It’s good to have so many new faces, and to have some old friends back in the box. Cecile, Tim, Steve, and Celia getting their push ups on.I’ve Got To Hand It To You (Part 2)

This is Part Two of my four-part article on handcare. Part One dealt with basic maintenance. Since posting Part One, I have received some great recommendations for callus maintenance tools. The first is the Ped Egg and the second is the Dremel Multipro. Obviously the Ped Egg is a good choice if you don’t care what people think of you when they see a pink egg in your gym bag. The Dremel is awesome if you have money to burn or are a hobbyist of sorts and already need one for fine detail work.

This article examines first aid and care for ripped hands and torn calluses. If you train hard doing pullups, deadlifts, cleans and snatches, you will eventually tear open the calluses on your palm. These tips also can be used if you get tears from muscle ups on your wrists or if you open blisters on your feet from running or dancing. The trick is to know how to care for the rips before they put you out of commission so you can get back to training hard as soon as possible.
