Hello I had read an article or more of a personal log I wish I could remember who wrote it but he mentioned sleeping with gloves on to help recover has anyone tried this is there any merit to it?

I found that it irritated my joints... dunno why... I just woke up like that on more than one occasion after trying it.

When I somehow developed tendonitis in both hands from using a kindle tablet years ago, I bought some compression gloves.. They helped it heal. I still wear them once in awhile, but I need a new pair.  They help with recovery a lot.

That is very interesting. My hands are constantly tired from training and doing grip a total of 5 days per week. I need to check these things out.

As far as skin goes, there's definitely merit to moisturizing, and throwing on rubber gloves so it keeps working throughout the night. I've found this especially useful in the winter when dry, cracked hands are all too common. Soft skin definitely grips better than hard skin.

I remember reading something about this. The point of the article that I read was for keeping the hands warm to increase blood flow at night. I tried it for awhile but I can't say as it worked and I didn't enjoy wearing winter gloves to sleep, so I quit. 

I found it much more effective to recover after a workout to put my hands in ice and leave them in there for as long as I could, then hot water and back and forth for 6-8 reps. I also stretched my hands and forearms, used some rollers and balls for my hands and the Armaid for my forearms.

yup, and it gets tough for me too.. Working with my hands. Sometimes my wrists just feel stiff, and i massage them a lot and stretch them.  I'm going to buy another pair because of this thread. My hands always felt great with them. Its worth it, they are cheap enough.

Whew that sounds intense but I will have to give it a shot because I have heard of ice bath/sauna combo and that sounds like it would work similarly.

Thank you I will have to get a pair and try it out.

Cypress oil mixed with another carrier oil is great for blood flow. Rub it in before bed …gloves optional.

Im going to look into this as well but what do you mean another carrier?

Something to mix it with…you don’t really use essential oils full strength. I use castor oil; about a dime size in my palm, Then just mix a few drops of the cypress and rub in.

I've tried to soak them in ice water but didn't switch to warm afterwards. Just left them there for at least 5 minutes. Didn't help at all lol... 

I also stretch my fingers gently before grip work. I've had an online contest to do these past few weeks and trying to do as much as I can on rolling, Hub and Excalibur while training squats bench and deadlifts is brutal to my hands. I do get forearm pain once in a while. Nearly 2 decades of manual labor took good care of me lol. Sometimes I'm shocked I can still train
