In a conversation with New Atlas, Adeniran explained that "fluid resistance" is the key to the gloves. "The energy or inertia you create by extending your punches works against you when you are retracting," he said. "It's very similar to the feeling you get during a fight when the lactic acid builds in your muscles causing fatigue and failure. It's a heavy feeling in the shoulders, biceps, and core, so allowing the water to flow freely and communicate throughout the glove and around the hand more closely mimics true fighters' fatigue in the later rounds," he added.
