I lifted with my rings on and built up a small callous.  They did scratch a little bit though (white gold) so if that will bother you, then just pin them inside your sports bra or leave them at home.

@DaneLady +1! 

You can also wear weight-lifting gloves. I know not many people do, but “technically” you’re supposed to – it’ll prevent callouses and keep your ring safe!

I don’t wear my rings when working out.  The #1 reason is because I don’t want them getting damaged.  But #2 is I would find it really difficult to work out wearing them, particularly when doing pull-ups.  I usually have to wear lifting gloves because the bar hurts my hands so much.  I bought cheap but effective ones from Dick’s Sporting Goods.

I wear my rings when I lift, but I also don’t lift a ton of weight!

@dreamer1288:  The textured bars scratch my white gold ring. I do not wear my ring when I’m lifting. Gloves might be nice as it would make some of the lifting less painful on my paws. Still, I would probably not wear my ring.

@dreamer1288:  Yes, that stupid rowing machine! Sometimes the pull down lats too depending on the weight. Yowsers!

I take mine off. Wouldn’t take the chance. You could easily bend the ring or even seriously hurt your finger.

ETA: I wear gloves and still leave the ring off. It’s the heaviness that will bend it… a glove doesn’t protect you from that!

@dreamer1288:  nope, no rings when lifting. The weights can scratch and also distort the shape. 

All my workout have little pockets at the hip, so I stash my ring in there. They’re either Lulu or Under Armours studio line, for reference.

I wear mine when I lift. It does scratch up the white gold on the inside a little bit, but it’s worth it to me not to have to worry about safely stashing/remembering my rings.

@dreamer1288:  I always take my rings off while lifting… I put them in the same spot right before heading to the gym. Even with gloves on, I’d be afraid to pinch my skin or damage my ring. FI leaves his on, though I never understood why.

I lift relatively heavy, but even still just couldn’t see it being comfortable with them on.

Always take my rings off to lift. I just don’t want to risk banging the ring or scratching and bending the metal. I wear gloves as well when needed but I’m still not comfortable leaving them on.

@castaway83:  Gloves don’t prevent calluses and don’t really protect you that much.

I always take my rings off before I lift. I’m less likely to damage my rings and my hands that way.
