Greetings Michael, I Received the Weighted Hands yesterday!!! Brilliant!!! I went out this morning for my workout and was immediately taxed by the extra weight!!! Wow what a wimp!!! However, once I warmed up I initiated my regular routine and was able to cut the reps by more then half with a real serious burn. Definitely took the workout to another level! Thanks for reminding me to take it easy and not get hurt. Thanks brother for a great product! While not cheap it is money well spent!! Cheers, Prio
