24 hour
(freezing temperature kills the bacteria, but make sure u have
plastic-wrapped them) and lastly NEVER put your
gloves in a gym bag.
