This.

Using a weight less than your gloves is pointless. Using a weight heavier than your gloves will throw off your mechanics and put extra uneeded strain on your joints. Using the same weight as your gloves.... What the **** is the point? Just wear your gloves.

Overall it's either useless or bad for you.
