I recently purchased some (different to my usual) weight lifting gloves with extra padding on the palm, really for doing tricep dips on bars. Between the fingers are some straps, so the first two fingers are connected, as are the last two. My question is... why? I've seen this on some other gloves but I don't understand how it would help with anything. The straps just get in the way.
As far as I know, they are used to get the gloves off since that's pretty hard otherwise, at least that's what I used them for when I did use gloves.
As others have said, ditch the gloves, they don't help with grip strength, since they effectively increase the diameter of anything you're going to grab, larger diameter - harder to grip.
They also don't really help against calluses since you don't get the same precision in where you are grabbing as you would bare handed.
