Sports Shopping

I have weight lifting gloves that I have had since 1991 when they were used for moving scenery around at college. In the past few years they have been used for weight lifting and they look like this.

I went to K-Mart this afternoon and got some new ones (25% off all sporting goods) that look like this ... much better!

I also bought a blow up sex doll inflatable punching tower which seems like a bit of a wank in theory but is much better in practice. It has water in the bottom to stop it falling over.

Instead of full on boxing gloves I got Evergel Gloves which have gel across the knuckles and wrist support. I can use these with my punching tower and also underneath proper boxing gloves when I work out with my trainer.

I just had a bit of a muck around for about 10 minutes and it sure is hard work, especially if you punch hard. Good fun!!

    Love the idea of a punching tower, man that would be good when im having a hideous day and need to take my frustration out on it

  2. Is the punching bag able to cope with much? I've thought about getting a hanging one but would need to get a frame as well so maybe an inflatable one like that would be tops.

  3. All I can say is.. ooo PINK gloves, very cute! LOL

  4. cat - it is good for the frustration

    kathryn - it seems to be fine, the harder you hit it the slower it comes back but it beats having to hang up one of those heavy bags. It seems to be holding the air in OK so far

    chris - both sets of gloves are pink - I don't own anything else pink but it's kinda cool for gloves :)

  5. Wow! These are great items. Now, you'll be more motivated to work out and sweat even more. It's really ideal to bribe yourself with these lovely things from time to time so that your motivation level is always high. :)
