Same here. I haven't tried to take the 85s anywhere in with these on b/c I am in an apt and a drop would be bad. Just lifting them with the "gripz" is solid work.
Threw the gripz on some dumbells at the end of a squat/RDL/pushpress workout this week. 3 sets of 8 hammer curls and was aching by the end - with 20lb dbs. Practice/development needed here....
