    WAG Bar loop size

    With the search function doing its own thing at the moment, I thought it best to just ask rather than hoping it's fixed before I need to place the order! ;) Choosing glove size was easy enough, but I don't know how to decide what loop size to get.

    For Coaches Gloves for strap bar

    Thus far, I've been having my kids train strap bar on a PVC pipe around the bar. However, I'm hearing more and more coaches saying that it's better for them to wear gloves and not use a pipe. This makes sense, and I'd like to have my boys start working strap bar this way. What sort of gloves...
