i haven't really trained hard yet, but i think if you were to use gloves, a single Nintendo Power Glove would be the way to go.

i mean look at Captain N...  never really used the power glove, and nine episodes later, he's gone...   :'(

i'm sure if you press the a button on the glove, you'd jump really high.......



plus you'd just plain be awesome.   8)

buy a callus shaver.  you can find them at walgreens and cvs stores for about 7 bucks.  shaving your callus's will prevent them from tearing off, but will still keep the skin on your hands strong because it doesnt completely remove the callus...similar to trimming your fingernails.

aye, you'll find them past the bed section, but if you get to beyond you've gone to far.
