    Does anyone wear sweat bands on their wrists at the gym?

    I am quite a heavy sweater and I think it would probably be useful to have a wrist band to swipe across my forehead rather than constantly reaching back for my towel which I've laid over the bench.

    But, I'm worried I will look a bit of a tit to be honest, they don't really seem to be widely used (where I am anyway!). What do you reckon?

    I don't wear one, but being the only person wearing one wouldn't stop me.
    I'm sorta known for breaking social norms.

    Yes I wear them always. Many athletes do. Keeps my hands dry which is important for lifting.

    I have a very cute CHANEL one that you can't borrowicon_smile.gif

    I use it to ward off the bitches that carry around fake shit not the gym.

    I got my brother a pair for work. He likes to go all out when he is playing ping pong against Koreans.

    Though I have never seen anyone wear them at the gym, most huge bodybuilders tend to stick with gloves around here.

    Lots of people wear them here, considering it's like a billion degrees in the summer. I don't wear them because I don't sweat. But I consider them to be gym equipment, not a fashion accessory, so I'd wear them if I needed them. That would be like not wearing lifting gloves because nobody else did.

    Never have and don't really plan on ever using them- I feel like they would get in the way mentally because it's one extra thing for me to notice when working out but maybe that's just me. I'll just use my shirt if I have to.
